While all the attention in the WRC lies in
Portugal, Tommi Mäkinen Racing has completed the second test of the Toyota Yaris
WRC 2017. After testing in the fast sections of the centre, the Finnish team
suomi has moved to Spain for this second test on gravel. With a
different sound and more acute engine 1.6 Turbo that mounts to this model, Tommi
Mäkinen has been faced with the stretches a lot more slow and technical of Catalonia.
Despite the poor data collected during the three test days, true
is that the team has not been without problems.
Thanks to the videos of Jaume Soler not only have we been able to see the performance of Tommi Mäkinen and the Yaris WRC, but to be ‘witnesses’ of the problems that have affected the team during the tests. Despite this, the Finnish team has not given up on his fine humor to the look the review ∞ / 0 x 2 on your windows, playing with the fact of being the second test of the vehicle and at the same time with the own mathematical formula that would say something like ‘I do not know the double of what you don’t know’
In any case, the test in Catalan lands has been a
both sweet and sour due to the above-mentioned problems. And is that Tommi Mäkinen has
had two great surprises throughout their test in Catalunya, as
during the first day, damaged the front left suspension to shorten
too much in a slow curve. For its part, during the third day of testing
Toyota Yaris WRC suffered engine problems leaving a wake of white to your
step, in addition to losing oil. Without a doubt, Tommi Mäkinen Racing should work
the reliability of their World Rally Car for future tests.
