The season 2015 of Volkswagen Motorsport has been almost pristine. Title of pilots, co-pilots and builders as well as evidence, in addition to some particular achievements that have complemented the performance of the German manufacturer, as the first victory and Andreas Mikkelsen at the Rally RACC Catalunya. The team signed a great record of 11 victories from 12 possible in the year so far, and expects to close on the stages of the Rally of Wales with another win. Sébastien Ogier wants to remove the thorn of your last error, Andreas Mikkelsen is seeking his second victory and Jari-Matti Latvala to close the year with victory.
Sébastien Ogier has won the last two editions of the Rally of Wales, and is the big favorite. The French arrive with a desire to return to the path of victory after having to leave on the last leg of the Rally RACC and be in a position delayed in the Tour de Corse. Although it has achieved its third title, you can say between quotation marks, which is in a bad streak, as Ogier had not been two consecutive tests off the podium since the end of 2012. Data your tremendous regularity.
Before traveling to Wales, Sébastien Ogier wrote: “it Is a shame that our Rally RACC ended as it did. I’m looking forward to compete in Britain. The stages are very special, although there is very little grip. When you pilot in Wales, no matter the weather forecast, the roads will be slippery in any case“. Despite his last two failures, Ogier is practical: “We have won three championships and we can finish the season without any pressure. Needless to say, I want to win in Great Britain. In fact, any pilot wants to win in Wales before vacation”.
Jari-Matti Latvala earn five consecutive podiums. From
his victory in Finland has been first or second in each test
championship, for what comes in the best time to try to get your
third victory in the Rally of Wales. The Finnish is very motivated: “The
special is played on forests with sections of fast and fluid. Reminds Me of a
little in the Rally of Finland. Wales is a place with a lot of great
experiences for me. I made my debut in the WRC in 2002 there and I won the rally
in 2011 and 2012. I would love to repeat this feat this year”.
Andreas Mikkelsen is in a cloud. The face of unbelief
in the Power Stage of the Rally RACC Catalunya when he was told that he had
achieved its first victory in the WRC said it all. The Norwegian already knows what
that is to win a rally in the World, and with that experience expected to repeat before
close 2015: “The victory was very special. We arrived in Wales without any
type of pressure and is a test with which I also have a special connection.
I moved there to get a driver’s license and also participate in my
first rally of the WRC in Wales“.
