Catalunya has become the epicenter of the test of the WRC
this last week with M-Sport and Toyota Gazoo Racing test its World Rally
Cars of 2017 and Hyundai Motorsport working face of the Rally RACC. For this reason and
with the aim of getting away from the spotlights that have been focused on the sections
Catalan, Volkswagen Motorsport has opted to complete its last test in
Finland
, returning to a scenario in which Marcus Grönholm has already tested the
future model of the German house more than a year ago. Jari-Matti Latvala has been
the manager get behind the wheel of the Polo R WRC 2017
in the first
instance.

The fast sections finns are full of crests and jumps are the perfect scenario in which to test the performance of the engine that equips the Volkswagen Polo R WRC 2017. A propeller for the new season shoots their power figures at around the 400 CV of power thanks to the use of a flange of 36 mm suspensions due to the many jumps and the own aerodynamics thanks to the high speeds that are reached -the fastest of the season – will also be evaluated in this test session.

all in all, the Volkswagen Polo R WRC did not present big novelties, something
logical to be up to date on the World Rally Car new
generation that is closer to its final specification. The
approval is next and this test is almost an exercise in control
the work that has made the mark during the past few months. In fact,
this test session will be quite meteoric
Jari-Matti Latvala and
the remaining Volkswagen drivers should be present in the
reconnaissance for the Rally RACC Catalunya that are held in
the two days prior to the start of the test Spanish.
