WRC Citroen Ireland Preview

One thing is certain: the outcome of the 2007 World Rally Championship will be decided in the British Isles, and quite possibly on the first of the season's last two fixtures – the inaugural Rally Ireland – for which Citroën Sport has entered two C4 WRCs for Sébastien Loeb/Daniel Elena and Dani Sordo/Marc Martí.

After visits earlier in the year to Norway and Portugal, the Irish round is the third and final newcomer to the 2007 WRC calendar. The event is based in Sligo, in the northwest corner of the island, and a special feature of the route is the fact that it straddles two countries: the Republic of Ireland and Ulster. A total of 20 stages are programmed over the three legs, the first of which is the longest of the rally with no less than 168km of against-the-clock action… practically half the weekend's total competitive distance.

WRC Subaru Ireland Preview

The event

Following the long-haul trip to Japan at the end of last month, November takes the Subaru World Rally Team closer to home, to Rally Ireland and the penultimate round of the 2007 World Rally Championship. A new addition to the WRC calendar, this year is the first that Rally Ireland has been run as a World Rally Championship round,

There are only 18,000 inhabitants in the small west coast town of Sligo, home to Rally HQ and the service park. It is located approx 200km from Belfast, which plays host to the event-opening Super Special in the grounds of Stormont castle. The last asphalt outing of the year, the stages are unusually bumpy, quite unlike any other sealed surface rally and will make for an unique challenge.

Driver quotes

Richard Taylor, Subaru World Rally Team managing director: “We haven’t had the opportunity to test in Ireland this year, but we have the benefit of knowledge gained by the many customer cars that are running and winning in Ireland. We know it’s going to be a great challenge with very different tarmac roads to any other round and we’re looking forward to it. It will be very exciting that there will likely be more Subaru WRC cars than at any other World Championship rally. I hope that we and all the other Subaru entries will put on a strong performance for the fans.”

Paul Howarth, Subaru World Rally Team operations director: “Rally Ireland is very different to a normal Irish tarmac event, as they’ve come up with an unique route. It’s very narrow, only one car width in places, and very high speed, especially in the beginning section. There are a lot of junctions and switchbacks from main roads to narrow back routes. The roads are often damp, and it is very easy to go off. Two elements will be absolutely critical: tyre choice and staying on the road. It’s very hard to maintain tyre temperature, and as it’s so narrow there is only one line. All it takes is to touch the grass with the rear and the car will be instantly sideways. It’s so unforgiving, and if the pace is fast then we can expect a similar rate of attrition to Japan.”

Car number 7

Petter Solberg: “I have never rallied in Ireland before so it will be very new for me, but I am looking forward to it. The fans in Ireland are rally-mad which is really good. It’s always nice to drive in front of people who are really into it. It would have been good to do a few rallies earlier in the year to get a feel for the surface, but still we prepare and focus 110 per cent. It will be very interesting I think, especially with the chance that the 2007 championship can be decided there.”

Car number 8

Chris Atkinson: “Rally Ireland is a totally different event, not just in terms of the bumpy surface. Being a new round it’s very difficult to prepare for. We’ve driven the route in a Group N car, but the extra speed of the WRC car is bound to make it very different. When everything comes up faster, it becomes more difficult as you have to process the information faster, and when it is all new that is the hard part. The surface is half asphalt and half gravel, which means we have to use an unique setup. We actually set the car up for the wet to get the compromise between the two surfaces, and the high chance of rain. Rather than when the asphalt gets wet and slippery, it’s when the asphalt is totally dry that you lose time.”

Car number 14

Xevi Pons: “I haven’t been to Ireland before so it’s another new weekend for me. Ok, it will be a hard rally and very slippery, so it will be easy to make a mistake but I will push as hard as I can. We haven’t done any testing there so I don’t really know what to expect from the conditions, but I still prepare in the same way as any rally, and learn as fast as I can from the recce days.”

Between the rallies

Chris and Petter stayed on in Japan for media functions for the recent launch of the Impreza WRX STi road car. The pair then travelled to the UK for pre-event testing at the beginning of the month. Phil Mills, Stephane Prevot, and the duo of Xevi and Xavier Amigo all spent time at home.

Title tension tightens as BP-Ford prepares for WRC finale

BP-Ford World Rally Team heads into the final three weekends of the FIA World Rally Championship season in head-to-head fights for both the manufacturers' and drivers' titles. Two rallies remain in that three-week period and the squad makes the short journey to Rally Ireland (15 - 18 November) in the knowledge that this series newcomer could prove the toughest challenge of the 16-round year.

The team goes into the event with a 34-point lead in the manufacturers' standings in its quest for a second consecutive title with the Ford Focus RS World Rally Car. A maximum 36 points are available, meaning that BP-Ford still requires three points to seal the crown. The drivers' battle is the most exciting for many years. BP-Ford's Marcus Grönholm and Timo Rautiainen lead by four points from Sébastien Loeb with a maximum 20 available from Ireland and the final round in Great Britain.
