Rally Argentina - A muddy tango in the heart of Latin America

Rally Argentina - A muddy tango in the heart of Latin America

21.04.2017: From European asphalt to Latin American gravel The World Rally Championship is all about seeing who is the very

From European asphalt to Latin American gravel



 
The World Rally Championship is all about seeing who is the very best driver in the world: capable of going fast no matter what the road and conditions look like. To find that out, you have to go everywhere and try everything.


 
After the twisty mountain roads of Corsica in a European spring, the next stop is the colder and often wet gravel of Argentina in South America during autumn. Two situations that couldn’t provide a bigger contrast.



That all adds to the mix we’ve seen so far on this adrenaline-fuelled world tour: slippery roads near Monte-Carlo, snow and ice in Sweden, plus rocks, gravel and heat in Mexico.


 
Who’s come off best so far? Well, that’s a tough one to call. Four different manufacturers have won the first four rallies, and the top three drivers in the title race – Sebastien Ogier, Jari-Matti Latvala and Thierry Neuville – all come from different teams (and countries) as well. It couldn’t be closer.


 
Can the man sitting on top of the pile, France’s four-time world champion Sebastien Ogier, keep his grip on the championship?





Watch Red Bull TV next week, with a mixture of live and highlights programmes from Argentina, to catch all the action. One thing’s for sure: it’s going to be spectacular.
