Dani Sordo quote ahead of Mexico Rally - unique in high altitude

12.03.2023: WRC RALLY CHAMPIONSHIP MEXICO GUANAJUATO RALLY 16-19 March 2023 Crew Notes: Dani Sordo/Cándido Carrera (#6 Hyundai i20 N Rally1) • Sordo took hard-fought second place at Rally Mexico 2018 • Spaniards targeting sixth podium finis



WRC RALLY CHAMPIONSHIP
MEXICO GUANAJUATO RALLY
16-19 March 2023





Crew Notes: Dani Sordo/Cándido Carrera (#6 Hyundai i20 N Rally1)



•    Sordo took hard-fought second place at Rally Mexico 2018


•    Spaniards targeting sixth podium finish as a partnership
 




Sordo said: “Rally México is an amazing event with really nice roads. The fans and spectators there have a lot of energy and passion which creates a great atmosphere for rallying.


It is also unique as the high altitude causes the cars to have less power, making them feel a little bit different. Physically you have to be ready as the lack of oxygen and heat makes it very demanding on the body; it definitely makes you more tired.


Our target for the rally is to finish as high as possible and we hope that is near the top. If we get it right, we believe we can be in the battle for victory, but we want to be on the podium as a minimum.”
