Day 1, 2 - Rally Guanajuato, Mexico | WRC - 2013

Opening leg 1 & 2 of Rally Guanajuato, Mexico went on well with the top 10 drivers without big drama. But it was the unlucky Latvala, who damaged his suspension's lower-wishbone after hitting a stone on the second leg of the rally.

By the end of Day 2, it is VW Polo R WRC driver Sebastien Ogier who leads the rally with a good 33 secs ahead of Qatar M-Sport WRT driver Mads Ostberg, and Mikko Hirvonen in his Citroen DS3 WRC who closed into the third overall.


Day 1, was short 2 tarmac stages around the Historic city of Guanajuato. Thierry Neuville in his Ford Fiesta M-Sport WRC and SS2 was enough for Sebastien Ogier to finish the day in his favour with his VW Polo R WRC car.

Day 2 - was the biggest challenge in the entire rally as it had 11 special stages to finish, all inclusive of the two short special stages and the city based ultra short stage in the account. With a total of 160.75 km over the SS's, and the surface from dusty gravel to cobble-stone-concrete-mix paved roads. Norwegian Mads Ostberg managed to drive up the leaderboard on SS4 & SS5, only to succumb later to pressure by the Frenchman. Later on, Ogier went from strength-to-strength to widen the gap to 33 secs by the end of Leg 2, to start ahead of the crowd on Day 3/Leg 3.

It was the local hero, Benito Guerra in the privateer seat of Citroen DS3 WRC, who was the obvious choice of the locals to cheer their home-grown talent in the top sport. He finished the day in overall 8th, ahead of the much experienced Martin Prokop [ Ford Fiesta RS WRC] and Australian driver Chris Atkinson in Khalid Al-Qassimi's Citroen DS3 WRC car.
