WRC 2012 : ADAC Rally Deutschland [Germany]

The 9th round of FIA WRC season 2012 is scheduled for this weekend, & already we can see many changes on the competition. The changes are largely visible in the Mini WRC stable. Armindo Araujo had to move out of much trouble to continue with the privateer seat of the top level Rally competition at world level. Dani Sordo is still at the no.1 spot for Mini WRC Team and their other car been driven by the well experienced Australian, Chris Atkinson which is going to be a really good for the Mini WRC assault for the rest the season.

Citroen's Qatar WRC team did their testing too, with Nasser returning after his successful and medal winning Olympics in London 2012 during the NORF days.

So does his team-mate the Belgian, Thierry Neuville..

Ford WRC team's now no.1 driver Petter tests his Fiesta for a better asphalt setup for the upcoming rally on a couple of day from now.

With all these testing and latest changes happening in this season 2012, Citroen WRT main attack would be the one to watch out. Latvala's pace from the last season on the sealed surface was pretty promising, but!! what he and his team needs is consistency and not plain attack. Hope the first proper the hard surface rally makes it a fun to watch in the homeland of the VW's who would be soon back on the rage with their super-anticipated Polo R WRC with the 'other' Seb behind the wheel. Also it is almost confirmed that behind their second wheel would be Ford's Latvala & that leaves us wondering what would be the filler in the Ford WRC team. Hope there will be more competition than ever!!
