Pilots of Arctic Energy WRT demonstrated the best shakedown results in their class continuing a successful series in the WRC (let us remind you that the Russian team was the silver medalist of the last stage in Mexico). But, by a twist of fate, technical failures haunted the crew from the first day of the race, while the major failure occurred with the engine, the one that earlier conquered harsh conditions of Rally Sweden. The pilots were prepared to continue the race pursuant to the "super rally" system. But Deividas Jocius and Donatas Zvicevicius were not able to return to the track. Having evaluated sustained damages, mechanics of Arctic Energy decided that they would not be able to fix the damage in the service park. The team made a decision not to participate in the final day of Rally Corsica.
The next stop of the World Rally Championship is Rally Argentina, WRC goes over the ocean again. The Cordoba round will take place in two weeks, from April 26 to 29.
