WRC Rally Argentina

 

    • Rally Codasur: Rally Argentina is a part of WRC calendar from 1980, with exceptions in 1982 due to Falklands war and 1995 & 2010, when it was held, but did not count for WRC ranking. First two editions of the rally were called Rally Codasur.
    • Altitude and water splashes: the rally stages occur or climb on high altitudes, invariably highest in WRC calendar, which means thinner air affecting engine air intake and consequently its performance. Rally also features the most water splashes as route crosses small rivers and streams, which also can mean trouble for the crews, when water gets into mechanical parts.
    • Surface: gravel (soft roads on the lower stages vs. narrow rocky tracks in the mountains)
    • First winner: winner of the first edition in 1980 was Walter Rohrl with Fiat 131 Abarth.
    • Most wins: Sebastien Loeb – 8 (2005-09, 2011-13), followed by Biason, Sainz and Makinen with 3, respectively.
    • Most known stage: El Condor-Copina (narrow hairpins with fast and wide bends on gravel).
    • Most team wins: Citroen – 10, Lancia – 6, Toyota & Mitsubishi -3.
    • Fastest average speed: Hannu Mikkola – Audi Quattro A2 – 121,60 km/h
    • Number of different winners: 20 in 33 editions
    • Longest and shortest total stage distance: 1981 (1332,6km), 2007 (248,2km).
