The first gravel round of the season awaits the TOYOTA GAZOO #racing World #Rally Team on #Rally #mexico from March 8 to 11. On what is one of the toughest events of the season for the cars, the team hopes to demonstrate the progress made with the Toyota Yaris WRC and build upon a promising start to the year: the team sits second in the manufacturers' championship (just one point behind first place) with Jari-Matti Latvala, Esapekka Lappi and Ott Tänak all within the top five in the drivers' standings.
Rally #mexico is characterised by high ambient temperatures in the region of 30°C, as well as the altitude of the #Rally route. This reduces the amount of air available to the engines, which in turn cuts power by as much as 20 per cent.
The #Rally will begin in spectacular fashion on Thursday with a stage on the streets and through the tunnels of Guanajuato. Further spectator-friendly stages will be held on Leon's streets and at the local #racing circuit on both Friday and Saturday. Friday's schedule also includes two runs of the El Chocolate stage: the longest stage of the #Rally at 31.44 kilometres and also featuring the highest point of the season at more than 2700 metres above sea level. The #Rally will conclude with three stages on Sunday, with the second pass of Las Minas serving as the Power Stage.
