This week continues the saga that is the World Rally Championship. Will road sweeping finally stop two time World Champion Sebastien Ogier’s winning streak? Or will the dust prove to be to his advantage leading the pack? Who else will contend for the top of the podium? Will we see another dramatic fight for the win like Sweden or another desperate transit to the final time control like Thierry Neuville experienced last year? Get ready for the high altitude and hot action that is Rally Mexico!!
WRC Live Radio will be covering the stages all weekend long, this time with a special guest stage end reporter named Emyr Penlan. Emyr covers rally for the Welsh Ralio+ radio. Let’s hope he’ll just stick to English at the stage ends though (I bet he slips when he gets excited though!)
