Latvala Looking to Bounce Back In Argentina

1 Mins read

With the 2015 FIA World Rally Championship entering it’s second quarter in Argentina it’s make or break time for Finland’s Jari Matti Latvala.

The Volkswagen Motorsport driver lies in sixth place in the series after the first three rounds, 62 points off championship leader and Volkswagen teammate Sebastien Ogier.

The season started well for the Finn with second place on the championship opener in Monte Carlo but this result was followed by retirement in Sweden and 15th place in Mexico.

With his championship hopes slipping away Latvala will be hoping to turn things around on Rally Argentina. Having taken victory here last year and third in 2013 the Finn is capable of getting a good result.

“I am really looking forward to the Rally Argentina.” said Latvala “It is a gravel rally, but very different to the Rally Mexico. The surface in Argentina is far sandier, not as hard, and there is far more grip.  Miikka [Anttila, co-driver] and I won here last year. We’ll have to wait and see whether we can repeat that feat – Sébastien Ogier is very strong at the moment. 

Rally Argentina commences on April 23rd.
