Thierry Neuville says Rally Mexico “has some great memories” for him as he gears up for the third round of the season next weekend.
Despite never yet winning the rally, the North America event has seen him finish on the podium three times in his WRC career and the man second in the Drivers Standings wants to change that record on the 2020 edition of the event.
Neuville said about the upcoming gravel even: “Rally México is the first ‘summer’ event with hotter temperatures than we faced in Monte and Sweden, as well as high altitude and some demanding long stages.”
“They are tough conditions, especially as one of the first cars on the road. I have great memories of Mexico, including our first podium with Hyundai Motorsport, and my first-ever WRC top-three finish the year before. It has always been one of the rallies I wanted to win; I was never quite able to achieve it, but it would be nice to change that this year.”
Going into the third round of the 2020 season, Neuville lies behind Elfyn Evans in the Drivers’ championship despite tied on the same number of points.
Round three of the 2020 FIA World Rally Championship takes place between March 12-15, with daily updates here on The Checkered Flag.
