Ford challengers have tough times in dirt ridden Mexican roads
Dry and dirty conditions prevailing in Mexico hampered the prospective of BP Ford Abu Dhabi World Rally Team for the second round of the FIA World Rally Championship. The dirt roads made Jari-Matti Latvala and Miikka Anttila and championship leaders Mikko Hirvonen and Jarmo Lehtinen to put something extra to reach at the finish.
Mexico, a beautiful city that figures in the list of UNESCO World Heritage Site, witnessed a large crowd last night to be a part of the spectacular start ceremony. There were music and colorful events across the streets of Guanajuato last night as the people showed a great deal of interest to see leading drivers who were here to participate in the event.
Hirvonen, who won the Rally Sweden last month, took the lead to start the event while Latvala was third in the start order. Hirvonen told, "I was too careful and cautious on the opening stage. I didn't drive well and couldn't find a rhythm."
