Sordo celebrates after winning in a MINI
Story from www.wrc.com
Sordo, who has claimed 32 podium finishes since stepping up to the WRC’s top class in 2006, guided his Prodrive-built MINI John Cooper Works S2000 to first place on the Mediterranean island of Corsica alongside co-driver Carlos del Barrio. The event counted as a round of the IRC series.
The MINI S2000 is a slightly less powerful and advanced version of the MINI WRC he uses in the world championship. It ran without fault during the three-day rally, which began in Ajaccio and finished in Bastia.
“I’m really happy to win this rally but it was really hard,” said Sordo. “I had to keep pushing to keep the concentration up and not make any mistakes. The MINI is also a very, very good car.”
Sordo won’t contest the next round of the WRC, the Acropolis Rally in Greece, but will be back for Brother Rally New Zealand, which starts in Auckland on 21 June, when he will be back behind the wheel of a Prodrive WRC Team MINI.
