    I couldn't find the Rally Argentina thread, so I will post it here.

    There are rumours saying that Federico Villagra will drive a fourth Toyota Yaris in Rally Argentina. Local media is reporting:

    https://www.cadena3motor.com/noticia...to-0&id=253237

    To me it's a bit strange, as in the recent years Villagra has been driving a Ford Fiesta Maxi in the National Championship, with some support of Ford. He also competed in Dakar a few years ago with Ford and lately in trucks class.

    On one hand, would make more sense, as Pechito López is a Toyota driver.

    But on the other hand I don't think he ever competed in rally.

    4th Yaris in Argentina: Lopez was original idea, but WEC calendar clashes with Rally Srgentina, therefore the talks for another driver

    Tom Kristensson (JWRC) is also "his boy" so I´m expecting that all 3 will test FiestaWRC19.

    It looks like Federico Villagra with codriver Virginia Klus will be part of the WRC class with a fourth Toyota. Virginia is usually the codriver of his father on a Mitsubishi Lancer EVO IX.

    Here Villagra and Klus when they shared a Maxi Rally Ford Fiesta in 2019


    Villagra is very experienced starting with motocross since he was 12 years old, then he started with rally cars. He raced on some races of the world championship between 1998 and 2011 (even have had his own rally team on the world championship).

    Between Villagra (9) and Marcos Ligato (4) they count 13 of the last 14 argentine rally championship. Said that, obviosly he seems old for this kind of cars but it's an one off race. There are youngest drivers but with lack of experience.
