With the stage run in reverse order, Kostka, a Czech touring car racer and rallysprint competitor of note, was the 86th of 99 drivers to tackle the test, which was momentarily interrupted to enable organisers to deal with an unruly spectator.

Jan Kopecky picked up a last-gasp Rally Islas Canarias win when rival Andreas Mikkelsen’s Skoda UK Fabia developed a misfire on the very last stage. Mikkelsen appeared to have done enough to win his event-long battle with fellow works Skoda driver Kopecky, taking a 3.6-second lead into the final stage despite his Czech sparring partner being fractionally quicker on the deciding afternoon. But the misfire cost Mikkelsen nearly half a minute, robbing him of what would have been his first victory on asphalt, and halting his streak of Intercontinental Rally Challenge wins

Although Mikkelsen (Skoda UK) had been sceptical about his chances of taking a fourth straight IRC victory as he has never won on asphalt so far, he was fractionally quickest on every stage so far this morning and pulled out a 3.6-second lead over Skoda Motorsport’s Kopecky.

Audi motorsport chief Wolfgang Ullrich believes diesel technology’s recent domination of sportscar racing happened because his team and Peugeot did too good a job, not because the rules favoured diesel power. The balance between alternative engine types has been a contentious topic in Le Mans racing ever since Audi’s first diesel LMP1 emerged in 2006, and diesels have been further restricted this year, when Audi will enter both the latest version of its diesel R18 and a new hybrid. Ullrich believes the diesel advantage was accentuated in recent seasons because no major manufacturers were running petrol engines – making it impossible to judge how much of Audi and Peugeot’s superiority was down to their status as the sport’s largest teams, and how much due to them running diesels

Loic Duval has revealed that he turned down a offer from Peugeot to join Audi for this year’s Le Mans 24 Hours. The 29-year-old Frenchman, who was announced as part of Audi’s 12-driver Le Mans line-up on the launch of its 2012 sportscar programme last night, confirmed that he tested for the factory Peugeot squad at the end of last summer and was in detailed talks with the French manufacturer

Andreas Mikkelsen extended his lead over Juho Hanninen through the first four stages of day two of Rally Azores. There was little to choose between the two Skoda drivers until Hanninen had a quick spin near the end of SS5, losing 10 seconds. Mikkelsen then stretched his advantage on the next stage, and although Hanninen won SS7, he only took a tenth off the reigning Intercontinental Rally Challenge champion and the gap between them now stands at 15.4s.

Nicolas Lapierre starts 2012 as a factory race driver for the first time in his career.
January 30th, 2012
Nicolas Lapierre says he felt Toyota was a better option for his sportscar career than a potential Peugeot seat even before the French manufacturer withdrew from Le Mans racing. Lapierre won last year’s Sebring 12 Hours in an ORECA-run Peugeot, and admitted that he had talks with Peugeot over joining its works team. But he was ultimately announced as part of the driving strength for Toyota’s return to sportscars’ top class.
