After the successful weekend at Rally Sweden, Pontus Tidemand and his co-driver Patrik Barth don’t have to wait long for their next outing. Already in a few weeks, they will be back in the WRC, ready to take on Rally Mexico together with Toksport WRT.
“The team was very pleased with our performance in Sweden so when and where our next rally was going to be quickly became a subject of discussion” said Pontus. “Patrik and I really enjoyed Rally Sweden and when everything worked so well, we were very eager to get back in the car. Toksport are very professional and our team work was perfect all the way, so we are both happy and grateful that we will soon cross the Atlantic for some more rallying.”
Pontus has previously competed at Rally Mexico two times, in 2017 and 2018, and at both occasions, he took the win in the WRC 2 class with his SKODA Fabia R5. Now he is hoping to repeat the success.
“Rally Mexico is such a cool event from start to finish and the heat and the thin air up in the mountains make it a demanding rally, but I think and hope that it can suit us well this year too. We had a good start to the season so now we just need to hold on to that vibe and continue on the same positive note. I’m really looking forward to this” said Pontus.
Rally Mexico takes place between 12th and 15th of March.
