WRC Mexico Rally 2017

March 9, 2017 - March 12, 2017 - The Mexico Rally will provide the moment of truth for the new-generation World Rally cars, with reliability tested to the maximum in their first time in competition on gravel. Over 200,000 fans are expected in Mexico City for a new curtain-raising stage in the main square, famous for the opening scene helicopter fight in the James Bond film Spectre. During the rally proper the route climbs to the season’s highest point at 2,737m, where engines lose 20 percent power in the thin air, meaning mistakes are punished more severely as it takes longer to accelerate back to top speed.
