FRIDAY’S action at Rally Guanajuato Mexico was delayed after the transport of rally cars back to León from Mexico City was hit by a major traffic holdup.
Following Thursday night’s opening street tests in Zócalo square, a convoy of transporters carrying the cars was stopped when the motorway between the two cities was closed for almost six hours because of an accident involving non-rally vehicles.
The transporters and team support staff did not reach León until almost 8.30am, just 90 minutes before the first full day of competition was due to start.
As a result, organisers cancelled the first passes through the marathon 54.90km El Chocolate and 19.68km Las Minas stages and were examining options to reschedule the day’s itinerary.
