The 2009 Rally Argentina is on the 23rd-26th April. It is a traditional gravel rally with lots of fast sections but also has some technical parts that could catch some drivers out. But the main part that spices things up are the watersplashes. They are simply a river crossing that the drivers have to go over, but that risks breaking the engine as Petter Solberg can tell you. This year, the drivers will face 23 stages in the mountains. There are many classic stages such as El Condor and Capilla De Monte. Sebastien Loeb will be hoping to extend his lead in the championship over Mikko Hirvonen. Will he do it? You can find all of the news, stage and split times at [1].
