MOTORSPORT: Sordo's hopes are on the up
11:00am Saturday 5th May 2012 in Sport
Dani Sordo will drive the upgraded Mini John Cooper Works Super 2000 at the Rally Corsica, which gets under way on Wednesday.
Banbury-based Prodrive have applied the enhancements introduced on the World Rally Car at the Rally Portugal on to the S2000 car.
All the modifications are identical except for the revised front bumper and large rear wing, which are not applicable under S2000 regulations.
The upgrades include the new induction system and electric water pump on the 1.6-litre turbo engine.
Sordo’s car was shaken down by Prodrive technical director, David Lapworth, who was driving the car for the first time.
Lapworth said: “The car is even better than I could have hoped, indeed the changes almost seem to have an even greater impact on this car than the WRC.”
