Rally Argentina

First run in 1980 in the guise of Rally Codasur, the Argentina round of the WRC found its home in Cordoba just a few years later, in 1984. The event has since increased in popularity with almost one million spectators lining the stages during 2017 to witness an historic win for our team.

Rally Argentina is made up of gravel stages that combine soft roads in the Santa Rosa de Calamuchita Valley with rockier, more narrow routes in the Traslasierra Mountains. Stages can become heavily rutted for the second pass, requiring crews to raise their ride heights. All eyes will again be on the El Condor Power Stage, which offered a thrilling finale to the 2017 event.
