Watch a Rally-Prepped Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 Fly Through Tour de Corse - RoadandTrack.com

YouTube FIA World Rally Championship

There's no doubt the stars of the show during this year's World Rally Championship series are the factory supported Ford Fiesta, Citroen DS3, and Hyundai i20 hatchbacks. But those cars aren't the only things being flung around the stages. Privately run teams make entries as well, and some of them bring out extremely cool machines.

Take this Porsche 911 GT3 RS 4.0 for example. It started out as a normal road car, but was converted to compete in stage rallies around the world in the FIA's R-GT class. The car got a new suspension, a cage, and some heavy duty wheels, but kept its lovely 4.0-liter flat six and huge wing.

Evans grabs early WRC lead in Argentina - Racer

Welshman Elfyn Evans heads the Rally Argentina leaderboard after a string of fastest times in the morning loop of Friday stages before the crews head into the super special. The Fiesta WRC driver already has over 20 seconds in hand to Jari-Matti Latvala, who moved up into second after Kris Meeke launched his C3 off the road and dropped over six minutes. The Northern Irish driver has now been forced to retire, alongside teammate Craig Breen who suffered with a damaged gearbox.

Rally Argentina got underway last night with the opening super special stage in the city of Cordoba, where reigning FIA World Rally Champion Sebastien Ogier set the pace. This morning, however, the crews headed south into the Santa Rosa de Calamuchita mountains for the first of two loops of three stages and a short blast around another super special stage. Evans set the pace immediately, capitalizing on his...

Evans leads after dramatic Rally Argentina openers

Elfyn Evans has stormed into a shock half-minute lead on the Rally Argentina after the opening five stages as the rough stages took their toll on many of the anticipated front runners.

Making the most of his relatively lowly running order, Evans also capitalised on a series of issues afflicting his better fancied counterparts to emerge out front coming into the midday service park.

Regardless of the dramas around him, Evans was in fine form driving the DMACK-shod M-Sport Ford Fiesta, notching up a trio of stage wins to stretch out a 30secs lead over Jari-Matti Latvala in the Toyota.

Mads Ostberg – returning to WRC action this weekend – and Ott Tanak made it three Fiestas inside the top four just under 40secs off the top spot, the quartet ending the first morning as the only drivers to complete the five stages without any noticeable problems.

Indeed, it was a difficult morning for...

Hayden Paddon powers around a right hand bend on his way to victory at Rally Argentina last year.

"Absolutely maximum attack."

Hayden Paddon is crystal clear what his approach will be as he bids to kick-start his World Rally Championship season in Argentina.

Fourth overall last year, including a historic victory in Argentina, Kiwi driver Paddon has been unable to get near that kind of success so far in 2017.

The Kiwi driver, right, and co-pilot John Kennard celebrate their historic success in 2016.

The Kiwi driver, right, and co-pilot John Kennard celebrate their historic success in 2016.

A retirement, a seventh, a fifth and a sixth left the Hyundai team member languishing in eighth after four rounds, something he was determined to change.
