The winners talk about their tyres
An important part of the success in Turkey
Marcus Gronholm clinched his 23rd WRC career win in Turkey. Road conditions were particularly difficult. Mud, gravel and a few asphalt sections were sometimes dry or wet with rain falling intermittently during the event. Even snow
was seen in the higher altitude mountain stage roads.

In these conditions, the performance of the BFGoodrich tyres helped Marcus Gronholm and Ford to take a clear victory in Turkey.

Marcus Grönholm
"The tyre package I chose for this event didn't include many soft compound tyres. Even so, the medium compound g-Force Profiler '9-' (medium/soft) and 9 (medium) that I used on Saturday afternoon and Sunday morning worked perfectly. Good weather information and good 'cuts' adapted to the conditions both played a key role in our success."

Malcolm Wilson, Ford WRT Team Principal
"Our first one-two of the year is a dream result for the whole team. Thanks to Marcus and Mikko, we now lead the Manufacturers standings and I would like to associate BFGoodrich in this achievement because the tyres, tyre choices and 'cut' choices were all decisive given the extremely difficult challenge we faced this weekend."

Aimé Chatard, Manager of BFGoodrich's Rally Programme
“We didn't think we would find conditions like this in Turkey. Not with this much rain and mud. BFGoodrich's technicians and 'cutters' did a first class job when it came to helping make some difficult tyre and 'cut' choices.
The drivers essentially had a range of three main types of 'cut' they could choose from: the 'half cut', the 'full cut' and the 'extra full cut' which included an additional circumferential groove, a technique we are called upon to use just once every two years!

“There were also quite a lot of punctures and that was practically inevitable since the mud tended to conceal many of the rocks. Thanks to the mousse inserts, these punctures didn't have any effect on the results amongst the WRC runners, but they did have consequences in the ranks of the JWRC which outlaws the use of run-flat mousse.

“This weekend was a big challenge for Colin McRae. Early in the event, he tended to put his times down to poor tyre choices but it soon became apparent that he was suffering from a lack of match practice and testing. His run underlined two things: a) that Loeb and Grönholm have been on a planet of their own this season and b) the importance of the osmosis between the driver and his tyre technician and their work done in testing together, especially when conditions are as difficult as they were this weekend."

Michel Ducher, BFGoodrich technician delegated to work with Kronos
"Tyre packages for Turkey had to be registered with the FIA by October 2 which was before the confirmation of Colin's entry, so Colin had to run with Loeb's choice. This package was quite well suited to the conditions since it enabled two-thirds of the rally to be covered on soft tyres. I believe Colin suffered from his lack of knowledge of these products which have evolved significantly since 2003. The weekend's conditions meant it was vital to know them inside out in order to make the most of them."
