Corona Rally Mexico is Tough for Former Rally Champ
The 2007 Corona Rally Mexico is the third qualifying round in the FIA World Rally Championship. The event begins and ends in the same place, Leon, Guanajuato Mexico.

International competitors pitted themselves against some of the world’s finest racers over 530 miles of different kinds of terrain. At least 80 registered drivers raced through 20 challenging stages. On the first day, tens of thousands of fans crammed the narrow streets to watch the first run through a duel lane, mixed surface super special stage at Leon Race Track.
Benito Guerra, Jr. uses K&N Air Filters
Corona Rally Mexico is part of FIA World Rally
Benito Guerra Jr. holds the title of youngest Mexican Rally Champion in the World. He drove a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 8 equipped with K&N Engineering Air Filters.
“We were having a great rally and at the end of the day I was in the top 10 of the production class,” said Guerra. “At the end of the second day my suspension broke and I lost a wheel. I had to restart the next day but my penalties hurt our times. On day three we retired with a broken gearbox. The one thing we don’t have to worry about is our K&N Air Filters. They don’t fail while racing, ever.”
France’s Sebastien Loeb took first place in his new Citroen C4WRC, ahead of Marcus Gronholm and Mikko Hirvonen.
The season is far from over for Guerra. His next rally will take place in Argentina on May 3rd, 4th, 5th and 6th.
