Reigning WRC Champ Sebastien Ogier and Co-Driver Julien Ingrassia have been keeping quite busy during the nearly month-and-a-half break between Rally Mexico and Rally Argentina.  Most recently, the pair were spotted in the hills of Spain to test new tarmac rubber from Michelin, the official tire partner of the World Rally Championship.  From the looks of things, they are quite happy with the new compound.


As you can see from the dark rubber tracks in the roughly four-minute video above, Ogier put in a solid day of testing on the new Michelins and look to be extremely quick.  The pair will be able to get a bit more familiar with the new rubber before it is used in competition later this year.

Rally Argentina gets underway in just nine days.
