Meeke praises Pryce’s first world championship win
Kris Meeke has praised Drive DMACK Fiesta Trophy winner Osian Pryce on his debut win in the World Rally Championship in Portugal last week.
The Rally of Portugal winner said Pryce will take confidence from his maiden success in the world championship in the same way Meeke did with his JWRC wins.
“To come here, first rally in the year and his first time in the car and win it on an event that’s been so tough on those little cars is special,” said Meeke. “This is another level. He’ll take so much away from this result and it’s great to have two British winners in Portugal.”
Pryce was taken aback by Meeke’s comments, saying: “It’s incredible to have praise from the guy who won the rally. Kris is a real inspiration, seeing the way he’s bounced back and never given up is amazing, he’s an example to us all.”
