Motor Sport News - - Rally News -

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.”
