Well done Kris

Motor Sport News - - Sporting Scene -

The late great Colin Mcrae re­alised the po­ten­tial of Kris Meeke very early on in his ca­reer. Per­haps the Scots­man could see a lit­tle of him­self in Meeke.

Like Mcrae, Meeke lets his driv­ing do the talk­ing and maybe Volk­swa­gen, whose bosses re­cently crit­i­cised him for “tak­ing points” from po­ten­tial world-class drivers will now see that he is now in that elite class af­ter his vic­tory in Fin­land.

What’s more, he is to­tally ca­pa­ble of chal­leng­ing for the drivers’ cham­pi­onship.

That might not be this year but if he can main­tain the cur­rent form then maybe next year. Let’s hope so.

Congratulations to Kris Meeke and co-driver Paul Na­gle on their vic­tory and also to Craig Breen for his third placed re­sult.

I’m sure John Hor­ton, who helped run the Rally Fin­land me­dia ser­vice and sadly passed away ear­lier this year, would have been very proud of these guys and their re­sults. Nick Nieroda Via email
