Two years ago, Craig Breen was in­ter­view­ing the driv­ers sit­ting where he’ll be sit­ting now. Two years ago, Breen’s hopes and as­pi­ra­tions of mak­ing that fi­nal push were in­trin­si­cally linked to, how best to put this, a trou­ble­some Peu­geot 208 T16. Much as that car frus­trated the heck out of him and Scott Martin, it got them a foot in an­other door on the other side of Paris. Since swap­ping blue for red over­alls, Breen’s shown just how com­fort­able he is at ral­ly­ing’s high­est level. The only toughie for him in Wales will be the lack of ex­pe­ri­ence with the car and the ab­sence of a pre-event test to dial him­self in. Nei­ther mat­ters. He’s here on merit and and he’s here to stay. En­joy it.
