KRIS MEEKE Nationality: Age: Co-driver: Car number: Team:
Five years ago, Deeside roasted in a new record for the hottest October day ever. It was 28.2 degrees. Admittedly, it was a little bit closer to September than November, but it still shows what this place can be like. We need 28 degrees this week. On top of that, we could do with a Sirocco wind coming directly from the Sahara to Sweet Lamb, blasting any dampness to oblivion. Hot, dry conditions and Meeke will deliver Britain’s first home driver win in 16 years. Anything less and it might be tricky. But one thing’s for sure: Meeke will be pushing as hard as he dares to deliver the dream being dreamed by British rally fans up and down the land.
