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.
