Motor Sport News - - Front Page - By David Evans Full story p2-3

World Rally Cham­pi­onship star Kris Meeke says he is in the best place yet to fight for vic­tory on Wales Rally GB.

The Citroen ace has only taken part in five events this sea­son and has scored wins in Por­tu­gal and Fin­land. He heads to this week’s event con­fi­dent that his DS 3 can take the fight to four-time world cham­pion Se­bastien Ogier and Volk­swa­gen.

“It’s the home rally,” Meeke said. “Of course you want to win it. There’s spe­cial mo­ti­va­tion on this event, a spe­cial feel­ing.”

The rally starts with a shake­down on Thurs­day and the first stage is My­herin on Fri­day morn­ing.
