Wales Rally GB dog ght hit right notes

There was heart­break for Toy­ota’s Ott Tanak, but that set up an epic bat­tle

Motor Sport News - - Have your say -

Se­bastien Ogier was thrilled to land his fourth vic­tory of the 2018 World Rally Cham­pi­onship. As he lifted the sil­ver­ware atop his M-sport Ford Fi­esta, he knew he had earned it.

While Ott Tanak was un­lucky to lose out with me­chan­i­cal trou­ble on his works Toy­ota Yaris, what was left was a huge bat­tle be­tween the rest of the cat­e­gory’s lead­ing stars. Just frac­tions of a sec­ond separated them through­out the event, and it went to high­light just how fierce the com­pe­ti­tion is this sea­son and who­ever claims the cham­pi­onship will thor­oughly de­serve it.

The only thing miss­ing was a Bri­ton at the very front of the field – but we will have one next sea­son. The news that North­ern Ir­ish­man Kris Meeke has been signed by Toy­ota is some­thing which will not only res­cue his ca­reer, but could give the WRC the shot in the arm it needs to re­gain some in­ter­est in the na­tional press in this coun­try. We can only hope. Matt James, Ed­i­tor (Twit­ter: @Mat­tjm­news)
