2016 WRC: Mikkelsen signs off with Australia victory


Norwegian Andreas Mikkelsen ended his Volkswagen spell by winning the Kennards Hire Rally Australia.

He repelled a fierce attack from team-mate and world champion Sébastien Ogier, who spun away his victory chances on the dusty Bucca speed test early this morning. Mikkelsen achieved his third career win by 14.9sec over his Polo R colleague.

It wasn’t enough to secure the Norwegian the runner-up position in the drivers’ standings. Third place for Thierry Neuville in this closing round, a further 57.7sec behind in a Hyundai i20, clinched second in the points for the Belgian behind the already-crowned Ogier.

Fired up Mikkelsen leads in Australia


Andreas Mikkelsen led Kennards Hire Rally Australia on Friday night after heading the leaderboard for most of a hot and dusty day in New South Wales.

Spurred on by the knowledge that he must win this final round of the FIA World Rally Championship to stand a realistic chance of securing the runners-up spot, Mikkelsen was 15.4sec ahead of Volkswagen Polo R team-mate Sébastien Ogier.

The Norwegian was quickly out of the blocks to win five of the opening six speed tests south of Coffs Harbour. He was 14.2sec clear at mid-leg service and eked out a few extra tenths when the roads were driven again.

2016 WRC: Sebastien Ogier led from start to finish to triumph at the Dayinsure Wales Rally GB


Sébastien Ogier led from start to finish to triumph at the Dayinsure Wales Rally GB.

The Frenchman withstood final day pressure from Ott Tänak to win the penultimate round of the FIA World Rally Championship by 10.2sec and secure the manufacturers’ title for Volkswagen.

Ogier clinched a fourth consecutive drivers’ crown at the previous round in Spain.

Thierry Neuville finished third in a Hyundai i20, a further 1min 25.2sec behind. His fourth consecutive podium gives him a 14-point advantage over Andreas Mikkelsen in their fight for the runners-up spot heading into next month’s finale in Australia.

2016 WRC: Sebastien Ogier retained the Dayinsure Wales Rally GB lead from Estonian Ott Tanak on Saturday


Sébastien Ogier retained the Dayinsure Wales Rally GB lead from Estonian Ott Tänak on Saturday.

The Frenchman, who sealed his fourth consecutive world title in Spain earlier this month, completed the second and penultimate leg with a 33.8 sec advantage over Tänak. Thierry Neuville was third, a further minute adrift in a Hyundai i20.

Although conditions were better than yesterday, fog and greasy dirt roads in mid-Wales ensured driving was far from simple. But Ogier, who has led since the start in his Volkswagen Polo R, kept Estonian Tänak at bay during eight speed tests covering 99.91km.

Tänak won four of the first six special stages in his Ford Fiesta RS to cut the Frenchman’s lead from 37.3sec to 24.8sec. But his hopes were dashed when Ogier regained a large chunk of time in the dank and muddy penultimate test at Aberhirnant.

Ogier seizes early Dayinsure Wales Rally GB lead


Sébastien Ogier mastered fog and mud to lead the Dayinsure Wales Rally GB from Estonia's Ott Tänak on Friday.

The Frenchman headed Tänak by 37.3sec despite a transmission problem near the end of the final mid-Wales speed test, which restricted the performance of his Volkswagen Polo R.

Ogier suspected a broken driveshaft, the same issue that also delayed team-mates Jari-Matti Latvala and Andreas Mikkelsen, who both lost huge chunks of time as they limped along the muddy gravel forest roads.

"I think the driveshaft is broken so I’m really happy the day is over," said Ogier at the finish of the final speed test in Dyfnant Forest. "It’s the front shaft. Jari-Matti and Andreas were unlucky too, but it’s something we need to work on because three cars with the same issue on the same day hasn’t happened before."

Friends braced for tough Wales Rally GB battle


Championship rivals Andreas Mikkelsen and Thierry Neuville will put their friendship to one side when they lock horns at this week’s Dayinsure Wales Rally GB, both determined to end each other’s hopes of finishing as runner-up in the 2016 WRC drivers’ points standings.

With Sébastien Ogier winning his fourth world title in a row in Spain earlier this month, the focus in Wales will be on a fierce five-way battle to finish closest to the dominant Frenchman.

Mikkelsen and Neuville, who live close to each other and train together in Monaco, are both locked on 127 points with only Rally GB and Kennards Hire Rally Australia left to contest this season.

Neuville will take Thursday night’s ceremonial start in Colwyn Bay in the best form. The Belgian guided his Hyundai i20 WRC to third place at the recent RallyRACC Catalunya - Rally de España, an event where Mikkelsen crashed his Polo R WRC as he tried to defend the final podium place from his rival.

Focused Ogier amongst rally greats


Behind the scenes with newly crowned four-time champion Sébastien Ogier.

Martin Hassenpflug stood in front of Sébastien Ogier’s Volkswagen Polo R WRC. He’s the only man who can stop the now four-time World Rally Champion.

It’s his job. Hassenpflug is the Frenchman’s car controller; when Ogier arrives in service, it’s him who guides him and his number one machine to a halt.

That happens hundreds of times in a season, but this time - at the title-clinching finish of the Rally of Spain in Salou - it’s just that bit more special.

2016 WRC: Ogier on brink of fourth title


Frenchman overhauls Sordo in Spanish duel.

Sébastien Ogier all but secured his fourth consecutive FIA World Rally Championship title after passing Dani Sordo to lead RallyRACC Catalunya - Rally de España on Saturday.

Andreas Mikkelsen, second in the series, crashed this afternoon to leave Ogier with one hand on the crown. Only Thierry Neuville can deprive him but the Belgian, third in the rally, must claim maximum points and Ogier fail to score for the Frenchman to be denied.

2016 WRC: Sordo storms into Spain lead


Ogier stays on course for fourth title.

Dani Sordo mastered treacherous conditions to lead RallyRACC Catalunya - Rally de España on Friday night and set up hopes of a home victory for the first time in 21 years.

Torrential rain turned gravel tracks in the hills above the Costa Daurada into a mudbath, with aquaplaning a constant threat in water-filled ruts. But Sordo’s storming afternoon performance earned the Hyundai i20 pilot a 17.0sec lead over Sébastien Ogier.

Championship leader Ogier, bidding to seal a fourth consecutive world title here, and Thierry Neuville each led during the morning’s three speed tests. Sordo was sublime when they were repeated, winning two and placing second in the other to climb from fourth to first.

"This is a dream for me," said Sordo, hoping to become the first Spaniard to win on home ground since Carlos Sainz in 1995. "I have to say thanks to the team for a great job with the car. Tomorrow we need to continue and see what we can do. Two long days to go, but today was unbelievable."

Ogier endured the worst of the slimy roads from first in the start order and the Frenchman admitted his priority in the early afternoon stages was simply surviving in his Volkswagen Polo R.

Team-mate Andreas Mikkelsen completed the podium places, 18.1sec behind Ogier. The Norwegian overcame brake problems late in the day and twice slowed on stages when mistakenly believing he had a puncture.
