WRC crowns rally driver Armstrong eSports world champion


Rally driver Jon Armstrong switched his in-car skills to a virtual gaming rig to win the coveted eSports WRC world title in Germany last weekend.

The 23-year-old Ulsterman, who drove in the WRC in 2017, recovered from a crash to secure the crown in a thrilling final during the WRC’s ADAC Rallye Deutschland round.

Armstrong’s success came just 12 months after being inspired to try WRC 7, the official game of the FIA World Rally Championship, after watching live coverage of the 2017 eSports final.

2018 WRC: Citroen Racing WRT Terminates Participation of Kris Meeke and Paul Nagle


Due to an excessively high number of crashes, some of which were particularly heavy and could have had serious consequences with regard to the crew’s safety, and given that the risks involved were unjustified by the sporting stakes at play, Citroën Racing WRT has decided to terminate the participation of Kris Meeke and Paul Nagle in the 2018 WRC.

The decision becomes effective from the 2018 Rally Italia Sardegna and we will shortly be announcing the team’s line-up of crews for the remainder of the 2018 season. The entries of C3 WRCs for Craig Breen / Scott Martin and Mads Ostberg /Torstein Eriksen still stand for Sardinia.

Suninen soars to new heights in Portugal after scrapping F1 dream


Young Finn seals first ever podium to continue remarkable World Rally rise.

Teemu Suninen was born into racing. Not rallying. With Kimi Raikkonen as his hero, he was set on emulating Finland’s last Formula 1 world champion. Then he ran out of money.

Putting his multiple karting trophies aside, he entered a competition to find a rally driver, won it and hasn’t looked back since.

2018 WRC: Portugal victory sees Neuville regain championship lead from Ogier


Neuville stays out of trouble on the final day to land second win of the season.

Thierry Neuville won Vodafone Rally de Portugal on Sunday afternoon to swing the FIA World Rally Championship pendulum firmly in his favour.

Victory at the gruelling four-day dirt road encounter promoted Neuville to the top of the standings as the series approaches its midpoint. After starting 10 points behind reigning champion Sébastien Ogier, the Belgian leaves Portugal with a 19-point advantage.

Neuville steered his Hyundai i20 away from trouble during a weekend of attrition that sidelined many frontrunners to win by 40.0sec from Elfyn Evans’ Ford Fiesta.

Fellow title challengers Ogier and Ott Tänak ended pointless after falling foul of Friday’s rock-strewn speed tests and Neuville pressed home his advantage by claiming four extra bonus points in the final Power Stage.

2018 WRC: Neuville doubles lead at Rally de Portugal to boost title hopes


Belgian gives world title hopes a major boost at Vodafone Rally de Portugal.

Thierry Neuville starts tomorrow’s short finale with a 39.8sec advantage in his Hyundai i20, and victory would propel him back to the head of the FIA World Rally Championship for the first time since February.

Conditions were more benign than yesterday when rock-strewn dirt roads caused carnage among the frontrunners, and the Belgian focused on the double pass through the 37.60km Amarante speed test, the longest of this sixth round of the series.

2018 WRC: Thierry Neuville leads after a crazy opening day at Rally de Portugal


Chaotic opening leg destroys hopes of many Vodafone Rally de Portugal frontrunners.

The lead changed hands on six occasions on rock-strewn dirt roads near the Spanish border before the Belgian Thierry Neuville took a 17.7sec advantage in his Hyundai i20 over Elfyn Evans. Dani Sordo was a further 6.6sec adrift in third.

WRC leader Sébastien Ogier, previous round winner Ott Tänak, Toyota Yaris team-mate Jari-Matti Latvala and Hyundai duo Andreas Mikkelsen and Hayden Paddon were all sidelined as the gruelling roads took a heavy toll.

2018 WRC: Argentina hero Ott Tanak targets dominant win on Portugal grave


The Estonian is the man to beat and is confident of continuing his fine form.

Ott Tänak is the man to fear at Vodafone Rally de Portugal (17 - 20 May) following his stunning victory in Argentina last month.

Tänak dominated in south America in a way nobody has previously managed in new-era World Rally Cars, establishing himself at the forefront of the challengers to defending WRC champion Sébastien Ogier.

Nobody could challenge the Toyota Gazoo Racing driver as he reeled off a remarkable run of 10 fastest times in 12 special stages to charge to the top after an early mistake, and the 30-year-old Estonian is understandably bubbling with confidence.

One million fans no problem for ex-rally star Mouton in Argentina


FIA's WRC Safety Delegate reveals the logistics behind staging popular event.

Crowd control is vital at any sporting event, but keeping just over 60,000 football fans smiling inside River Plate’s Estadio Antonio Vespucio Libert, home of Buenos Aires club River Plate, pales into insignificance in comparison to Michele Mouton’s job.

Mouton made her name as the world’s fastest lady and she remains the only female winner of a World Rally Championship round. She didn’t stop at one, either, she won four and came within a whisker of the 1982 title.

Estonian seals first WRC season win as Neuville cuts title lead to Ogier.

A dominant Ott Tänak scored his third WRC victory, and his first for Toyota Gazoo Racing this season, on Sunday afternoon at YPF Rally Argentina.

After dictating the opening two legs, he eased through the classic El Condor and Giulio Cesare speed tests in the rock-strewn Traslasierra mountains to win this fifth round of the FIA World Rally Championship by 37.7sec.

Neuville moves into second as Estonian closes on first WRC victory of season.

Ott Tänak was king of the pampas for a second day at YPF Rally Argentina as he stretched his lead in this fifth round of the FIA World Rally Championship.

He demoralised the opposition to win five of the seven speed tests in the Los Gigantes mountain region to widen his advantage to 46.5sec with Sunday’s short final leg remaining.
