Elfyn Evans and Daniel Barritt secured their maiden win in style last weekend. Claiming nine stage victories, the pairing dominated their home event and were in a class of their own through the tricky conditions.

As the first British crew to win the event since Richard Burns and Robert Reid in 2000, Evans is also the very first Welsh driver to win the British round of the FIA World Rally Championship.

“I’m feeling pretty good, and just about managed to keep the tears away at the podium”, Elfyn Evans said.

“It’s been a really long and difficult weekend, so this one feels good and it was made all the more special when you combine it with everything the team has achieved today.”

“Already after Shakedown, we knew if the conditions played into our hands then the speed was there to challenge for the victory. As the weekend went on, I felt that it was always in my reach, but this is an event you can never predict. A clean run with no punctures, spins or mistakes is very difficult. It’s all about finding the right balance and I think that’s what we managed to achieve this weekend.”

“I’m definitely hungry for more wins now, so let’s wait and see what next year has in store. Now that I have felt this feeling, it’s one that I would like to repeat!”
