Elfyn salvages valuable points in Finland
Elfyn Evans and Daniel Barritt had been hoping to challenge for another podium at this weekend’s Rally Finland, but it wasn’t to be.
Delivering a clean and tidy drive behind the wheel of their Fiesta, the Brits were unable to find the same feeling they’d enjoyed this time last year.
Seventh place was not the target, but the pairing will look to come back stronger at Rallye Deutschland.
It’s not been a terrible weekend driving wise and I don’t think anyone can say that they don’t enjoy driving these stages, but for sure seventh place wasn’t the result we wanted.
Team Principal, Malcolm Wilson OBE, said:
We’ve not had the speed we wanted this weekend, but we have achieved our main objective and reduced the gap in all three championships. It’s frustrating not to have been in the fight at the front, but we have to keep the bigger picture in mind and it’s been a positive event in that respect. Heading back to asphalt at Rallye Deutschland the goal will be to see the gaps further reduced.
