2018 Rally de España – Part 2

Elfyn Evans and Daniel Barritt were determined to bring home the silverware this weekend and did so by securing their second podium of the year at RallyRACC Catalunya – Rally de España.

The British pairing were fighting at the sharp end on both gravel and asphalt and were part of an intense six-way battle for the win going into the final day of competition.

Embarking on the final four stages, Evans and Barritt were just 1.8 seconds adrift of the podium, and proved themselves great team players once again – taking the final podium place from Ogier’s main championship rival by just 0.5 seconds through the Power Stage!

The first day was a pretty strong day for us but I was disappointed to have given so much time away on that last stage – I would have preferred not to have done that! The second day was another challenging but rewarding day. The conditions made for some fairly tricky stages, but we delivered a clean and tidy drive and were in a good position going into the final day. It was so close out there and it really was anyone’s for the taking.

We came here to secure a good result and that’s what we got. The speed has been up there for the past few rallies now, but for various reasons we’ve come away empty handed. It’s good to finally see that speed rewarded and to show that we had the pace on both surfaces here in Spain.
