2018 Rally Turkey – Part 2

Elfyn Evans and Daniel Barritt had to endure their fair share of bad luck at Rally Turkey, but the luckless Brits fought back admirably and displayed incredible team spirit throughout the entire weekend.

When Sébastien Ogier and Julien Ingrassia were stopped on the side of the road with a broken wishbone, Evans and Barritt came to their aid with advice and encouragement.

The Welshman is one of the most skilled technicians in the service park, and when all available mechanics were needed to work on Ogier’s car, he and Barritt even serviced their own – Evans helping to change the wishbone and his co-driver adjusting the ride height.

Recovering from Friday’s retirement, the pairing showed great speed and had climbed back up to seventh place overall before demonstrating their dedication to the team once again.

Checking into the penultimate stage five minutes early, they incurred a five minute penalty to give team mate Ogier an additional championship point that could prove vital at the end of the season.

Elfyn said:

It was a frustrating Friday with a lot of different issues which eventually resulted in retirement when striking a rock on the line which couldn’t be avoided. We had a pretty solid day on Saturday and were able to show good pace whilst keeping out of trouble. But today we had to drop time and assist Sébastien with his championship defence.
