2018 Rallye Deutschland – Part 2

Elfyn Evans and Daniel Barritt had the pace to challenge for a podium at this weekend’s Rallye Deutschland, but were cruelly denied by the smallest of mistakes.

Overcoming their later running order through the opening day of competition, the British pairing were locked in an intense battle for the podium and were amongst the favourites to take home the silverware.

Then, on the first pass of Römerstrasse (SS11), they were caught out by some gravel and ran wide into a field. It was a mistake that would so often go unpunished, but the luckless Brits encountered a concrete block concealed in the undergrowth which damaged the suspension.

We had a positive first day and, considering our road position, I think we did a pretty good job. But unfortunately Saturday just didn’t go our way at all. We lost a bit of time on the opening stage (SS8), had a spin in the third one (SS10) and then a trip into the field in the fourth (SS11) which ended in retirement. It certainly wasn’t the result we came here for, so now we just have to look forward to the next one.
