  • Craig at it again SS8

    The incredible run continues as Craig makes it 7 fastest times from 8. LOST for words...
  • Rain on SS8

    The weather conditions have deteriorated as it's now raining on SS8 and reports from the top WRC crews are the grip levels is not as good on the rerun.

    The Academy crew are due to start the stage within the next 15 minutes
  • Afternoon loop here we go

    A little different with the afternoon loop as the crews tackle Dyfi West 2 as SS8, then the short 6.72km's of Dyfi East 2 as SS9.

    The sting in the tail today comes with the final two stages of the day. The penultimate test is the 19.72 km's of Gartheiniog 2 and Friday draws to a close with Dyfnant 2 at 21.34km's
  • Incredible morning

    Irish and Waterford Rally driver Craig Breen has had an incredible morning on World Rally Great Britain, racking up a complete set of 4 fastest stage time over the morning loop of 4 stages.

    Craig said, "I'm very please with the way the morning has gone. I have only one option here this weekend and that's to go all out for the win and secure as many fastest stage times as possible. With the current standing in the rally, Egon Kaur is in third place, so I need to win the event and score 11 fastest stage times to take the championship but its going well so far, we still have a long way to go."  
  • Breen ShowS class SS6

    Fastest again on SS 6, O my God....
  • Fastest again SS5

    The Breen Steamroller continues on SS5 with another fastest stage time. On this one Craig was 5.7 up on Egon in 2nd place.
  • SS 4

    With all the times in for the opening Friday stage Craig racks up another fastest stage time. The gap between him and Alastair Fisher remains that same however as the two set the exact same time over the stage.

    Championship leader Egon Kaur finished third on the stage and moved into third overall. This is important if the top three were to finish the rally in this order. Craig would score 25 points for the win, Alastair would pick up 18 for second and Egon 15 for third.

    This would leave Craig requiring 11 stage wins to take the title.

    Still a long way to go
  • Battle Rages on SS4

    After the opening split time Craig pulled ahead of Egon and the only driver that could live with the Waterford driver was Alastair Fisher. They both record the same time of 13:19.4 , with Kaur +12.9sec over the stage.

    Craig and Egon live on SS4, Kaur up by .3 sec @ split 1
