Fourth place finish for Breen on Wales Rally GB

Tuesday, October 09, 2018
Craig Breen and Scott Martin produced a battling final day performance to clinch a richly deserved fourth place on the Dayinsure Wales Rally GB.

With just 13.5s between the top four, the final leg promised to be very hotly contested, especially as the day began with a 10.06km stage, a really narrow, technical and muddy test…

In conditions like these, it's never easy to really go for it but Craig Breen, starting the day in sixth position, 1.7s behind the third-placed driver, decided to be bold. After a good opening stage, he was unfortunately caught out by the slippery conditions on the next speed test (SS20) and made a small mistake. He nonetheless managed to hang onto fourth position until the end of the event, securing a fine result for Citroën Total Abu Dhabi WRT in a C3 WRC that once again proved to be fast and reliable.

At the finish Breen said: "I'm pleased with my weekend, I really gave it everything this morning but the other guys were just faster than us. It was important to get a result for the team. I'm now going to try and build on it and keep the momentum going at the last couple of rallies so we can finish the season as strongly as possible. And given that I have a bit of preference for tarmac, I'm already really looking forward to Spain"
