Thrilling win in Argentina!

Day 3: Thierry and Nicolas make it two in a row

We can always rely on Rally Argentina to create a thrilling finale and this year’s event certainly did not disappoint! In scenes reminiscent of last season’s event when Hayden and John claimed a stunning victory, the outcome of this year’s rally went right down to the Power Stage.

Our Belgians Thierry and Nicolas had been gaining on rally leader Elfyn Evans since Saturday morning. They moved to within 0.6-seconds after a sensational drive through Mina Clavero – Giulio Cesare, the penultimate stage of the rally. The scene was set for the ultimate showdown.

Vying for glory

Two crews went head-to-head for glory in the El Condor Power Stage – and it was our #5 crew who came out on top by a fraction. Just 0.7 seconds split the top two. It was the third closest finish to the WRC event in history!

“I have never had such a nerve-wracking final few minutes of a rally in my career,” said an overwhelmed Thierry at stage-end. “It’s an amazing result and I’d like to say thanks to the whole team for everything they’ve done this weekend. Congratulations to Elfyn, who put up an incredible fight.”
