Wales all set for an epic three-way title tussle

Te dramatic battle for this year’s FIA World Rally Championship has reached fever pitch as the series heads for a spectacular showdown in the legendary Welsh forests. With Estonian ace Ott Tänak scoring back-to-back wins in Finland and Germany, a titanic three-way tussle is in prospect when the WRC arrives on these shores for Dayinsure Wales Rally GB (4-7 October). Tanks to his two stirring victories, the fast-finishing Tänak has set up a rousing finale to the 2018 WRC, closing to within 36 points of series leader Tierry Neuville and 13 of second- placed Sébastien Ogier with four rounds remaining. Hostilities are resumed next month in Turkey before the teams come to Wales. Spain and Australia then host the final two showdowns of this fiercely-fought campaign.

Underlining the intensity of the title race, Neuville, Ogier and Tänak each have racked up three wins and, with 120 points still on offer, all four remaining rounds are going to prove pivotal in the destination of the coveted crown.
