Evans ends 2016 WRC2 campaign with Corsica win


Elfyn Evans finished the 2016 WRC2 season for M-Sport on a high with a win at the 2016 Tour de Corse – Rallye de France.

Evans, who has been exceptional throughout the three days on his seventh and final WRC2 appearance of the year to claim his third and final win of the 2016 WRC2 campaign.

The Welshman must wait if results come his way for the final rally of the season on his ‘home’ rally in Wales for Wales Rally GB can be crowned the 2016 WRC2 Champion.

Evans said “Overall it has been a good weekend for us. We started off really strongly and were able to amass quite a big lead after the first stage. We stretched that lead yesterday afternoon and then it was just a case of managing everything and bringing it home.

“We’ve done all we can this weekend and kept our championship challenge alive, but now it is very much a case of wait and see.

“We had a very good start to the season – with wins in Monte-Carlo and Sweden – but luck wasn’t on our side during the mid-season. For various reasons we weren’t able to challenge for more wins, but I think we’ve proved that we had the speed to do that.

“As I say, we’ve done all that we can and we’ll just have to wait and see what the others can do over the remainder of the season.”
