Breen, showed what he was capable of on the Corsican asphalt as the Irishman finished the Tour de Corse in fifth.

Breen said “This week has been pretty intense and tough, but we’re obviously delighted to finish in the top five at the Tour de Corse.

“Everything went really well and we have got a bit more experience under our belt, both in a World Rally Car and at what is undoubtedly the most difficult tarmac rally.

“Fifth overall is very much in line with the target we had set ourselves before the start. And we’ve also improved with every kilometre and set some really good times. I’d like to thank everyone who has made it possible for me to compete here and who have supported me throughout this rally!”
