Craig Breen wins in Ireland, a country that cries out for the WRC


Craig Breen is a fast driver and compliant, two qualities that have been evident in their rally house. The irish pilot did not fail in its return to the ERC and in the stretches that saw him grow to become to win. Craig Breen has won the Circuit of Ireland, second test round of the European Rally, and the scenario in which you have added two consecutive wins, doing good so their little ‘down’ from the World. At the wheel of the Citroën DS3 R5 of DGM Sport, Breen has not failed to stake of Citroën Racing, the team itself and the promoter to the test.

The victory of Craig Breen has been the less placid, in large measure, by the errors of its rivals. Alexey Lukyanuk was unable to go after suffering an accident during the test, while Elfyn Evans had to leave during the first day with engine problems, something that has not prevented to exhibit the same beat crushing which has been shown in WRC2 during the second day, until its permanent abandonment. Low that however should not overshadow the huge list of entries of which has enjoyed the Circuit of Ireland, with 38 vehicles R5.

The support of the local authorities and the Office of passenger Cars in Northern Ireland, this high enrollment and the success that it is the Circuit of Ireland year after year in the ERC has led the organisers of the test to touch in the door of the promoter of the WRC. The great handicap of the test is the dispute of a rally of the World in Wales, while in favor of the Circuit of Ireland is its long history (dating from 1931), a long-term commitment to the championship and, above all, your condition of tarmac-based rally with an excellent reputation.
