Cruel Luck Continues for Elfyn in Germany

Elfyn Evans Rally Germany 2018
August 20th, 2018

Elfyn Evans and Daniel Barritt had the pace to challenge for a podium at this weekend’s Rallye Deutschland, but were cruelly denied by the smallest of mistakes.

Overcoming their later running order through the opening day of competition, the British pairing were locked in an intense battle for the podium and were amongst the favourites to take home the silverware.

Then, on the first pass of Römerstrasse (SS11), they were caught out by some gravel and ran wide into a field. It was a mistake that would so often go unpunished, but the luckless Brits encountered a concrete block concealed in the undergrowth which damaged the suspension.

Elfyn said:

“We had a positive first day and, considering our road position, i think we did a pretty good job. But unfortunately Saturday just didn’t go our way at all. We lost a bit of time on the opening stage (SS8), had a spin in the third one (SS10) and then a trip into the field in the fourth (SS11) which ended in retirement. It certainly wasn’t the result we came here for, so now we just have to look forward to the next one.”

Team Principal, Malcolm Wilson OBE, said:

“It’s been a frustrating weekend for the team as we had the performance to deliver a lot more. Luck has not been on our side here in Germany, but the season is not over yet and anything can happen with four events left to contest.

Elfyn was unlucky this weekend – going off at the same place as Craig (Breen) in an incident which would ordinarily have gone unpunished. Unfortunately, that wasn’t the case for Elfyn and he was denied an opportunity to fight for the podium.”
