2021 RallyRACC Catalunya - Rally de España - Breaking News

Thierry Neuville stormed to his second FIA World Rally Championship victory of the season with a commanding success at RallyRACC - Rally de España on Sunday afternoon.

The Belgian took control of the penultimate round with eight straight fastest times in his Hyundai i20 across the middle of the three-day asphalt rally to secure his second consecutive Spain victory by 24.1 sec.

Second place for Elfyn Evans in a Toyota Yaris means the fight for the drivers’ title goes to a final round decider in Italy next month. The Welshman headed Dani Sordo’s i20 by 11.2sec and trails team-mate Sébastien Ogier by 17 points. A maximum 30 are still available.

Sordo won the Wolf Power Stage to claim five bonus points. Neuville scored four points in second with Evans taking three in third. Ogier secured two points in fourth with Kalle Rovanperä netting the final point in fifth in another Yaris.
