Elfyn Evans shares the lead of the FIA World Rally Championship tonight, after becoming the first British driver to win Rally Sweden. Before today, only six nationalities had won the traditional winter round of the series, with 64 victories out of 70 events going to either Swedish or Finnish drivers. Colin McRae came close by finishing second in 1992, but in a brilliant performance Evans led this year’s event from start to finish to leave Sweden tied at the top of the drivers’ standings with Thierry Neuville.
Cardiff City fans have been told they will soon be cheering Kieffer Moore again – even though his two goals slowed the Bluebirds’ promotion push. Moore scored twice for Wigan in their 2-2 draw at the Cardiff City Stadium, where the 6ft 7in Wales striker has yet to find the net for his adopted country. But the player who scored vital away goals for Ryan Giggs’ side on their way to successful qualification for the Euro 2020 finals, will soon have supporters in the capital cheering for him, according to Wigan manager Paul Cook.
Elfyn Evans is on the brink of joining an elite club of non-Scandinavian drivers to have won Rally Sweden, as he takes a 17.2 second lead into tomorrow shortened final day of the event. The Toyota driver, who has led the event from the start, set three more fastest stage times today to double his lead over reigning world champion Ott Tänak (Hyundai). Only a very short day tomorrow stands between Evans and his second win in the FIA World Rally Championship.
