RIP Craig Breen - Hyundai WRC Rally Driver

An amazing Irish World Rally Championship Driver from Waterford...very sad indeed and sincerest condolences to his family, friends and many fans!!
 
Still finding it hard to believe.

This season it seems the car somehow suits him and not heard him moaning like power stage champion Neuville or Tanak last season. Based on his performance in Sweden, I reckon he has the chance to challenge for wins or gain greater points than Lappi/ Sordo, and give Ford and Toyota more of a kicking.

With him gone, I think the championship is already won by Toyota, based on the fact that there will only be one i20 scoring points in most of the rallies ( with the other i20s crashing/ retiring).
 
Rally driving must be more dangerous than F1 these days, cannot get rid of stationary objects on the course.

We have lost a few over the years from Possum Borne to Rodger Freeth.
