WRC Rally Estonia outing for Breen and Nagle

World Rally Championship

By Sean Moriarty

Craig Breen and Paul Nagle will return to the World Rally Championship for the first time since February when they contest September’s Rally Estonia.

The Kerry/ Waterford pairing will form part of a three-car team for Hyundai Motorsport which includes Ott Tänak and Thierry Neuville.

The WRC’s restart event is a new addition to the series after several other rallies were cancelled as a result of the pandemic.

Breen and Nagle’s last WRC outing was on Rally Sweden in February where they finished seventh for the Korean manufacturer. They were due to contest Rally Finland – which should have taken place last weekend – but that event got cancelled and Estonia has been drafted in as a replacement event.

Breen and Nagle tackled Rally Estonia last year when it was run as an official WRC promotional event. They finished fifth in what was their first event with the team and their experience of the 2019 event should stand to them in September.
