Breen dominates Rally di Alba – Hyundai’s Italian Job

Breen dominates Rally di Alba

Running with BRC Racing Team Craig Breen led Rally di Alba, throughout, winning five of the nine stages.

He was joined on the podium by Finn Jari Huttunen and his fellow WRC driver Dani Sordo, in the second of the cars fielded by the BRC squad for the weekend.

Breen was immediately at ease on the Albanian roads and was widely deserving of the victory ahead  of his teammate Huttunen.

Third place went to Spaniard Dani Sordo, also in an official Hyundai i20 R5.

The top four was completed by another i20 R5 crew, sealing the best-ever rallying result for Hyundai customers, as Luca Rossetti brought his Friulmotor-run entry home narrowly missing the podium.

Hyundai Motorsport Customer Racing Drivers Ole-Christian Veiby and Grégoire Munster finished eighth and ninth – putting a total of six i20 R5 in the top ten to end a weekend which saw the largest Hyundai entry ever for a rally.
