Looking forward to another year in the WRC in Ogier - 2. Neuville - 3. Not long ago we thought it would be impossible, thanks to the team for the great efforts! We've achieved something special in these last two years. Latvala 2h 59m Toyota Gazoo Racing secures the Manufacturers' title by points to Hyundai's ! Latvala Here it is then, his first victory of the season and his first win since Rally Sweden in Such a great result for Jari-Matti Latvala after a really strong performance in a weekend where the Toyota Yarises were a step above everybody else.
Paddon Hayden hasn't put a foot wrong this weekend, the Kiwi has grabbed a great result this weekend - second overall and fastest of the Hyundais. He'll be happy with this season-ending result. The couple we've had in the last year we've taken from other people's problems.
Every year we've improved in Australia so if we're here next year then really we should take victory! He's third-fastest through the stage. Probably more downs, but we had an amazing day today. It is tough after such a long break to get back in the car. He crosses the line just 0. But I'm looking forward to new challenges.
I'm thankful for the team and their support, they've got such a big passion for rally. Hopefully Jari will come through and we'll win the manufacturers' title, that's what everyone deserves. Ogier Ogier completes the Power Stage with the fastest time - by 3. Safe to say he's absolutely delighted at stop control as he celebrates with Julien: I'm so proud of my team, you are the best! We had such an amazing time together. I just had a final push in this car! I can't wait to see the team again.
Evans Elfyn Evans is quick on this test, he's rapid through the splits and he's taken the fastest time on the stage by 6. Good hustle from him, after moving aside for Seb earlier. He's done a great job and I'm happy for the whole team, they've all worked really hard.
Hopefully more to come. Breen He completes the stage now, I love this thing so much, but I've been through hell and back to get here. Just need a few things to go the right way again.
He tries to get it going again and stalls before he finally moves off. Alberto Heller Alberto Heller crosses the flying finish and secures WRC 2 victory in just his second start in the category. Faultless weekend from the Chilean who kept his Fiesta R5 on the road when his rivals struggled. Serderidis Jourdan Serderidis finishes his rally now and completes a generally clean run on his second World Rally Championship start of the season. It has been a difficult week for me, but we've achieved a great result and I'm very happy.
Glenney The second of the Australian championship runners is Steve Glenney, he powers his Skoda Fabia R5 home to victory in their championship and he'll be 10th in the overall standings for good measure. It is a dream come true to be in the mix with the WRC competitors, we've been tweaking the set-up all weekend - the car's been a dream. Evans No not Elfyn, Eli. We've got two Australian runners through this test, and the first is Eli Evans. He completes the stage cleanly and he becomes the Australian rally champion!
Well done that man! He even does a couple of donuts as he reaches the end. And who can blame him, he's absolutely delighted: I tried everything to throw it away but I got through to the end!
Mikkelsen Andreas completes his rally, and indeed his season, as he crosses the flying finish in a time of 4m It would have been nice to change things around this weekend but I guess we'll have to wait until Monte Carlo.
I'm sure we'll start there in good spirits and come back strong. Congratulations also to Julien Ingrassia who secures his sixth co-drivers' title! Latvala 2h 55m Latvala Latvala lowers the fastest stage time again, he's 2. Bit of damage to the rear of his Yaris and he's getting out to have a look. I heard Ott has stopped, I'm very sorry for him. Paddon That promotes Hayden Paddon to second it would appear, he's 1. It's not over until the fat lady sings! I went off the road and into a tree.
To be honest I though like that was it, but after that I pushed to the absolute limit. More on that as we get it. It's not hampered him at all though, he's Even if I needed to push you can't enjoy it. Ogier Seb's lost a touch of time late on in this stage. I am just trying to go through and it so difficult, it is crazy.
Evans Elfyn's lost quite a bit of time on this stage, at the first split he was He's pulled some back towards the end of this Ah, this might explain his time loss - Dan Barritt is having to hold his door shut, how did it come open in the first place I wonder? Just a small impact and then couldn't reverse because the door was stuck against the tree.
Suninen Teemu Suninen reaches the end of the penultimate stage and he is Careful with the driving, just once I needed to reverse. We had nothing to lose anymore. In SS22, the conditions were really bad. We went wide, clipped a tree, damage our car and had to retire. Breen It really looks like they're skating on ice through this stage Craig is really picking his way through the gravel.
Helicopter shot shows his spoiler is hanging off and a bit of rear-right damage after his off earlier. What does he say to Colin Clark at stop control?
Well it had to happen some time, after such a controlled drive so far in Australia. He slides through a corner at slow speed and hits the bank, it delays him a bit but he keeps going. The notes say it is slippy and Craig is caught out on a medium-speed left. He slides off into the undergrowth as he slows for the bend.
It was a struggle to get going again but he eventually does. Breen We're wasting no time this afternoon, Craig Breen is onto the second run of Sapphire, the second driver to do so, after Jourdan Serderidis. Mikkelsen Andreas rounds off the WRC crews to complete this stage and he is Latvala Jari-Matti Latvala leads the rally and looks to be on course for his first win since Rally Sweden inthis is another clean stage from the Finn who sets the fastest time!
The first 3km was very slippery. It started to get better but there were some corners that were slippy. Paddon Hayden is sitting in quite a comfortable position at the moment, but these stages have been catching people so he can't rest on his laurels yet.
A more measured drive from the Kiwi sees him complete 9. Obviously not the best way to finish the year for Thierry but we've still got our job to do for the rest of the day.
He is just 1. The conditions are tricky. Lappi Seb is driving like his grandmother, but Esapekka is storming! He sweeps through in the fastest time of anyone - 5. How did he find this test? They're not the fastest through the stage - they've dropped I was driving the stage like my granny would do! Evans Everyone is treading carefully on this test in the tricky conditions. Elfyn reaches the end He tells Emyr Penlan: When I saw Thierry stopped I just backed off completely to be honest. Suninen Further up the stage, Suninen crosses the line 3.
Neuville The Belgian finds a wide spot and pulls the car in. He's out the car now. Such a shame for him after such a spirited fight this morning. Neuville The on-board shot shows a flashing blue light on the dashboard of Neuville's Hyundai after he hits something a second time!
He's crawling through the stage now, what exactly has he done to that i20? Neuville Oh no Thierry! He's giving it everything he can on this stage but spins at the 1km mark after hitting a bank.
He points the i20 back in the right direction and continues on. Suninen Teemu is slipping and sliding his way through the stage and at the first split - at the 5.
Serderidis He's the first car out on the stages, scouting on the conditions as the rain continues to fall, and he spins on a left-hander featuring a rather large puddle of water. There's less than five minutes until the final three stages of a thrilling season get underway, you do not want to miss a single moment of what's to come.
Latvala 2h 33m Mikkelsen Hmm, it seems Andreas might have had an issue of some description on this stage, he's dropped Latvala Our new rally leader Jari-Matti Latvala is through the first three stages of Sunday and he's just 0.
It's all okay though. He completes this test 2. We're just driving at a safe place but we don't want to be too far behind if they spin or make a mistake. In the dry this car is really difficult to drive with the set-up. Lappi Lappi's final day with Toyota is going pretty well here, on this stage he's 0. Good old effort from Esapekka as he tackles the jumps full on as well. Ogier Seb Ogier rounds out the morning loop now with another controlled run through the stage.
This morning the conditions were tricky. Evans The Welshman has seen his advantage over Neuville eaten into this morning, he drops another 3. Just doing a good clean job. Neuville Neuville is giving it full commitment this morning and this stage is no exception. A small mistake in the previous stage - it is really tricky when the conditions are like this.
Just trying to have fun and see what's going on. Suninen Teemu Suninen has capitalised on Breen's misfortune as he goes It was a good run for me, there were a few places where I could be a little faster but it's not so bad. He's discussing that incident with Molly Pettit at stop control. Something inside on the grass, I wasn't off line so it must have been something hidden.
I don't know what I have to do any more. Breen Oh no he's had a spin! It appears he clips something and that sends the car spinning.
He drives back up to the junction and spins the car back round and gets going again. Kremer Armin Kremer has rejoined the action today after damage to his Skoda's cooling system forced him to reture yesterday. However, it would appear he's hit trouble again on Sapphire as he finishes 3m SS21 Wedding Bells18 1, 7. It is fast but narrow in places and the surface is clay, with little loose gravel for the early starters to worry about. It is best known for a popular spectator area which features a jump, followed by a watersplash and right bend on a second visit, just before the finish.
Heller Pedro Heller has stopped twice on this test so far, and guess what? One of those stops was at that tricky Latvala 2h 29m Heller Alberto Heller is keeping it steady this morning, he's got no pressure on his lead at the top of the WRC 2 class so he can afford to be calm and not make any mistakes.
He's through the stage in a time of 13m Mikkelsen Andreas was 2.

He's got some very passionate fans to wave him in at stop control. He's got a bit of damage to the front-right corner. The plan is to stay ahead of Paddon, for sure it is not easy. You have to read the road all the time. I don't know what we'll do with Ott because Paddon is not so far off, the situation is changing a little bit. He has to reverse back out but he manages to keep on going.
Paddon Paddon's loving these conditions in what is effectively his home event. The Kiwi is a whole 3. I made a little reminder to Jari what happened last year - it's not over til it's over! I tried to keep it calm and just have a clean run through the stage. Lappi Esapekka said he's not taking any risk today but he's still giving it a good go.

He tells Colin his focus isn't on Mads: But on the previous stage I said this is not the game! Normally it would be but not today, it is all about keeping Seb behind.
Ogier Ogier is keeping it clean, he doesn't want to risk throwing it off the road at this late stage. That said, he's obviously given it a decent effort on this test as he's just 2. Not a relaxing Sunday for sure! Evans Elfyn isn't taking Neuville's charge lightly here, the Welshman won't give up his position without a fight. Some places the grip is reasonable and then in other places you just take off.
Guessing it off the colour but the guess work isn't always right! Neuville He's very impressive through the splits and he reaches the end of Sapphire with the fastest time - so far - as he takes Bit of animated discussion between him and Nicolas on the trip between the finish and stop control. There's damage to the rear of his i20, the exhaust looks pretty bashed.

Suninen Teemu Suninen keeps it clean and reaches the end of this test with no issues, lowering Breen's stage time by 7. First time for me seeing these conditions and to be honest that was one of the hardest conditions.
Breen Craig Breen reaches the end of the stage now, in a time of 12m He's asked how he's feeling by Colin Clark at stop control: Two spins in places where I thought I'd braked enough. I think there'll be a bit of trouble in this one.

Suninen The mistakes for Breen are allowing Suninen to go green through the splits. Breen Breen's briefly off the road again at the He's going again now but it shows just how slippery this test is. Breen A brief off for Breen as well, he stopped briefly having slid into the trees. He's back on the road though. Serderidis Jourdan Serderidis has stopped at the Heller Sadly it doesn't count for much in the overall standings but Pedro Heller can at least gain some bragging rights over his little brother at the next family meal as he beats Alberto's stage time by SS20 Sapphire 1, It is fast throughout and runs primarily among the trees.
A rough hairpin bend at Mikkelsen Andreas has given it a good push on here, he's second-fastest just 5. That said, he's dropped 9. Luckily it started again. Latvala Go on Jari-Matti, he's driving it beautifully this morning - he's a massive 9.
Where on earth as he found that extra time from? Paddon Hayden Paddon is in third place and looking good to solidifying his position on the podium. As long as we can keep the pressure on anything can happen. It was very boggy in there, not a lot you can do with the bogginess.
Lappi Esapekka Lappi was flying yesterday, this morning he's just playing it cool - not taking any risks in these tricky conditions this morning. He crosses the flying finish and drops I will be the back up and not push too hard. All about the team today for sure. Evans Elfyn Evans the next to put a time on the board and he is second-fastest through the stage - 8. Neuville Neuville's early bit of drama hasn't delayed him much it would seem.
He's the quickest through the splits and fastest on the stage as he improves on Breen's time by Lot of chatting between Thierry and co-driver Nicolas Gilsoul at stage-end. Some parts are maybe getting more dry and some more slippy. Suninen Teemu Suninen can't beat Breen's benchmark, he's 5.
Breen Breen completes the stage next, and he's a bit happier with the conditions. Serderidis Jourdan Serderidis completes the stage now and it seems to have been a tricky one for him: He slides into a bank at the 3.
It was a right-hander and he just slides on into the bank. Doesn't appear to be any lasting damage as he carries on going. Suninen Suninen slips and slides his way through the first split - at the 5. Suninen Teemu Suninen is the third driver onto the stage and the on board shows a rather picturesque forest and a pretty muddy stage Sun Once more unto the breach! SS19 Coramba 1, It climbs initially on roads that are unusually rough, but it is smooth for the rest of the way, apart from another rocky section from 12 - 13km.
SS19 is very muddy and slippery near the start on the clay and features a lot of standing water as the rain continues to fall. Wedding Bells18 rounds out the loop. After retirements for both Pedro Heller and Armin Kremer - who are both restarting today - Alberto Heller currently enjoys a lead of more than 19 minutes and is surely on course for his first WRC support category victory.
Keep your eyes focused on wrc. We'll be back tomorrow at 6. Heller 2h 20m Breen Craig is our final driver to turn a wheel competitively on Saturday and he is 10th fastest - 7.
We'll let you know when that pops in. Mikkelsen Mikkelsen's made a mistake! He just clips the concrete barrier at the first hairpin. That's cost him a bit of time but it doesn't look like he's done anything other than cosmetic damage to that car. He's through to the end with no more mischief and he is Breen The Irishman rounds things off for the penultimate stage as he loses Mikkelsen The Hyundai driver is too far down the order to make any moves happen, but he's still cracking on with putting in some quick times in the i However, the wet weather has slowed him down considerably, to the tune of Latvala Jari-Matti spashes his way through the stage and he is Paddon Paddon concludes this group of cars through the two runs and he is Lappi Esapekka is slinging his Toyota around the already drenched stage with the grip almost non-existent now.
Ogier Right, Seb is back onto the stage to end the penultimate day of as the rain starts to fall in the service park. Back on the stage, it's raining heavily as well and that lack of grip has caught out Ogier somewhat, he's dropped 7.
Lappi Esapekka Lappi is charging again, but he can't set the fastest stage time. He matches Ogier's effort, 0. He can't beat Neuville on this one, he's 0. Suninen Three Fiestas heading back to the service park now as Teemu Suninen ends his penultimate day of the season. Evans Cracking time from Elfyn, he's just 0. Neuville The Belgian completes his day now with a second pass through the super special. He's quickest of anyone, by 3. Serderidis They're tackling the two runs of Destination NSW in groups of four, which means Serderidis is back out to tackle the final stage of Saturday.
He's second-fastest on the second pass, 0. Suninen Teemu Suninen twists and turns his way round the jumps and donuts of this stage and he is quick - matching Elfyn by going 0.

He then goes 3. His deficit to Alberto is 19m Heller Alberto gets proceedings underway on SS17 with a 1m Drivers must quickly adapt their driving style to an overnight change in road surface. Fast, smooth, sweeping asphalt is comparable to a race circuit in its characteristics.
Event History First run in and included in the European Championship from Relocated to Salou in and after being a pure asphalt event, it developed into a mixed surface event in Car Setup Both asphalt and gravel set-up required for the mixed roads. Different tyres are needed for the two surfaces. Asphalt is abrasive and if temperatures are hot, drivers must manage tyre wear carefully. It borrows 23km from the familiar Terra Alta stage, but in the opposite direction, and 12km of new roads lead into the Vilalba finish.
