Breen stripped of Rally win in Switzerland

Craig Breen

Ireland’s Craig Breen has been demoted from first place at the Rallye International du Valais after it was found that his team had used too many tyres.

Breen finished first and it had appeared as though the Waterford man had won his fourth Championship of the year.

But it emerged following a report that Breen used 20 marked tyres during the rally, which gave him a two minute penalty and therefore placed him in second place.
