Kris Meeke 250415

Local rally driver Kris Meeke has taken victory today at Rally Finland, which he has called the "home of rally".

The Tyrone man, who lives in Donegal, and Killarney co-driver Paul Nagle drove their Citroen DS3 to success on the biggest event on the WRC calendar, taking victory by 28.1 seconds from the Volkswagen Polo of home favourite Jari-Matti Latvala.

For local rally fans, the Finland Rally is probably the biggest rally in the world.

Meeke said: "This is the home of rally. I've been enjoying it like a kid. It's exceptional. Great team effort."

The brilliant drive sees Kris become just the sixth non-Nordic victor in the rally’s 65-year history.
