Kris Meeke broke a series of Volkswagen victories with a win in Argentina. The Citroen racer recorded his first WRC championship victory and dedicated it to the late Colin McRae, the last Briton to win a rally for the World Championship 13 years ago.

The second was Norwegian and Meek’s teammate Mads Ostberg, and the third was Welshman Elfyn Evans.

Sebastien Ogier, the winner of the last five rallies, won the first three speed trials of the rally in Argentina and then was left without a chance to win on Friday when his Volkswagen Polo broke down. The Frenchman was able to return to the track on Saturday, but he had 35 penalty minutes on his account. A similar fate befell Jari-Matti Latvalo, whose technique failed on Sunday morning.

As said, Meeke recorded his first British victory since 2002, when the late Colin McRae celebrated at a rally in Kenya. “The one who did the most for me is not among us today,” Meeke said. “I dedicate this victory to Colin. He helped me early in my career. He supported me financially until my appearances at the World Cup. Without his support, I would not be here today, ”he added.
