Volkswagen Are Rally Champs For Second Year Running

Tue, 16 Sep 2014 00:00:00 -0700

ANOTHER year, another title – that’s the news from down under as Volkswagen has secured the World Rally Manufacturers’ Championship for the second year running after a clean sweep at the Rally Australia round.

After a tense battle over the weekend, with Brit Kris Meeke leading for Citroen at one point, Volkswagen eventually took all three podium steps as Sebastien Ogier lead from teammate Jari-Matti Latvala with Andreas Mikkelsen coming in third.

With only three rallies remaining this season, Volkswagen can no longer be caught at the top of the overall standings.

And Rally Australia is also one for the record books, as this is the earliest in a season that a World Championship title has been won for 25 years.

The three Volkswagen crews also top the standings in the Drivers’ Championship, with Ogier and Latvala expected to battle it out over the remaining three rallies to see who is crowned World Champion at the end of the season.
