    Gwyndaf is a big part of memories I have from an amazing time in rallying. It's hard not to be drawn to the guy, I've admired him for years.
    Got a knot in my stomach tonight, thinking about what Elfyn might achieve.
    I saw, first hand, how proud he was when Elfyn dominated in Wales 2017.
    I can't imagine what he's going to be like if he does win it.
    Come on Elfyn.

    I remember Gwyndaf Evans too. I have never been to Great Britain to watch rallying, but I saw reports from the British rally championship on Eurosport at the end of the nineties. At that time people were saying that after banning 4WD cars rallying can't be exciting anymore, but it wasn't true. I may be mixing various years, but I think Gwyndaf was one of the stars of this championship together with Alister McRae, Robbie Head and Tapio Laukkanen.

    Good luck to Elfyn!

Biasion won his titles in 1988 and 1989 with 7 and 6 starts respectively. In 1987 all of the three Lancia drivers were given equally 7 starts.

    It was very untypical to do full seasons before 1995. The closest one I know is Alen in 1986, all rallies except Ivory Coast.
    Not to mention 1983 when Lancia's number 1 driver plainly refused to win the title. Did this diminish Mikkola's title - not in my mind, and I was supporting Rohrl.

    Ogier didn't do himself any favours by saying what he said, but we are all humans.
