Michelin Magic Moment 2016

What is your magic moment from an exciting and dramatic 2016 WRC campaign? Your standout memory from more than 4000km of flat-out action across the globe?

We’ve selected a shortlist of four season highlights and put them into two video compilations below for you to enjoy. Take a look and cast your vote for the Michelin Magic Moment 2016, which will be awarded at the WRC Gala Dinner and Awards in Sydney this month.

The nominations are:

M-Sport – Mads Østberg’s Rally Guanajuato Mexico podium secured M-Sport’s 200th consecutive points finish, a remarkable record that began way back in 2002.

Kris Meeke – shocked the locals with a stunning performance in a 2015-spec DS 3 to become the first British driver to win Neste Rally Finland.

Sébastien Ogier – marvel at the Frenchman’s ‘save’ when he held onto a monster sixth gear, 185kph slide in Rally Sweden’s Vargåsen stage.

Ott Tänak – dominated PZM 73rd Rally Poland and couldn’t hold back the emotions when a penultimate stage puncture cruelly deprived him of a maiden win.

The winner will be announced during the glamorous gala, which follows the WRC’s final round at Kennards Hire Rally Australia (17 - 20 November).

It is being organised by Rally Australia and WRC Promoter on Monday 21 November and more than 200 guests and celebrities are due to attend at the Museum of Contemporary Art, across the water from the Opera House.

While casting your vote you can also enter our competition to win an annual subscription to our WRC+ interactive digital service worth 49.99 euros. We’re giving away 6 subscriptions today and 15 during the week.

One more category will be decided by fan votes here on this week.
