VIDEO: Citroën and M-Sport tie WRC van challenge

The inaugural - and quite possibly only - round of a new World Rally Van Drawing Challenge has been declared a draw after judges failed to split two teams representing Citroën and M-Sport.

The light-hearted contest, which is featured in the WRC+ preview programme for this week's Coates Hire Rally Australia, pitted two top WRC crews head-to-head in a unique test of van driving and artistic flair.

Kris Meeke and Elfyn Evans took the wheel of a Citroën Jumper and a Ford Transit respectively, while their co-drivers Paul Nagle and Dan Barritt swapped pace notes for pencils and paper to draw their visions of a future World Rally Car.

The duel took place on an asphalt stage in Germany, with judges awarding marks at the finish for the best drawing.

The teams rose to the challenge admirably, with Meeke and Evans finding the limits of their vans, while Nagle and Barritt overcame hurdles like broken pencils and missing pencil sharpeners to create two truly unique works of art.
