Vote Now: Performance of the Year

Big occasions demand big performances behind the wheel – and we’ve picked four of the very best from 2020 for the second of this year’s exciting end-of-year WRC awards.

We’ve put our four selections into a video compilation below and now we want you to pick your favourite and vote for the Performance of the Year.

 The nominations are:

Elfyn Evans and Scott Martin master Turkey’s rock-strewn roads

Rally Turkey exploded on the final morning. The 38.15km Çetibeli was touted as the rockiest and most feared test of the event. One of the WRC’s most dramatic stages in years turned the leaderboard upside down as punctures took a terrible toll. Elfyn Evans started it in fourth but steered clear of the carnage to finish in the lead and en route to a second win of 2020.

Sébastien Ogier and Julien Ingrassia deliver power-packed start with Toyota

Should we have expected anything different from the then six-time world champions? Rallye Monte-Carlo was their first outing in Toyota Gazoo Racing’s Yaris. Thursday’s night-time stage from Malijai to Puimichel, on roads new to everyone, was a tough way to start the alliance. The result? A stunning stage win by 1.8sec from reigning champ Ott Tänak.

Ott Tänak and Martin Järveoja bounce back from huge shunt

The 2019 world champions began life at Hyundai Motorsport with a massive crash at Rallye Monte-Carlo. Three weeks later they returned to action to finish second in Sweden. Only afterwards did Tänak reveal the lingering pain from the crash and how he won a race against time to be fit to compete in Sweden. Against that backdrop, second was a remarkable drive.

Craig Breen and Paul Nagle hold on in closest WRC podium

Before Rally Estonia, the Irish duo had started just one WRC round in the previous 11 months. Ring rusty? No way. They finished second on the championship’s post-lockdown restart event to match Breen’s career-best result. Their reward? An enhanced programme with Hyundai Motorsport for 2021.
