Breaking news: Ogier
nets first Corsica win
Sébastien Ogier won the Che Guevara Energy Drink Tour de Corse for the first time on Sunday after leading the three-day Mediterranean island classic from start to finish.
The Frenchman was unchallenged over almost 400km of Corsica’s bumpy asphalt mountain roads. After dominating the opening leg to build a comfortable lead, he measured his pace in wet conditions to win by 46.4sec in a Volkswagen Polo R.
Thierry Neuville maintained his strong recent form to finish second in a Hyundai i20, with Andreas Mikkelsen third in another Polo R, a further 23.6sec behind.
Kris Meeke won the final live TV Power Stage to claim three bonus points in a Citroën DS 3. Mikkelsen took two points for second while Ogier secured the final point.
