WRC Driver Gets Lost In Car Park, Still Wins Rally

We can’t remember the last time a World Rally Championship event ended in this much drama, after long-time Rally Mexico leader Kris Meeke flew off road and into a car park in the final minutes

Remind me later

Meeke’s Citroen C3 WRC narrowly avoided hitting spectator cars as it jumped through the bushes and into the car park.

He seemed to get a little lost – shades of F1 star Kimi Raikkonen at Interlagos in 2013 – but eventually found his way back onto the road.

His lead was 40 seconds heading into the stage but he completed it still with a 13.8-second advantage over M-Sport’s Sebastien Ogier to win.
