Kris Meeke ends up in parking lot, wins WRC race anyway!

2017-03-13 11:19

Mexico - Kris Meeke won the 2017 Mexico Rally but only after having to negotiate his way at high speed through a busy public car park to reach the finish line.

His race almost ended prematurely on the final power stage when he ended up in a car park.

He was forced to slalom his way past parked vehicles as well as spectators in order to regain his place on the dirt road racing surface, bursting through a hedge in the process.

'Lucky boy'

Meeke said: "After a jump, I took a hit. I'm really a lucky boy. What a way to finish the rally. I was in the hands of God. I finally made my way between the cars but had punctured the front left tyre. When I crossed the line I didn't know whether I had won or not."

Meeke dominated the weekend, leading from the opening stage on the second day in his Citroen to finish ahead of world champion Sebastien Ogier in the M-Sport/Ford.
