Elfyn Evans celebrates world rally academy win

Elfyn Evans, the son of former British Rally Championship winner Gwyndaf, has won the FIA World Rally Championship Academy title.

The 23-year-old took the crown in the penultimate race, the Rallye de France Alsace.

Evans and co-driver Phil Pugh backed up wins in Greece, Finland and Germany with a fourth win.

"It's a fantastic feeling," said Evans, whose final race is in Spain's Costa Daurada from 8-11 November.

"From the start of the year when we had a disasterous rally in Portugal, to turn around and have four wins in a row is just unbelievable.

"We still have to concentrate for Spain in five weeks, because we have to gain valuable experience of the event for the future."
