Kris Meeke clinches maiden stage win at Rally de Espana

Kris Meeke and co-driver Paul Nagle took their maiden World Rally Championship stage win on the way to a fifth place finish at Rally de Espana.

Driving his Mini Cooper Works WRC, the Dungannon driver won the Power Stage, which was held in slippery conditions caused by a sudden downpour.

Meeke headed his Mini team-mate Dani Sordo by 0.2 seconds, with rally winner Sebastien Loeb third fastest in his Citroen DS3 WRC.

Meeke was helped by a good tyre choice.
