The World Rally Championship concluded in Britain with an eighth win of the year for champion Sebastien Ogier, who dedicated his triumph to the victims of Friday’s terrorist attack in Paris.
Round 13 of 13: Britain
There was no home victory in the Rally of Great Britain, though Kris Meeke’s second place was the best result for a local driver since Richard Burns triumphed in 2000.
Sebastien Ogier had 26 seconds in hand at the end of the rain-hit event after team mate Jari-Matti Latvala crashed on the second stage.
“We would like to dedicate today’s win to the memory of the victims of these attacks,” said Ogier afterwards. “All our thoughts go to those who tragically lost their lives on Friday night, to the many casualties and to the victims’ families.”
Next event: 2016 Rally of Monte Carlo
Race 35 of 36: Phoenix
Rain delayed and then curtailed the penultimate race of the NASCAR season by nearly 100 laps. Dale Earnhardt Jnr, who was already out of the title running, claimed his third victory of the year in a race.
The race decided which three drivers joined Jeff Gordon as those able to win the title under the series’ Chase for the Cup rules. Defending champion Kevin Harvick, who took second, claimed one of the places. However third place for Joey Logano was not enough to keep him in contention, despite having won as many races as any other driver this year.
Kyle Busch came fourth and will go to Homestead able to win the championship even though he missed 11 races earlier in the year due to injury. The final remaining chase contender is Martin Truex Jnr, who finished 14th.
Next race: Homestead – November 22nd
