Irish driver Breen thrilled to make debut at WRC Safari

  • Breen acknowledged the Rally's revered toughness saying it won't be incredibly fast but also tough and punishing. 
  • He was fourth on the shakedown starting order behind Kalle Rovanpera and the Hyundai duo of Thierry Neuville and Ott Tanak Wednesday morning in Naivasha.

M-Sports Irish driver Craig Breen is raring to go for the first time in Kenya having missed last year's return of the Safari to the WRC calendar. 

 

Breen although a novice on Kenyan roads was full of confidence as he addressed his over 48K followers on Micro-blogging site, Twitter. 

 

"It's been quiet eventual already, we've enjoyed the recce in the last two days and it's been absolutely incredible and it's definitely taken my breath away. It's our first time in the event and it's nearly the same as it was last year so we lack a little bit of experience but we won't hold that against ourselves; we will see whether we can get another good result." 

 

Breen acknowledged the Rally's revered toughness saying it won't be incredibly fast but also tough and punishing. 

 

"It's incredibly hard and difficult event. Most definitely the hardest in the world championships. It's more of intelligence because in the car the faster they come the slower they get and it's a balance we have to get right." 

 

Breen was fourth on the shakedown starting order behind Rovanpera and the Hyundai duo of Thierry Neuville and Ott Tanak Wednesday morning in Naivasha.
