Analyzing the defining moments of Croatia Rally

George Donaldson casts his expert eye over Sunday's key incidents on this week's SPIN, The Rally Pod


Croatia Rally’s ‘Super Sunday’ proved to be particularly dramatic as mistakes by Thierry Neuville and Elfyn Evans on the same stage cost them their shots at victory on the latest round of the World Rally Championship.

But just how did those mistakes occur? Were Neuville and Evans unlucky or could they consider themselves fortunate to be able to continue and limit their time loss?

Ott Tänak too had his fair show of moments on the treacherous SS18, while Adrien Fourmaux lost more time than anyone – but bounced back to win the powerstage.

George Donaldson and David Evans join host Alasdair Lindsay for this week’s edition of SPIN, The Rally Pod, where George provides expert analysis on the moments in question.

Rally winner Sébastien Ogier’s scathing indictment of the 2024 points system provides another talking point, while there is also discussion of Croatia’s chances of appearing on the 2025 calendar and the latest driver set to compete aboard Rally1 machinery.
