How Rally Portugal delivered another thriller

The podcast team discuss all the major talking points from another spectacular round in Portugal


Here’s a first… SPIN, The Rally Pod comes to you from Porto airport’s departure lounge.

Faced with a flight delayed by a couple of hours, David Evans and Colin Clark found room for one final Pastel de Nata (it has to be called its Portuguese name – it’s so much more than a custard tart, especially when it’s fresh from the oven and sprinkled in cinnamon) and settled in for a chat.

Former star of British national rallying Simon Hughes joined the pair, having treated team DirtFish to his very welcome insight for much of the week.

And so to Kalle Rovanperä and the Finn’s extraordinary hat-trick completed in Rally Portugal. As well as the Toyota star’s brilliance, the rule is run across every other element of what was another stunning round of the World Rally Championship.

There’s even room for some Sardine chat and a near disaster with the stacking of some bottles.
