The name stood out like a Cibie Oscar shining across the night sky. When eWRC-results.com installed its subscription service just before Rally Sweden, sign-ups were virtually everywhere.
But this one stood out. Craig Breen.
An internal note was fired off immediately: a factory driver had signed up.
Site owner Tomáš Wanka smiled: “It’s always nice when you have these moments. Early last year, when we were deciding what direction to take with the site, we had a lot of emails from drivers and co-drivers.
“For so many hours and so many days all through the year, we sit at the computer and input data. So many numbers, now close to three and a half million individual entries. That’s a lot! So when we have this human contact from one of the heroes we are putting data in, it means so much to the team!”
The respect from the eWRC team and Breen is mutual.
“What the team at eWRC does is just incredible,” said Breen.
“Honestly, I look at the site so many times, every day. When it was switched off last year, I was a little bit lost. Anything I can do to help those guys and support them, I’m right there. It’s a special place.”
