Podcast: Can Rovanperä improve on Estonia domination?

The DirtFish team discuss Colin Clark's driver ratings, Tänak's future and more


Is Colin Clark’s driver rating for Kalle Rovanperä too harsh? Should he have been given a 10 out of 10?

It’s one topic of debate on this weekend’s SPIN, The Rally Pod between Clark and co-host David Evans, after another masterclass from the Toyota driver on last weekend’s Rally Estonia.

The Finn was in imperious form, winning the rally by over a minute, but Clark still felt he was deserving of a 9/10, rather than full marks, feeling there’s still some room for a stronger performance.

Also up for discussion is Elfyn Evans’ Estonia performance and whether he does stand a chance of beating the championship leader next time out at Finland, while the team also debate over M-Sport and Hyundai’s ability to close the gap on Toyota going forward.

And you can’t talk about Estonia without mentioning its national hero Ott Tänak. Our Evans talks about the Hyundai driver’s performance on his home event, and a debate ensues about Tänak’s whereabouts next year. Could he leave Hyundai for pastures new?

There’s plenty to discuss, so sit back, relax and spend 25 minutes soaking in everything Rally Estonia had to offer.
