T. Makinen / R. Mannisenmaki

Victory in Kenya, the second in his career, means Tommi moves ahead in the FIA World Rally Championship and takes a clear 10 point advantage over Britain’s Colin McRae. His points, and those consistently amassed by Freddy, give Mitsubishi the lead in the Manufacturers’ Championship in what is turning into a two-horse race with Ford.

Mitsubishi Motors drivers also swept to victory in the Group N production car class. Argentina’s Gabriel Pozzo extended his Group N World Championship lead with a convincing win in his Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution over fellow countryman and Lancer Evolution driver Marcos Ligato. It was Mitsubishi’s 23rd successive Group N World Championship rally win and remarkably, the first three in Group N, all in Mitsubishis, were all amongst the top 10 finishers on a rally in which just 15 crews went the distance.
