Co-driven by Scott Martin, the 25-year old Irishman mastered the challenging winter conditions to win the Latvian event in his Peugeot Rally Academy 208 T16. It was extremely tough inside the rally car, and Breen had no hesitation in graciously acknowledging the magnificent efforts the organisers put in to run the event safely.
“Rally Liepāja is one of the standout events of the year in terms of organisation and I know that Raimonds Strokšs and his team put in a really fantastic effort every year,” said Breen.
“Their attention to detail is incredible and if they thought they could control the weather, I’m sure they’d have had a go at that as well. Hopefully next year we can find the sweet spot and hold the rally on a weekend when all the conditions are okay, because it would be the icing on the cake. But still, it’s a fantastic event.”
