Argentina: Meeke nets maiden WRC (...)

Kris Meeke claimed his first WRC victory on Sunday when he headed a Citroën 1-2 finish at XION Rally Argentina.

The Northern Irishman led home team-mate Mads Østberg by 18.1sec after leading the gruelling four-day rough road event for all but the opening couple of kilometres. Both were driving DS 3 cars.

Elfyn Evans scored his first podium after finishing third in a Ford Fiesta RS despite broken rear suspension in the final stage. The Welshman was 3min 09.3sec behind Østberg.

World championship leader Sébastien Ogier, who finished down the order after fuel supply problems, won the final live TV Power Stage to claim three bonus points in a Volkswagen Polo R. Dani Sordo took two in a Hyundai i20, with Østberg claiming the final point.
