Breen happy ahead of Swedish Rally
- 9th February 2017, 9:31pm
Pre-event road conditions for the Swedish Rally brought smiles to the faces of the drivers, none so much as Craig Breen.
“It’s an awesome feeling, the 2017 rally cars are fantastic to drive, you get so much pleasure from every kilometre behind the wheel,” Breen said.
“We still have a lot of things to learn. Me and Scott (Martin, his co-driver) have been like children waiting for Christmas to arrive, just wanting to get started. All my life I have been waiting for a chance like this.
“Of course I’m a bit nervous, but whenever I feel under pressure I always go back to the same thing, knowing that the chance to drive cars worth hundreds of thousands of euros and be part of this team is so rare, something so unique.
“The chance to drive a World Rally Car down some of the best stages in the world puts a spring in your step. It is the best job in the world, that’s one hundred percent sure.”
