RallySport Magazine | Australia's Best Rally Magazine
Keith Cronin won his fourth British title after victory on the Manx Rally.

Irish Fiesta R5 driver Keith Cronin won the MSA British Rally Championship for the fourth time, after winning both two rounds of the two part asphalt Rally Isle of Man, the final 2017 BRC championship event.

Swedish driver Fredrik Ahlin finished third on both parts, finishing third place on both rounds after leading the series after the first part.

He lost time with a spin on cold tyres, after crews were delayed at the start of a previous stage which was then cancelled.
