WRC drivers compete in friendly match for Euro 2016
Football fever took over the service park in Sardinia this afternoon in celebration of Hyundais sponsorship of the UEFA Euro 2016 tournament.
Before the WRC action gets underway with shakedown tomorrow, we invited WRCs drivers including our own Thierry, Hayden, Dani and Kevin to try out a very different sporting challenge.
Our boys were joined by Sébastien Ogier, Jari-Matti Latvala, Andreas Mikkelsen, Mads Østberg, Eric Camilli, Ott Tanak, Martin Prokop and Henning Solberg in a special match refereed by WRC Lives reporter Colin Clark held on an inflatable table-football pitch!
Sardinia might be over 1,200km from the venue for Fridays Euro 2016 opener at the Stade de France, but it still provided a perfect setting for a fun event.
There will be plenty of WRC enthusiasts following the Euro 2016 tournament. Eight of the participating countries also host a round of this years World Rally Championship France, Sweden, Portugal, Poland, Germany, Spain, Wales and, of course, Italy.
Well certainly be hoping that our drivers can score a good result in this weekends rally!
