WRC returns to Europe for 46th Tour de Corse
After nearly a month’s break, the FIA World Rally Championship returns this weekend from the French island of Corsica, with Motorsport.tv bringing you highlights from all three days!
 
Last time out in Mexico, Sebastien Ogier reasserted himself at the head of the standings, taking victory ahead of Dani Sordo and Kris Meeke. 2017 Tour de Corse winner Thierry Neuville will be hoping to get his title challenge back on track after enduring a difficult weekend in Latin America. Another storyline from Mexico was the return of Sebastien Loeb, the Citroen driver looking as strong as ever, and is sure to be a factor in his home event.
 
Along with coverage of the 2018 event, Motorsport.tv will be delving into the Duke Video archives for some Classic FIA World Rally Championship action, looking back at the 1986, 1988 and 1991 editions of the Corsica Rally, as teams representing Audi, Lancia, Toyota, Ford and Peugeot took on the twisty mountain roads.
