Driving tips from Kris Meeke

Rally driving is all about you, the car and the stopwatch - and that means going as fast as you can whatever the conditions.

One thing that always shakes things up is rain, especially when you aren't expecting it. Because we are out, away from our service crew and getting to and through the stages for several hours at a time, it's not unusual to be caught out on slicks in a downpour, or wets in the baking hot sunshine, or - perhaps worst of all - on any type of tyre when its a mixture of wet, damp and dry in a single stage.
