Monte Carlo: Seven-time world champion Sebastian Augier won his eighth title in the Monte Carlo Rally on Sunday, a record for the World Rally Championship to be held in this year’s race, which was held without a public presence in southeast France.
The 37-year-old Frenchman, along with his assistant Julian Ingracia, outperformed snow and ice in the final stage in the mountains over Monaco, 32.6 seconds ahead of his Welsh Toyota colleague Elvin Evans.
Defending champion Thierry Nouvel of Belgium came third, 40.9 seconds behind his Hyundai i20.
With his victory in the 89th edition of the Monte Carlo Rally, which was held without fans in compliance with the health protocols of the emerging Corona virus, Oger outperformed his compatriot Sebastian Loeb, the nine-time world champion, who won the rally seven times.
