Sebastien Ogier Secures Record Sixth Rally of Portugal Title

Posted : 13 May 2024

Sebastien Ogier secured a historic sixth victory at the Rally of Portugal by maintaining his lead on the demanding gravel tracks. Piloting a Toyota Yaris, the French driver surpassed Markku Alen's record, who had clinched five titles with Fiat and Lancia in the 1970s and 1980s.


Acknowledging the significance of his achievement, Ogier expressed respect for Alen, considering him a legend in the sport. Reflecting on the persistent inquiries about breaking the record, Ogier stated, "He is a legend, but I heard for many years 'when will you beat this record?'" Despite challenges faced by his team over the weekend, Ogier was pleased to contribute valuable points, describing the rally as a positive outcome amid difficulties.
