The final word #ForCraig
Hyundai Motorsport has participated in Croatia Rally to honour Craig Breen, who tragically lost his life in pre-event testing on Thursday last week. Running two specially liveried cars depicting the Irish flag, the team has paid tribute to Craig and his passion for rallying. A selection of Craig’s inspiring, heart-on-sleeve quotes have adorned the team’s service area, paying tribute to man whose legacy will live on in the rallying and motorsport communities.
Hyundai Motorsport dedicates today’s podium result to Craig, to his co-driver James Fulton, to his wonderful family, devoted friends, and loyal fans, all for whom this past week has been one of raw emotion, sadness, and loss, but also one full of love for a man who gave so much and leaves so much behind. Rest in peace, Craig.
“Don't let anyone ever put you down, because only you know your true potential.” Craig Breen, Rally Sweden, February 2023
