Bryan Bouffier finished as vice-champion this year in the FIA European Rally Championship – taking one win in Corsica in his Peugeot 207 S2000.

He also competed in the WRC too, and was a very impressive fifth on the season opener, Rallye Monte Carlo in a Citroen DS3 WRC. He then followed that up with the WRC3 class win in Portugal - and 13th place overall.

His other two runs in the WRC – Spain and Wales – didn't go so well, with mechanical problems putting him out in GB.

Away from the on-stage action, he was recruited as a test driver for Hyundai and also claimed the 'Colin McRae ERC Flat Out Trophy Driver of the Year' award, impressing the judges as he never gave up during the 2013 season. It seems he impressed you too and you gave him an average mark of 4.717 out of ten, placing him ninth in your top-ten.
