Daeth Pencampwr Byd Rali’r FIA Sébastien Ogier yn gyntaf yn diweddglo gorau a cyflymaf y gyfres blwyddyn yma – wrth dod a’i cyfanswm i chwech safle cyntaf cyfres yma. Mae e nawr yn ymuno a Hannu Mikkola a Petter Solberg yn clwb arbennig o gyrrwyr i ennill pedwar gwaith ar tir Prydain.
"To draw equal on wins here with Petter and Hannu is incredible - they're two of the giants of our sport," dywedwyd Ogier. "It's always a huge challenge to win in Wales. It's funny - a few years ago, this was one of my least favourite rallies on the calendar as I really found it difficult to master and now it's one I always really enjoy. The stages are beautiful and you're always on the limit and close to the edge.
"For me, one of the highlights of the weekend was meeting so many spectators in Chester and Cholmondeley. I think we've made a lot of fans happy this weekend, which is really rewarding; I'm already looking forward to returning next year!"
Roedd hi’n diwedd annodd i’r penwythnos i Cymro Osian Pryce a gafodd ei ddileu ar y diwrnod olaf wrth problemau hefo’i rheiddiadur. Yn y cyfamser, bennwyd gyrrwr Lloegr Tony Jardine a ennillwr medal aur olympaidd ysgerbwd Amy Williams benni’n 39fed yn Mitsubishi Evo.
Dywedwyd cyfarwyddwr y digwyddiad Ben Taylor: "The move to a half-term date made for better weather for spectators and a new challenge for competitors; it was fantastic to see so many families in the Deeside Rally Village, at Cholmondeley, in Chester and out on the stages.
"In fact, it was great to see so many fans of all ages enjoying the action and I would like to congratulate Sébastien, Julien and Volkswagen Motorsport on their success. We must also thank everybody involved in making this rally such a great success, especially the 2,000 volunteer marshals without whom none of this would be possible."
Fydd rownd terfynol pencampwriaeth y byd Rali yn symyd I Awstralia ar y 17fed o Tachwedd.
