2014 Drive DMack Fiesta Trophy Finale

Holding a strong lead after winning the opening three rounds of the series, the 22-year-old and his Welsh co-driver James Morgan pair put in a measured drive to secure the inaugural title.

Their reward is a seven-round programme in the 2015 FIA WRC 2 championship driving a Ford Fiesta R5.

Pärn had taken a 29-point advantage into the final round which his championship rival Tom Cave was unable to overhaul.

Welshman Cave led for much of the mixed-surface event after Pärn lost a minute on Friday when he was caught behind a slower competitor. Cave was forced to push hard for the additional points awarded for stage victories but he slid off the road on Sunday morning and dropped back to second.

That left Spanish driver Nil Solans to take victory on his home event. The 22-year-old used his home advantage to good effect, setting a raft of competitive times including his first-ever fastest stage time on Friday. When the rally switched to asphalt he upped the pace, eventually taking his maiden win by two minutes and two seconds from Cave.

Frenchman Quentin Gilbert was the early pacesetter in Spain however his perfect start came to a halt on Friday afternoon when he slid off the road and damaged the suspension on his Ford Fiesta R2. Gilbert returned to dominate the time-sheets with 11 stage wins which helped him secure third in the championship race.

Szymon Kornicki just edged out Max Vatanen for third place on the event but Vatanen ended up two points ahead in the championship and took the Rookie award.
