In fact the two previously met a quarter of a century ago in Welshpool car park and Jodie has remained a fan ever since.

The pair recreated their meeting in Welshpool in Llandrindod Wells ahead of the weekend rally.

Jodi said: "It was great to meet up again, we chatted and he remembered meeting me in Welshpool so long ago which was lovely.

"It is fantastic to see so many great motorsport events being held in Powys again. It is the home of British rallying and to see so many people in Llandrindod Wells supporting the sport was really encouraging."
