2017 Rally Italy Sardegna – Part 2

Elfyn Evans and Daniel Barritt started their Rally Italia Sardegna well and were just 0.5 seconds adrift of the lead after the opening Super Special.

Unfortunately, they would only get two more stages under their belt. Caught-out by a dip after a tightening corner on the first pass of Tula (SS4), the pairing slid off the road and sustained damaged the front-right suspension of their Ford Fiesta WRC.

Returning to the stages under Rally 2 regulations, Evans focused on racking up the kilometres. Having missed out on valuable data through the opening speed tests, the Welshman tasked himself with delivering a clean run through the remaining kilometres so as to collect vital information for future development.

Elfyn said:

Congratulations to Ott who really deserved the victory this weekend. We’ve got such a strong team around us at the moment and they’ve all worked their socks off so a massive congratulations to them as well.

It’s fair to say that this weekend didn’t go our way, but we’ll focus on the positives and look forward to the next event in Poland.

After the time loss on Friday it was really important to get the mileage under our belts. This is one of the most abrasive rallies of the year and we collected a lot of data that can be put to good use for future development.
