RALLY ESTONIA BATTLE HITS FEVER PITCH

We’re almost ready for the grand finale here at Rally Estonia, the 600th FIA World Rally Championship event.

Kambja 2, which doubles up as the all-important Wolf Power Stage.

  • Ott Tänak is within striking distance of a very special win on his home rally. He was lucky to get away with a huge moment in SS16 when his i20 bounced out of some ruts and ran wide on a high-speed section. He now leads by 13.2sec.
  • Craig Breen completes a Hyundai 1-2. The Irishman is 11.7sec in front of a charging Sébastien Ogier in third.
  • Esapekka Lappi also had a moment at the same place as our rally leader. He was unfortunate to spin his Fiesta and drop a handful of seconds which demoted him to seventh behind teammate Teemu Suninen.
  • Thierry Neuville has been taking a conservative approach throughout the day in order to preserve his tyres. You can expect maximum attack from the Belgian as he fights for vital Wolf Power Stage points.
