Bonato Aces The Asphalt To Win Rally Islas Canarias

Yoann Bonato is a two-time winner in the FIA European Rally Championship after a sublime drive to victory at Rally Islas Canarias on Saturday. Paddon extended his title advantage in second place with defending European champion Efrén Llarena coming home third. Although his tally of stage wins would stop at seven out of a possible 13, Bonato’s victory was never in doubt. “We did our best but the car and tires were also perfect and I am very happy,” said Bonato, who scored his first ERC win in Catalunya last October. Paddon’s capture of second place, which included one stage win, means the Pirelli-equipped New Zealander remains in front in his bid to take the European title in the ERC’s 70th-anniversary season. “The most difficult thing was the tyre decision when the weather is so changeable,” said Hyundai-powered Paddon.
