Ogier edges Rovanperä in tight Safari opener

Sébastien Ogier set a hot early pace at Safari Rally Kenya on Thursday afternoon as the top three drivers were blanketed by less than a second at a thrilling opening in Nairobi. Elfyn Evans completed a Toyota Gazoo Racing clean sweep of the top three, the Welshman a further 0.4sec back. Kicking up huge plumes of dust, Ogier beat the Hyundai i20 driver by 2.5sec. Evans came out on top against Thierry Neuville, who conceded a few seconds after running his i20 wide. Tänak’s pace was good enough to secure fourth, with Neuville 5.0sec off the pace in fifth and Takamoto Katsuta completing the top six.
