Ravenpera Sets World Rally Pace In Greece

Kalle Rovanperä is on course for a remarkable victory at EKO Acropolis Rally Greece after Saturday’s brutal penultimate leg forced fellow challengers Thierry Neuville and Sébastien Ogier into retirement. He had trailed championship leader Rovanperä by 36 points coming into this fixture, round 10 of 13. His demise left Ogier in control but the Frenchman, who entered the final Eleftherohori stage 12.4 seconds ahead of team-mate Rovanperä, swiped a rock which destroyed the rear-left suspension on his Toyota GR Yaris. He retired on the final road section while Rovanperä romped to the top. The 22-year-old will start the final leg with a lead of more than two minutes over Hyundai Motorsport Dani’s Sordo.
