Rovanperä leads but team-mate Evans hits trouble

Kalle Rovanperä steered to the top of the EKO Acropolis Rally Greece leaderboard after an incident-filled Friday morning on rugged gravel roads near Athens. Fourth in the opening 17.54km Aghii Theodori left the 20-year-old Finn in fourth overall in his Toyota Yaris World Rally Car. “I still have to think how to drive with the car and the tyre and not use it too much. Third in Loutraki kept the Estonian on the heels of Rovanperä despite a far from easy drive in his Hyundai i20 World Rally Car. He worked on the car before the test but incurred a 40sec penalty for starting late. The car appeared to be jammed in gear throughout the stage and he conceded more than a minute to plunge to 13th.
