Rovanperä leads in Greece as Ogier’s title rivals suffer

Kalle Rovanperä led EKO Acropolis Rally Greece on Friday night after an enthralling day which could prove decisive in the outcome of this year’s FIA World Rally Championship. Elfyn Evans, second in the points, drove all but the opening speed test with his Yaris jammed in gear and lost almost five minutes. Rovanperä won two of the five rugged special stages as the rally threaded up the country following Thursday’s spectacular start in Athens. Ogier briefly slipped into second but was relegated again in the final test. A jump start penalty and two punctures were a pre-cursor to broken steering just before the end of the final stage.
