Tänak heads Suninen in Estonia test event

M-Sport Ford driver Ott Tänak scored a dominant win at Saturday’s Lõuna-Eesti Ralli in preparation for next week’s Rally Estonia (20 – 23 July). Driving M-Sport’s Ford Puma Rally1 Hybrid, the 35-year-old won all nine stages and cantered to a 38-second victory from Teemu Suninen’s Hyundai i20 N Rally1. Suninen was making his first factory outing with the Korean manufacturer’s top-line car since he deputised for Tänak at the 2021 FORUM8 ACI Rally Monza. Like Tänak, Suninen was using the 68-kilometre Estonian event as a warm-up for round eight of this year’s WRC. For Finn Suninen, it was useful to add to his limited knowledge of Rally1 running ahead of his first WRC outing in the current Hyundai – he joins Thierry Neuville and Esapekka Lappi in the factory team in Estonia and Finland.
