Victory In Greece Cements Rovanpera’s Title Ambitions

Kalle Rovanperä scored his third victory of the season in Greece on Sunday to tighten his grip on this year’s FIA World Rally Championship. He headed teammate Elfyn Evans, his closest championship challenger, by 1:31.7 seconds at the finish and extended his points over the Welshman to 33 with three rounds remaining. “Of course, it’s a big relief,” said Rovanperä, who also helped grow Toyota’s manufacturers’ championship lead to 91 points over Hyundai. Evans lost more than one minute on Saturday as a result of his Toyota overheating but fought back to finish runner-up after battling with Hyundai’s Dani Sordo until the very last stage.
