WRC2: Solberg claims shock lead as rivals falter

Oliver Solberg ended a frantic Friday at Renties Ypres Rally Belgium with an unexpected lead in the WRC2 category. Suninen picked up a front right puncture just a few kilometres into the final stage of the day. Jari Huttunen had been second at the time, but he also punctured in the same stage. Driving a Hyundai i20 N Rally2 on its debut, the 19-year-old eventually arrived back to service 2min 48.7sec clear of Huttunen. “We had a great first day in the Hyundai i20 N Rally2,” Solberg beamed. “Like I said: a great day, but now we have to make sure we make it a really great weekend,” he added.
