Evans still ahead of WRC2 field after Day 2 in Corsica


Elfyn Evans remained the man to beat in WRC2 as he still leads the 2016 Tour de Corse – Rallye de France after Day 2.

Evans needs to hope that if he wins tomorrow on his seventh and final rally entry of the 2016 WRC2 season that Finland’s Teemu Suninen and Esapekka Lappi have some misfortune in the last two rallies of the campaign in Spain and GB.

The Welshman might have dropped down the overall WRC leaderboard, but Evans remains in the top ten in tenth place with one more day left to go on the Corsican asphalt.

Evans said “It’s been a pretty good day. We had a clean run with no problems and managed to build on our advantage from last night which was our objective for the day.

“We got caught in the worst of the rain this afternoon so that didn’t help us in the overall standings. When the conditions are like that, you really have to concentrate on your driving technique and that seemed to work pretty well for us, but we lost out to those who were running in the dry further up the road.

“Overall, and in terms of the WRC2 championship, the day has been good.”
