Evans On Course For Another Strong Result

1 Mins read

Day 3 of the XION Rally Argentina, round four of the FIA World Rally Championship, was another good days competition for M-Sport’s Elfyn Evans. The Welshman finished fourth overall after a cautious drive.

Following on from his good performance on Friday Evans knew that he was in a good position to score strong points and with that in mind the Welshman drove conservatively over the testing Argentine stages.

“We’ve kept out of trouble today and that puts us up to fourth which is the kind of position we were looking to achieve,” said Evans.  “We weren’t here to push the boat out for the top positions so I think that we can be pleased with where we are. Now it’ll just be a case of staying calm for tomorrow’s final stages.”

Following Ott Tanak’s exit on Friday leg 3 was always going to be about chasing manufacturers points and rebuilding confidence. A puncture on stage nine slowed the Estonian’s progress but his pace did improve gradually. He heads into the final days action still in contention to score manufactures points.

“It’s been a tricky day, really rough with difficult stages,” said Tanak.  “They were very narrow with a lot of dangers hidden on the outside of the line. After yesterday it has been difficult to find a good feeling but we’ve been trying to build it slowly and I think we got better throughout the day.”

Crews will tackle too stages on the final leg of the event.
