Marco Bulacia Wilkinson is the current leader in the WRC3 class as both Oliver Solberg and Alberto Heller had to retire the rally for the day. Bulacia Wilkinson is currently ninth overall and he is third fastest R5 car.

After Thursday night’s two opening-stages it was Solberg who led the WRC3 class at the Rally Mexico but just before the first stage’s finish line, a rock hit the front of his Volkswagen Polo GTI R5 and it started to spill out oil.

After Solberg’s retirement is was M-Sport‘s Heller who took the lead, making a mistake in the second stage of the Friday, hitting a tree stump which caused him also to reitre and then Bulacia Wilkinson took the lead.

Now the Bolivian driver who is driving a Citroën C3 R5 provided by Tagai Racing, leads the rally with 1:19.6 minute over Emiliano Fernández, while the third-place Kajetan Kajetanowicz is behind Fernández with an additional 8.9 seconds.
