Evans to have a balanced approach for Acropolis Rally Greece

Elfyn Evans aims to find a balance between taking risks and avoiding any possible problem at this week's Acropolis Rally Greece knowing that the Yaris is a strong car.

The Welsh driver completed his tests for Acropolis Rally Greece, but they were not successful as he faced some technical issues with his Yaris and he was forced to get fewer kilometers than his teammates.

Evans is heading to Greece with a 38-point gap from the first Sebastien Ogier in the driver's championship and he will start second in the gravel stages despite the fact that he has equal points with Thierry Neuville.

"Dry, dusty gravel rallies are not normally the sort of events where you put the thing on its absolute doorhandles – it’s a bit more about technique and thinking", said Evans.

"We have to find the balance.

"I’m not going to say we’re going without risk, that would be stupid and you wouldn’t get any kind of result like that. 

"But it’s not about throwing caution to the wind.

"And it’s not about loading the car with spare parts either, even though Friday is a complete day without any lunchtime service.

"Maybe we have to look at the car. 

"In terms of spares we’re so limited to what we can repair ourselves now anyway and the car is so strong, you have to hit something to break a part on the car – and to hit the actual part that you’re carrying in the car is quite rare!

"Carrying a lot of spares doesn’t seem to be the ‘in’ thing to do at the minute, we’ll take more protection, the same as everybody".
