Rally Croatia - 2nd Day - 1st Loop: Rovanpera remains in top despite his puncture, Solberg out

At the end of the morning loop of the second day, Kalle Rovanpera is still ahead of his rivals with Ott Tanak and Craig Breen following him.

Kalle Rovanpera remains the leader of Rally Croatia despite the fact that he lost 54,4 seconds in Stage 11 due to the fact that he suffered from a front left puncture.

Ott Tanak climbed into second position overall after the time penalty that Thierry Neuville received yesterday night and was the fastest driver in SS11.

Craig Breen completes the top three and received a notional time in Stage 9 as Tanak and Rovanpera did due to Solberg's crash. These three drivers have been taken the same time that Neuville set in that stage. Finally, he spun in Stage 12 resulting in losing 11,6 seconds.

Thierry Neuville is fourth overall after the time penalty he received on Friday night after overspeeding on road section. He was the fastest driver in Stage 12.

Elfyn Evans completes the top five and set the fastest time in Stage 9.

Takamoto Katsuta is in sixth position overall and had an overshoot in the beginning of Stage 10.

Gus Greensmith is outside the top ten after his time loss on Friday due to the punctures he had. Moreover, he completed most of the Stage 12 at road speed with the rear right tyre off the rim.

Oliver Solberg went off the road after 3.9 Kilometers into Stage 9 and the rear of his i20N bursted into flames. Stage 9 was cancelled due to this incident.

Pierre-Louis Loubet and Esapekka Lappi resterted today under the regulations of Rally2 after their retirement on Friday.

Loubet reported a small issue with the power steering of his Puma at the end of Stage 10.

Lappi was the fastest driver in Stage 10, but he had two spins in Stage 11 and 12.
