Rally Croatia - 2nd Day - 2nd Loop: Rovanpera closes the door on charged Tanak for Croatia win

At the end of the second day, Kalle Rovanpera remains in top with Ott Tanak and Craig Breen following him.

Kalle Rovanpera is close to claim his second win of the season with one day remaining for the end of Rally Croatia, but he increased his gap from the second Ott Tanak to 19,9 seconds despite the fact that he dropped time in Stage 13. The Finn driver set the fastest time on the last stage of Saturday.

Ott Tanak will chase Rovanpera for the victory of Rally Croatia on Sunday and managed to reduce his gap from the first place at the end of SS13 despite the fact that he reported a gear issue at the end of that stage. However, the Estonian driver fixed that problem for the next one stage.

Craig Breen remains in third position overall, but he dropped time in comparison with the fourth Thierry Neuville.

Neuville comes right behind the M-Sport driver and their gap is at 4,9 seconds. However, he reported an engine issue at the end of Stage 13 and in fact he lost the 40% of the power towards the end of the stage.

Elfyn Evans completes the top five and his gap from the fourth place is at 49,9 seconds.

Takamoto Katsuta keeps his sixth position after the front left puncture he had in Stage 13.

Gus Greensmith, Esapekka Lappi and Pierre-Louis Loubet stayed out of trouble on Saturday afternoon.

Lappi was the fastest driver in Stage 13 and 14 despite the fact that tarmac is not his favorite surface.

Stage 15 was cancelled by the organizers for safety reasons.
