Katsuta moves up second after taking new time for SS7 incident in Kenya

The stewards of Safari Rally Kenya gave to Takamoto Katsuta new time for Stage 7 after his getting caught into Craig Breen's dust.

More specifically, Craig Breen stopped for a first time in Stage 7 for unknown reason, but he managed to get moving again in that stage which means that the following driver, Takamoto Katsuta, had a poor visibility due to the dust.

However, the problem did not stop there for the Toyota driver as Breen went off the road 18,1 Kilometers into Stage 7 and stopped again due to the fact that the steering of his Puma was damaged meaning that he was not able to finish the stage. In addition to that, his Puma was blocking a little the road, so Katsuta had to slow down to be able to continue to pass the parked Puma.

Therefore, Katsuta and Toyota addressed to the stewards who decided to give a notional time to the Japanese driver after their having examined this incident.

Finally, it must be mentioned that Katsuta was holding second position before the start of Stage 7 while he dropped fourth after this incident, but he is now second again with this decision.
