Rally - End of Leg 2

At the end of Day 2 of this year’s Rally Wales GB, Sebastien Ogier continued to pile on the pressure, commenting: “A good day so far, Jari is certainly pushing hard. I am on the limit, but always considering the conditions.”

In second place, Latvala looked a wee bit disconsolate coming out of Myherin: “I'm bitterly disappointed. I had a huge moment in there and I think I have lost at least 5 seconds if not more. It's incredibly slippery in there.”

At the end of 9 stages, Tony Jardine had a word: “Superb day! Amy got everything just right. I must stop cutting when she tells me not to! I'm just being a wally by not listening.”

The Internationals are back in the woods tomorrow with the first test of the day at Gartheiniog getting underway around 8.30 am.

There was no change to the National front runner line-up, even after the later times came in, so that still shows Euan Thorburn well in control ahead of Barry Groundwater and they’re due back in the forests tomorrow just after 12 noon for 3 more stages.
