Tough Kedong stage claims Elfyn, Sordo


Sordo and co-driver Borja Rozada managed to get their i20 back to the side of the road but sadly joined Elfyn in the list of big-name casualties. 

Quotes from top drivers

Car 1. OGIER/INGRASSIA

“Not so much speed actually. It was very slippery and sandy. Absolutely no grip. We had

to make it through.”

Car 33. EVANS/MARTIN

“Very slippery and very narrow and difficult to see with dust on the screen.”

Car 11. NEUVILLE/WYDAEGHE

“This is something. The ruts were much deeper than on the recce. I struggled a bit with

the understeer. The road is so narrow and it is so difficult to find the right line. I tried to

optimise the traction but it was not an easy stage to start with.”

Car 8. TÄNAK/JÄRVEOJA

“It’s tricky. The washer is on all the time with the dust.”

Car 69. ROVANPERÄ/HALTTUNEN

“It’s really difficult. I have not driven in that type of stage before. I had no grip at all in

these really narrow places. You just try and get through it.”

Car 18. KATSUTA/BARRITT

Stalled in a corner. “I don’t know why. I used the clutch and immediately the engine did

not have power and I had no power and the engine stopped. There’s a long way to go. It’s

fine.”

Car 44. GREENSMITH/PATTERSON

“For me, it felt so rough already. It’s better to be at the front, for sure. Need to do some

work to get the car to turn a bit better.

Car 16. FOURMAUX/JAMOUL

“It’s really slippery, to be honest. Much more than we expected. To protect the car you also

need a stiff set-up. But I think we are too stiff. No grip. We were short in-service time, but the guys did a good job. All is okay…!”

Car 2. SOLBERG/JOHNSTON

“It was a bank after a dip (impact registered on an FIA sensor). It was a very difficult

stage. Much worse than I expected.” The car is reportedly crabbing quite badly away from the stop control.

Car 37. BERTELLI/SCATTOLIN

“I think it was an adventure, so slippery. The ruts were so deep, so we just went through.”
