Stobart VK M-Sport Ford driver Gigi Galli has withdrawn from the Rally of Turkey because of ill health.
The Italian decided not to restart this morning on the advice of his team doctor, who treated him yesterday for exhaustion and dehydration.
The Stobart team said Galli had been affected by the intense heat and demanding rally conditions during the previous two days and had been asked to rest and rehydrate.
Galli had been running third for much of Friday and Saturday’s competition, but dropped to eighth after his car suffered a turbo boost valve failure.
