Suninen takes WRC 3 honours in Italy

Finland’s Teemu Suninen spoiled hopes of a home win in WRC 3 at Rally Italia Sardegna when he headed a trio of Italian drivers into Sunday’s finish.

Suninen drove Citroën’s DS 3 R3T to a comfortable victory, outlasting three crews from the ACI Team Italia young driver training scheme.

He won by more than 15 minutes from Andrea Crugnola, with Fabio Andolfi in third, a further five minutes in arrears.

Crugnola led after the opening leg in his Renault Clio R3T but retired on Saturday with a water leak in his engine. He was joined on the sidelines by Andolfi, who rolled his Peugeot 208 R2 and Suninen, who stopped with mechanical problems after pushing his car into the finish of SS15.

All restarted today and Suninen eased through the final four stages to take maximum points.
