Roope romps clear in WRC3

Roope Korhonen is currently on course to claim his third WRC3 triumph in as many events after establishing a commanding lead in the category on Friday at Rally Italia Sardegna.

Korhonen who is co-driven by Anssi Viinikka, took the lead by winning Thursday evening’s super special stage in host city Olbia but was demoted to third by Ford Fiesta Rally3 rivals William Creighton and Laurent Pellier in SS3, Terranova.

The Finn hit back by reclaiming the lead as Creighton and Pellier sustained punctures in the following test and extended his advantage to 41.4sec over Creighton by close of play.

Pellier, who held third, was over five minutes further back ahead of Tom Rensonnet and Filip Kohn.
