WRC2 hopeful López rolls out in Portugal

Pepe López’s hopes of fighting for WRC2 victory at Vodafone Rally de Portugal were dashed on Friday morning when he rolled his Ford Fiesta Rally2 in the day’s opening test.

López and co-driver David Vázquez arrived in Portugal fifth in the WRC2 championship standings and were looking to deliver a strong outing on their Ford Fiesta Rally2 debut.

However, the Spanish pairing ran wide on a left-hand bend in Mortágua, clipping the embankment on the outside of the road which flipped the car onto its side. The crew were unscathed in the accident but unable to continue.
