Meeke holds the guy in front of the title contenders

The British command a tight battle ahead of Neuville, Tanak and Ogier. Spectacular Jan Solans, leader in the junior category.


Kris Meeke leads in front of the three title contenders. The Briton has gone out for all in the rally of his country, and dominates the classification mediated the first stage. Of course, with Thierry Neuville, Ott Tanak and Sebastien Ogier glued to his heels, in his case playing more than a simple victory in the penultimate last World Cup. A party to which they also wanted to join Jari-Matti Latvala, which is third.

The typical conditions of the Rally of Great Britain have accompanied the participants on the first morning of competition. Water and mud on the roads of Wales, which skate as if there were ice. Meeke has defended the lead despite suffering a spin, but his partner in Toyota Tanak has thrown into a tromba after the seconds lost in the first superspecial. Neuville was uncomfortable with the car on the first leg of the day, in which Ogier also lost time when entering past a curve, but none yields, so he predicts a weekend of heart attack. Elfyn Evans won the first leg, but in the second he gave 43 seconds to get out and leave a wheel touched, off the battle.

The one who is giving the chest is Jan Solans, who has come out for all, winning the first two specials and placing himself at the top of the junior category, although with only 4 tenths on the leader and main rival in the fight for the title , Tom Kristensson, after section 4.
