'Rocket' Suárez dominates at the start of the season

The Asturian leads the Sierra Morena Rally, the opening event of the Spanish Championship, despite having suffered a puncture in the first stage in Córdoba.


'Rocket 'Suárez flies low in the Cordovan sections. The Asturian rider has started the 2021 season strong and dominates the opening event of the Spanish Championship, the Sierra Morena Rally. Despite having suffered a puncture, he leads the classification after the first stage with his Skoda, ahead of the Hyundai of Surhayen Pernía and the Citroën of Jan Solans.

Of the four planned sections, only three could be disputed, as the second was canceled due to the emergency crane not arriving on time. Three stages in which Suárez imposed his law, despite the fact that in the second, Villaviciosa, suffered a puncture when a stone was found in the middle of the road.

Pernía, who already won in Córdoba in 2013 and was the best in the shakedown and the qualifying stage in the morning, remains in his wake, with Solans third, adapting to his new car and co-driver. The one who has fallen off the poster has been the other great favorite, Iván Ares, who suffered a breakage of the bearing in the first section and was forced to leave without almost doing kilometers.

In the second and final stage, there will be six stages and 88 timed kilometers, with the probability of rain according to the forecast.Classification
