ERC Junior U27 at Rally Islas Canarias : Sesks leads thrilling three-way battle

FIA European Rally Championship 2018: Round 2 of 8
Rally Islas Canarias: Leg one , 4 May 2018





Mārtiņš Sesks leads the race for success in the Pirelli-supported ERC Junior Under 27 category albeit by a scant 0.7s over championship pacesetter Diogo Gago with Rally Team Spain’s Efrén Llarena 3.3s behind as 4.0s covers the top three.



 Llarena briefly led early in the morning loop, but wore out his tyres from pushing in SS1 and dropped to fifth one stage later. Sesks saw his chance and jumped from third to first immediately, but Azores winner Gago capitalised on Sesks’ inexperience on Tarmac to move into first place after SS4.




Though Gago edged further ahead in SS5, Artenara’s thick fog shook up the order in SS6. Much like the morning’s tricky conditions had favoured Sesks, the ADAC Opel Rallye Junior Team driver took advantage to recoup 3.8s over Gago during SS6’s 23 kilometres and retake the lead.



All eyes were firmly fixed on Llarena however, who was fastest across all three of Friday afternoon’s full length stages to regain 11.7s on Sesks ahead. Simon Wagner had no answer for Llarena’s irresistible pace, but remains fourth in class regardless thanks to jumping Sesks’ Opel team-mate Tom Kristensson.



Even being held up by an ailing Sergei Remennik in SS6 – whose powersteering had failed – didn’t stop him from increasing his advantage, sitting 8.4s ahead of fifth-placed Kristensson and 17.8s behind Sesks.



Roberto Blach and Wagner’s new Saintéloc Junior team-mate Miika Hokkanen are sixth and seventh respesctively, while Roland Stengg, Dominik Brož and Catie Munnings complete the top 10.



But Mattia Vita retired when engine failure caused his PEUGEOT to briefly catch fire. Newcomer Florian Bernardi, meanwhile, is clear of his ERC Junior U27 opposition in ERC3 at the wheel of a Renault Clio R3T.
