Cyprus Rally - Saturday morning review, Lukyanuk crashes

Lukyanuk crashes out of ERC Cypus Rally lead


Alexey Lukyanuk has crashed out of the Cyprus Rally while leading the overall FIA European Rally Championship order, forcing him to retire and handing first place to Nasser Al-Attiyah.



ERC championship leader Lukyanuk held a 5.6 second advantage over Al-Attiyah heading into Saturday afternoon’s stages, but disaster struck when a cracked rim caused him to lose control of his Russian Performance Motorsport Ford Fiesta R5. Thankfully, Lukyanuk and co-driver Alexey Arnautov were unharmed after their crash.



Wevers Sport driver Juuso Nordgren arrived next on the scene, picking up a left rear puncture after taking avoiding action and hitting a rock.


“He was in the middle of the road and we had to over a very big rock. I don’t know what he hit but it was our only choice otherwise we would end up in the barrier,” Nordgren told ERC Radio at stage end.



“I think he just lost it and went to barrier with rear damage. We hit broken parts of his car [so as] not to hit the barrier or his car.”



Al-Attiyah now leads despite tribulations of his own through SS4, picking up a right rear puncture only 3 kilometres into the same test and nursing it to stage end.





Cyprus Rally SS4 delayed after earlier ERC stoppage




Stage four of the FIA European Rally Championship’s ongoing championship round on the Cyprus Rally has been postponed to 13h59 local time due to an earlier red flag.


Earlier on Saturday stage three was halted after ERC2 category competitor Andreas Psaltis ended up in a ditch, a steering failure sending his Mistubishi Lancer Evolution X into a ditch.


Psaltis’ stranded Lancer blocked passage for drivers behind him and though both he and co-driver Andreas Chrysostomou were fine after their off, stewards had to deploy a red flag to move his car aside.


As several ERC competitors were held for close to an hour at SS3’s start line before setting on their way, stage four has been postponed by 47 minutes to allow those affected to catch up.


Psaltis’ fellow ERC competitor Juan Carlos Alonso will resume ERC action at 13h59 as first car into Saturday afternoon’s re-run of Kellia.
