Sousa Sees Out the Day Unscathed

Sousa Sees Out the Day Unscathed

The afternoon passes of the Duero Valley stages were a real test for the crews, and the thick fog that descended on the stages made things even trickier.

Event leader Bernardo Sousa set two fastest times on the repeat passes seeing out the day 53.5sec ahead of Osian Pryce who leads Finnish pilot Max Vatanen by nearly another two minutes.  French youngster Nicolas Ciamin finds himself in fourth overall but a good ten minutes off the pace.

Pryce set the fastest time on SS14 which means the Welshman has three so far.

Jon Armstrong of Northern Ireland who joins the Trophy after receiving the Vatanen Touch Award in 2015 has been scoring fourth and fifth stage places all day, and even a second fastest on the final stage of the day. He’s desperately trying to gain a sure footing after a difficult start to his campaign.

Young but passionate pilot Oscar Solberg continues to soak up the experience as he will struggle to make an impact after his early retirement yesterday.

The iconic stages of Fafe lie ahead tomorrow and regardless of experience the crews will need to be switched on and ready for the challenges ahead.
