Rally Croatia Update - Ogier in RTA

A bizarre road traffic accident between Sebasien Ogier's Toyota and another vehicle (View on YouTube) happened on a section of dual carriageway, with the impact causing damage to the co-driver's side of Ogier's Toyota Yaris World Rally Car. Both Ogier and co-driver Julien Ingrassia escaped uninjured but were forced to carry out repairs on the supermini, which was then cleared as safe to continue by FIA technical delegates.

Ogier led into the final day by 6.9 seconds but his advantage was trimmed by teammate Elfyn Evans to 4.2 seconds on stage 17 before losing top spot to the Welshman on the antepenultimate test. With one stage remaining - the 8.8-mile Zagorska Sela to Kumrovec power stage - Evans enjoys a slender 3.9 second lead over Ogier, with Hyundai's Thierry Neuville a further 4.1 seconds adrift in third place.
