The third speed test of the Kenyan World Rally Championship, the 32.68 km long Kedong test, ended the hopes of both Elfyn Evans (Toyota) and Dani Sordo (Hyundai) to fight for the victory in the Safari Rally.
First, the race ended for Evans, who, just before the end of the test, ran against a rock and broke the suspension of a Toyota machine. A little later, Toyota chief Jari-Matti Latvala confirmed that the rally for the Welshman is over today.
“He had a big rock in the right corner that broke the suspension. He tried to repair it, but it was too complicated. It was good that it happened less than a kilometer before the finish – we should get the car from there quickly,” Latvala said via WRC All Live.
