Ketomaa snatches the lead from Breen, ERC - 2013 | Day 2


Jari Ketomaa managed to reverse the overnight deficit of 6.4s to take on the lead in Rally Liepāja-Ventspils by 12.1s over Craig Breen. Today's stage was of high-speed stages over ice and snow stages over Latvian gravel roads.

The turbocharged 1.6 Fiesta RRC motor is probably more suited and undoubtedly has more power than the S2000 spec 207, yet the Finn is nothing short of talent either. Breen lost like 12s in one particular stage today and since then couldn't manage to regain his loss of time to his rally rival, Ketomaa. Frenchman Francios Delecour slipped to 4th overall by the day's end, while Russian Alexey Lukyanuk is now 3rd overall, while Lithuanian, Vytautas Svedas is in 5th overall.
