Craig Breen leads Rally Liepaja - Ventspils | ERC - 2013

At the end of the opening leg of the rally, Craig Breen leads the rally by a little over 6s to Finnish Jari Ketomaa, and Francois Delecour another 6s further in third overall.

Jari Ketomaa was the fastest through the qualification stage this morning and Craig Breen all the way down at 6th and the turn around was a bit of a surprise for the top field, but the Irish got the talent. Delecour's third is something extraordinary, as he had to drive through SS3 by holding the door closed which had latching/locking issues.
