The first three places for Hyundai at the beginning of Rally Ypres 2021


Local hero Thierry Neuville had an advantage in the shakedown today and deservedly recorded the best time, namely 4: 22.50, ahead of Ott Tanak with 0.8 seconds and Sebastien Ogier with 2.1 seconds.
In the first special stage today Reninge-Vleteren 1 with a length of 15.00 km the fastest were Ott Tanak / M. Jarveoja with Hyundai i20 Coupe WRC followed by Thierry Neuville / M. Wydaeghe also with Hyundai i20 Coupe WRC at 2.3 seconds.
Surprisingly good weather for the Irishman Craig Breen with navigator Paul Nagle again with Hyundai i20 Coupe WRC only 2.5 after Tanak.
The race starts in perfect conditions 22 degrees and light clouds - dry tracks.
Sebastien Ogier made minor mistakes, finishing on 6th position in stage 1.
In general, there are a lot of chicanes in the Ypres rally, where there is dirt on the tracks and it predisposes to errors in braking distances by the racers.
Rally Ypres 2021 continues, and for today a total of 8 special stages are planned.
