IRC: Andreucci leads in Sardinia

Like Arminen, Luigi Ricci is also chasing Italian Gravel championship points and is in eighth place, despite not being happy with his driving on the Monte Lerno stages. The Brescia pilot has sampled several different cars this season but is tackling his third event in a Subaru Impreza N14.

Italian Daniele Batistini is ninth in a Peugeot 207, one place ahead of Bruno Magalhaes, who came within eight seconds of going over the time limit following delays leaving the midday service while his Peugeot Sport Portugal team hurried to rectify a major brake problem. He picked up 2m30s in time penalties for his troubles and now faces the prospect of starting Sunday's stages first on the road because the top 10 finishing positions from day one are reversed for the final day.

A host of drivers will restart under SupeRally regulations on Sunday. They include Burcu Cetinkaya and Yazeed Al-Rajhi, who both failed to go the distance due to mechanical faults. Andreas Mikkelsen will also restart after a misheard pacenote caused him to roll his M-Sport Ford Fiesta S2000 on the opening stage. However, Franz Wittmann won't restart after rolling his Interwetten Racing 207.

Kaspar Koitla leads the IRC 2WD Cup in his Honda Civic Type R with Harry Hunt second in a Ford Fiesta R2, and Colin R Smith completing the top three in another Honda
