WRC Rallye Deutschland: Neuville's Hyundai repairable, will start

Hyundai number one driver Thierry Neuville gets green light to start Rallye Deutschland in his i20 WRC - despite massive crash in shakedown
Thierry Neuville will be able to start Rallye Deutschland on Friday, Hyundai has said, despite his heavy crash in the shakedown.

“We're happy to confirm that @thierryneuville's i20 #WRC will be repaired and it will be at the start of @WRCGermany tomorrow!” Hyundai tweeted.

There had been some doubt about the Belgian's participation after he rolled his i20 WRC multiple times this morning on his third run through the 4.60 kilometre Konza shakedown test. Neuville and co-driver Nicolas Gilsoul were both unhurt.
