In the Junior WRC, Per-Gunnar Andersson took command this morning and hasn't looked threatened since. His main rivals - Guy Wilks, Daniel Sordo and Kris Meeke have all hit problems, and consequently he leads by over 2 minutes. Urmo Aava and Luca Betti currently lead the chasing pack in second and third respectively.
The second leg tomorrow [Saturday] is again based south of Lamia, but further west. It ventures along the slopes of Mount Iti and Mount Giona, stretching south towards the rally's former base in Itea. Drivers face two identical loops of four stages covering 122.72km, split by a midday service back in Lamia. They leave the town at 08.30 and return for the final overnight halt at 19.05.
