Lukyanuk edges closer to victory

PRESS RELEASES

Alexey Lukyanuk remains the leader in the overall classification of the CNP ASFALISTIKI Cyprus Rally 2016 after the morning two stages of the final day of the rally. With Arnautov by his side, the Belarusian duo are pushing their Ford Fiesta R5 to its limits through the repeat of the Friday night stages, widening the gap even further from second-place Marijan Griebel. Ralfs Sirmacis, who like Griebel is behind the wheel of a Skoda Fabia R5, steadily follows the two leading crews in third place, more than 2 minutes away from the top.

The dynamic duo from Hungary of David Botka and Peter Szeles hold onto fourth place with their Citroen DS3 R5, further widening the gap to the fifth-placed crew of Demosthenous and Laos who are currently leading the Cypriot crews in their Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 9. Demosthenous seems mostly interested in holding on to the lead amongst the local crews, instead of catching Botka with their gap now being just above 20 seconds. That being said, the local crews behind fifth place are having a scrap of their own with «Chips Junior»/Chrysostomou and Zenonos/Christofi with a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 9, in sixth and seventh place overall. The difference between them is just 4.9 seconds with things looking to heat up in the final two stages of the CNP ASFALISTIKI Cyprus Rally 2016.
