Korhonen in command

After six stages of the Jim Clark Rally, the positions in the MSA British rally Championship reflect exactly those at the finish of round one just a month ago, with Jukka Korhonen first, Alastair Fisher second and Tom cave third.

The result has surprised several of the front running crews, none more than Korhonen himself, who had stated his desire to just finish on the podium on his least favourite surface.

Despite being in a rush to get back to the Duns spectator stage for second time, he said, “I just dove neatly, but when we saw the times they were very good. It is only my third ever tarmac rally and Abbey St Bathans is the first tarmac stage that I have really enjoyed.”
