Kalle Rovanperä lands second FIA World Rally Championship in Greece

Twenty-year-old Kalle Rovanperä landed his second FIA World Rally Championship event win on Sunday afternoon after dominating EKO Acropolis Rally Greece.

The Finn led for virtually the entire four-day fixture on rocky mountain roads in central Greece to win by 42.1sec in a Toyota Yaris. The victory came two months after he became the youngest WRC winner in history in Estonia.

Ott Tänak finished second in a Hyundai i20 with championship leader Sébastien Ogier driving a measured rally to finish third in another Yaris, a further 29.2sec back. The Frenchman extended his points lead to 44 with three rounds remaining.

Rovanperä won the Wolf Power Stage to claim five bonus points. Elfyn Evans scored four points in second in another Yaris with Ogier taking three in third. Thierry Neuville secured two points in fourth in an i20 with Tänak netting the final point in fifth.
