As expected the long stages in the Rift Valley and Elementaita Lake area will be even tougher than this morning in the repeat afternoon run in soaring heat.

 

 

After a convincing 1-2 at mid day service, Fiat now lost Umberto Scandola with an overheated engine! The extend of the damage and if the second car could be effected by similar problems can not be identified until the cars return to service. For now Scandola has retired while his team mate Andrea Navarra is still in a clear lead with local Mistubishi driver Sammy Aslam 2nd.
