Hanninen rapid in Gran Canaria
But Meeke is still in the lead
Peugeot UK’s Kris Meeke still leads Rally Islas Canarias but it was Juho Hänninen who proved the star performer through the 24.85-kilometre Fontanales stage.
Hänninen, the Intercontinental Rally Challenge title leader, was five tenths of a second faster than Meeke to climb from fifth to second overall after two stages in his Škoda Fabia, 3.7s behind Meeke.
Hänninen’s Škoda team-mate Jan Kopecký was third fastest with Peugeot Sport Portugal’s Bruno Magalhães claiming the fourth best time.
