Hunt closes on IRC 2WD Cup title triumph
Three minutes ahead of closest rival
Harry Hunt is three stages away from winning the IRC 2WD Cup after successfully completing Saturday’s opening loop of three stages of the FxPro Cyprus Rally this morning.
The 22-year-old from Britain, who only started his rallying career in 2009, just needs a point to secure the two-wheel drive prize.
After completing stage 11, which was shown live on Eurosport, Hunt said: “We’ve had no major problems although the middle stage was long and tiring.”
Hunt is currently almost three minutes ahead of closest rival, the Hungarian Honda Civic driver László Vizin.
