PG Andersson heads Malaysian Rally
Sweden’s PG Andersson holds the lead in the Malaysian Rally, the fourth round of the Asia Pacific Rally Championship.
Driving a factory Proton Satria S2000, Andersson heads India’s Gaurav Gill in the MRF Skoda Fabia S2000, with Perth-based Scotsman Alister McRae in the other factory Satria in third.
Championship leader, Australia’s Chris Atkinson, sits sixth despite some major technical issues with his MRF Skoda.
“Tough day at the office, had an early lead, and looked to be on the right tyre. Then had a pipe burst and lost all the coolant,” said Atkinson on Twitter.
“Trying to make it back up higher into the points. Making progress but lost a bit when the Power Steering failed.”
Gill was also fortunate to complete the day after colliding with a tree early in the day.
The rally concludes tomorrow.
