Suzuki driver P-G Andersson leads after the second day of the Rally of Turkey! Leg two was without the torrential rain that characterised the opening day, but conditions remained extremely slippery. An action-packed seven stages saw five fastest times for the Suzuki drivers, but also a roll for Guy Wilks and a remarkable change of fortune for Andersson, who started the day seventh. Three Suzukis are on the provisional podium, and there are four Suzukis in the top eight points-scoring positions.

   

P-G Andersson (1st in JWRC after SS16)
"I always knew that things could change quickly in the JWRC, but this has probably been the most dramatic example yet! After losing time with a puncture yesterday, I just concentrated on keeping everything clean today and not making any mistakes, in order to give myself the best possible chance of winning the championship. The car has been perfectly reliable all day, despite some extreme conditions: wet weather, bright sunshine, and even some traces of snow! I can't help thinking about the title, but that is not going to distract me."

Guy Wilks (5th in JWRC after SS16)
"It all happened for us today. We had a front-left puncture on the first stage that we were forced to stop and change, which cost us nearly two minutes. That still left us in the lead, but we rolled on SS13 after tripping over some deep ruts in a corner. Some marshals pushed us back onto our wheels, but we then had a rear puncture due to the bodywork rubbing against the tyre. The main thing is that we managed to get the car back to service, where our mechanics did an absolutely fantastic job to put the car back together. Iユm not too disheartened as we are still in fifth place, and as we saw today, absolutely anything can still happen."

Nobuhiro 'Monster' Tajima, team principal:
"After another dramatic day, P-G is actually in a position to win the championship here in Turkey if the results stay as they are. This is unlikely though, as things rarely stand still in the Junior World Rally Championship! The only thing we can control is our own performance, so our drivers need to stay very concentrated on the last day..."
