Alexey Lukyanuk wins ERC Rally Estonia ({{commentsTotal}})


Estonians missed out on the highest podium spot on home soil as Russia's Alexey Lukyanuk (Mitsubishi) took first place in auto24 Rally Estonia, the pinnacle of Estonia's rallying calendar, in front of Poland's Kajetan Kajetanowicz (Ford; +12,7) and Estonia's Rainer Aus (Mitsubishi; +1.07,0).

Timmu Kõrge (Peugeot; +1.23,7), Siim Plangi (Mitsubishi; +2.06,9) and Raul Jeets (Ford; +3,36,2) rounded up the top six, whereas Martin Kangur (Ford) and Karl Kruuda (Citroen) pulled out of the race due to a crash and mechanical problems respectively.

Lukyanuk took an early lead in his Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X, only temporary losing it after receiving a 10-second penalty for jumping the start on stage 6.

An European Rally Championships newcomer for 2014, Rally Estonia was included in the ERC calendar for the second year running. In 2014, it was declared the FIA ERC Rally of the Year for innovation and excellent organization.

Auto24 Rally Estonia 2015 included 16 stages mostly on the jump-coated gravel roads of southern Estonia.
