Esapekka Lappi took the lead at the start of the Rally MexicoMarch 8, 2019
The third stage of the 2019 World Rally Championship started on Thursday evening in the Mexican state of Guanajuato. After the opening ceremony, participants had to pass a short spectator special stage of 1.14 km in length. However, not everyone succeeded.
When it was the turn of the favorites of the championship Ott Tyanaka, Thierry Neuville and Sebastien Ogier, the organizers decided to cancel the DOP for security reasons. The reason was the springboard damaged when other participants jumped 100 meters before the finish.
In the end, the first numbers of Toyota, Hyundai and Citroen were credited with a conditional time of 1.01.2, as became the third leader of shakedown, Chris Mick. The gap from the holder of the best result of Esapekki Lappi was 0.6 seconds.
