WRC Rally Italy: Thierry Neuville puts Hyundai in early lead

World Rally Championship racer Thierry Neuville won the Rally race on June 8th 2017. He was driving a car sponsored by Hyundai. He won the race with a time of two minutes and eighteen seconds. The second place finisher was only 0.2 seconds behind him. The race was really close!

Key Takeaways:

  • Thierry Neuville won’t first place in the WRC Rally in Italy.
  • Even with a stuck wiperblade Ittiri Arena his time was still enough to win 2nd place.
  • The three Toyotas of Jari-Matti Latvala, Esapekka Lappi and Juho Hanninen all struggled on the opener, filling the immediate spots outside of the top 10 respectively.

“Last Year’s winner Thierry Neuville takes the lead on Rally Italy’s opening night.”
