Yanagisawa continues to lead China Rally

Hiroshi Yanagisawa has had his lead cut down to 20 seconds, after Cody Crocker took time off him in the first 4 stages of Day 2. Two stages remain and both drivers will be going all out to win.

Behind Dean Herridge has been setting good times this morning and holding third, while Takuma Kakada had a puncture and then went off the road. The Japanese driver got going again, just in front of a chasing Rifat Sungkar.

The weather has improved dramatically with sunshine and wind drying out the roads, after two days of rain.
