Young and co-driver Malcolm Read were locked in battle with eventual winner Chinese-Taipei driver Lin Dewei – swapping the lead on each stage and with just seconds separating them. Unfortunately, without warning Young’s car lost power and he and Read were forced to pull over and retire.
With the Toyota C-HR fully repaired Young restarted on Day 2, winning all stages par one. Their efforts were enough to haul themselves back onto the leader-board and register enough points to win the FIA Asia Cup and FIA Junior Cup.
Young’s next event is WRC Rally of Australia, 14-17th November where he will drive an AP4 Peugeot 208 run by the Race Torque team, supported by Dunlop Japan and with co-driver Scott Beckwith.
