Alexey Lukyanuk continues to increase his lead on the final round of the FIA European Rally Championship ahead of the event-closing Love Cyprus Golden Stage.

Wins on the first two stages of the day have stretched Lukyanuk’s advantage to just under two minutes.

Ralfs Sirmacis was second fastest on SS12 CYTANET Petrofani 2, but Marijan Griebel continues to occupy that position overall on his prize drive for becoming ERC Junior champion. The German has a margin of 45.9s over Sirmacis.

Dávid Botka remains in fourth place and has increased his gap over ERC2 leader Christos Demosthenous to 20.7s, but the gap between “Chips Junior” and Costas Zenonos in their fight for sixth has come down to 4.9s after a fourth-fastest time from the latter in SS12.

Crews now return to Nicosia for service before Love Cyprus Golden Stage 1 begins at 11h36 local time. A prize fund of 60,000 euros is available for the crews over the two final tests.
