Thierry Neuville retires from Kenya Safari Rally

Neuville was forced to retire form the Safari Rally in Kenya on Sunday

Nairobi, Kenya – Thierry Neuville, who had led the Safari Rally in Kenya in his Hyundai since Friday, was forced to retire on Sunday morning because of a broken right rear shock absorber.

The retirement came after SS14, the first of Sunday’s special stages, which was won by Toyota’s Sebastien Ogier.

Neuville, who held a 57-second lead overnight over Takamoto Katsuta, also in a Toyota, arrived at the end with a severely damaged right rear suspension, having lost one minute over 11 kilometres.

Neuville’s retirement leaves the field open for the two Toyotas with Katsuta four seconds ahead of Ogier.
