Andersson excluded in Turkey
Per-Gunnar Andersson finished first in the Junior class of Rally of Turkey but the rally stewards excluded the Suzuki driver following a breach in the Service Regulations.
Jozef Beres also received a similar penalty (although in his case,
the penalty is just 1:40) and loses his second place in the JWRC race standings this weekend. Beres drops to third position behind Conrad Rautenbach.
In a surprising turn of events, Urmo Aava is declared the JWRC winner in Turkey. It is the first victory for the Estonian in the Junior World Rally Championship. Aava also takes the lead in the championship standings with 30 points, one more than Andersson's total.
As for Andersson, the Swede will have to wait for the final round of the JWRC championship in Great Britain for his chance of getting a second title in the Junior championship.
