Champion Sri Lankan rally driver Dinesh Deheragoda was forced out of the Wurth FIA Asia Pacific Rally Championship’s fourth round when his Ezy Racing Mitsubishi Lancer veered into a tree.
Deheragoda’s mishap contributed to a dramatic round 4, which saw Gaurav Gill drive his Team MRF Skoda Fabia S2000 to victory in Bahru, Malaysia.
Gill too suffered several some problems of his own on Day One including a spin, while many of his main competitors became unstuck by the treacherous conditions meaning crews lost valuable time or were sometimes forced into retirement.
