Angelo Medeghini and Barbara Capoferri on Subaru Impreza finished leg two of Wales Rally Great Britain
Angelo and Barbara Medeghini on Subaru Impreza Spec.C of the Kome Sport team finished the second leg in the forests of Wales. Today the day started with a sunny weather and temperature of about 10°C. Today's leg included 7 special stages, with a total of 103.86 competitive kilometers. There were three stages to be repeated twice, approximately 60 km north of Swansea, where the permanent service park is located, in the forests of the military ranges of Epynt. The crews then moved to Cardiff to run the las spectacular stage of the day inside the Millennium Stadium. The sliding roof of the arena, that can hold 50.000 spectators, has been closed over the 1.10 km section, and this became the first indoor stage in the history of the WRC.
Today's leg has been quite positive and without problems for the Kome Sport crew. Angelo and Barbara Medeghini scored twice the second best Production time and one third best time.
"Today's leg was better then yesterday's one" said Angelo Medeghini "Weather conditions improved and therefore also the surface. The stages were almost all very fast and required a high concentration. The problem with the differential set up we had yesterday has been solved and we are happy with the car now. Because of yesterday's puncture we lost a lot of time, that is now difficult to recover. Tomorrow we have to confront the long stages and we we'll do our best"
The leader of Production Cars is Aki Teiskonen (Subaru) followed by Marcos Ligato (Subaru); Nasser Al-Attiya (Subaru); Hamed Al-Wahaibi (Subaru and Angelo Medeghini (Subaru).

SS Resolfen 29,39 km has few surface changes, with loose gravel and hard rocks. SS Margam 27.42 km it's also quite difficult, three surface changes, hairpin corners, a spectacular water splash and a flat out last section. The rally will finish at 2.00 pm with the arrival in Cardiff, where it began.
