Horsey in top ten on day two

Young Kenyan rally driver Peter Horsey has survived a difficult second day of WRC Rally Portugal and enters the final leg firmly inside the top ten in the Production Class Category at the wheel of his Pirelli Star Drive Mitsubishi Evo X!

Horsey, along with Ugandan co-driver Moses Matovu, has enjoyed a relatively trouble free rally so far. Day 2 saw the Mombasa born son of former African Rally Champion David Horsey battling with fellow Pirelli Star Drive recipient Nicholai Georgiou and ended the day very pleased with his performance; today was good, although it was as rough as yesterday on the second pass at least I knew what to expect. We had an issue with the intercom for two stages which resulted in one small overshoot but apart from that it has been a good day!

As well as holding a top ten class result Horsey and Moses have also moved into the top forty overall with a further five stages to tackle on Sunday. The day is split into two, with two long stages each run twice before a final blast through the stadium super special at approximately 2pm local time.
