Kalle Rovanperä replaces Sébastien Ogier in the Rallye de Pologne

After the announcement of Sébastien Ogier’s withdrawal from the Rally Poland following his accident during reconnaissance on Tuesday morning, Toyota announced that it was considering an alternative solution in order to have three crews at the start of the event on Thursday.

And it was late in the evening that the panel of commissioners announced that they had authorized Kalle Rovanperä to line up alongside Elfyn Evans and Takamoto Katsuta in a Yaris. The reigning world champion, on a partial program this season like Ogier, will have the opportunity to carry out reconnaissance of the special stages, with his co-driver Jonne Halttunen, Wednesday and Thursday early in the afternoon, after the shakedown scheduled at 10 hours.
