This weekend, the World Rally Championship, the WRC, returned to the competition. On Croatia, one of the most anticipated events of the season takes place. Unlike the start of the competition two months ago that was under cold snow, this test will take place on a mixture of tracks, which have asphalt and some sections of dirt or mud.
One of those who suffered the changes of the line was Kalle rovanpera. The pilot suffered a tremendous overturn at the hands of the Toyota yaris. The beginning of the season was the one dreamed by Rovanpera, who at the age of 20 broke a record and became the leader of the youngest championship in the history of the WRC championship.
Rovanpera, along with his co-driver, came at full speed with his Toyota Yaris, from the team Toyota Gazoo Racing. In the fifth kilometer of the Croatian event, the Finn bit the grass outside the asphalt and quickly lost control of the car. In this way he went against the ravine, causing a strong overturn, in which fortunately there were no injuries to regret.

After two months of standing, the pilots returned to the competition and did it in a big way. In the first stage of the test, the results were surprising and generated great expectations in the fans of the category.
