The favorite Yordan Atanasov is out of the battle

Miroslav Angelov is the new leader of Rally Bulgaria

The hopes of Yordan Atanasov and his co-driver Yanaki Yanakiev to win this year rally Bulgaria are gone after gearbox problem in SS6 „Аladzha monastery 2″. The leaders in competition dropped out of the stage.

“II want to apologize to the city of Varna, to my colleagues, to the sponsors and partners and most of all to the fans,” said reservedly Atanasov . But he is very disappointed because minutes before, in the Service Park in Albena he said he was pleased with the three stages (of which won two) and while in the segment “Kozichino” made a few mistakes, has started to be more careful and intended to keep leadership.

After the fail of Atanasov, Miroslaw Angelov and Nedyalko Sivov (Skoda Fabia R5) are the new leaders. The crew of „Megaport” won SS4 and SS5 and their lead is 38.6 seconds. Second place is for Dimitar Iliev and Krum Donchev and third is the crew of the Bultrans Rally Team – Hristo Atanasov/Marin Ivanov (Citroen C2).
