Neuville battled against three different Toyotas who all held lead at various points but one by one each had a puncture or other trouble. Hyundai had dramatic moments as Sordo's car burnt down on SS2 but in the end team scored 1-2 with Tanak in second overall position. Click picture to see larger version in a pop-up window
Takamoto Katsuta

Toyota had high hopes for their home event but all three main team drivers punctured - Ogier in Friday, Rovanpera in Saturday and Evans in Sunday.
