Another crash for Russian Alexey Lukyanuk

Lukyanak | RallySport Magazine | Australia's Best Rally Magazine

The accident prone career of Russian driver, Alexey Lukyhanuk, entered yet another chapter when he crashed out of the lead of the Rzeszow Rally, fifth round of the European Rally Championship.   

This came four months after a tragic test accident in Russia’s Pskov Oblast when, for unknown reasons, his car collided head-on with another testing car, in which the other co-driver died.  

In that accident Lukyanuk suffered heel, knee, pelvic and vertebrae bone fractures, as well as burns from the ensuing fire.

On this event he was fastest in Shakedown, then fastest on the first stage before rolling on the second.  

He said: “I still have some pain in the legs, hips and foot so am I fighting with it, but with adrenalin goes easier.”

On his two previous ERC rallies this year he crashed on the first and then won the second.
