Six-time World Rally Champion, Sebastien Ogier, had a lucky escape on Monday when a helicopter he was riding in had to make an emergency landing. Ogier was with Scott Martin (Elfyn Evans' co-driver) and Benjamin Veillas in Greece, where they were participating in a pre-Rally Turkey test in a Toyota Yaris WRC. On the outskirts of the Glyfada golf course, the helicopter suffered a technical breakdown a few seconds after takeoff.
