33-year old Spanish driver, Dani Sordo, has been ruled medically unfit for competing on Rally Finland because of a back injury suffered in his pre-Neste Rally cash in the team’s 2016 version test car.  

He was entered by the Hyundai Motorsport Mobis N team in a NG i20 WRC, and will be replaced by Kevin Abbring.  

This will be Dani’s second WRC event missed through injuries.  He injured his ribs in a mountain bike accident before the Swedish Rally 2015, about 18 months ago.  

The pre Neste Rally test session, which was interrupted by the crash and the subsequent team investigation as to how a part appeared to fail on the car, is to be resumed the weekend before the start of the rally.
