Rallying: McRae clear of world champion

Click to follow
Colin McRae is on course for his second successive victory in the Rally of New Zealand after dominating the second day of the world championship event. The Scot won the first five special stages in his Subaru Impreza to stretch his overnight lead over the world champion, Juha Kankkunen, to 2min 9sec. He needs only to keep going through today's eight special stages to repeat last year's victory. In the Ulster Rally, Malcolm Wilson led from the start to score his third British Championship success of the season and give himself a chance of the title.
