No1: LUKYANUK Alexey - ARNAUTOV Alexey
“In a very narrow part between two trees I was driving carefully but there was a lot of dust and I touched the tree with the rear.”

Νο2: MAGALHAES Bruno - MAGALHAES Hugo
“Difficult, in few places difficult for the concentration. We have lost lot of time.”

Νο3: HERCZIG Norbert - FERENCZ Ramon
“Very good warm-up for me. This stage was very difficult, we had clean line, sometimes too hard on brakes, but it was OK.”

 

Νο4: GRZYB Grzegorz - WROBEL Jakub

Νο6: BRYNILDSEN Eyvind - ENGAN Veronica
“It wasn't bad. It felt like we have only front drive but it's maybe only so slippery road. Lot of time in the limiter.”

“Difficult, we tried to enjoy but it's hard because we messed up the whole rally yesterday. Good feeling, lot of grip changes.”
