3
flagPaddon Hayden - Marshall Sebastian
"It's a difficult stage, a bit of narrow, a bit of twisty, a bit of fast. Tricky with the notes, you could be faster. A good bit of stage to know what the car is doing."
4
flagGross Georg - Mõlder Raigo
"Surprisingly good. We had to work the wheel a bit in the narrow parts."
5
flagGorban Valeriy - Larens Sergey

flagTänak Ott - Järveoja Martin

2
flagBreen Craig - Martin Scott
"We did a mistake with the tyres, but it's a test and that's what the rally is about for us. It was nice."

"Couple of jumps were really on the edge. On the limit on some corners."
8
flagVanagas Benediktas - Čepulis Mindaugas
