Siarhei Viazovich has won the day’s special. Behind the wheel of his Maz truck decked out in the colours of the MAZ-SPORTauto team which celebrated its 10th birthday last month, the Belarussian finished just 18’’ ahead of Dmitry Sotnikov, who won the first two stages. Anton Shibalov completed the special in third position, 1’16 behind.
Title holder Andrey Karginov was in the leading pack on the final section of the special, but lost several minutes and finished in fifth place, 3 minutes behind the day’s winner.
