IRC CY SS7 @ 03:04 PM - 100% gravel, Al Attiyah with a lead of over 3min despite puncture. Well pointless event, really with so many drivers in problems.

10th= Posedias/Alexandrou, Mitsubishi, +2m21s3

IRC CY SS3 @ 08:30 AM - 100% gravel. Quite a mess really, the starting order is completely mixed up since the SS2 blockage and Kajto and even more Magalhaes suffer bad as a result for none of their fault. Al Attiyah wins stage and leads for now. Results after SS3:

IRC CY SS2 - Stage cancelled @ 07:17 AM - SS2 has been cancelled as car #16 (running 4th on the road) has retired with a mechanical issue and is blocking the road with already a few other cars stuck behind the blockage. Overall results are as off SS1.

IRC CY SS1 @ 06:37 AM - 75% gravel, 25% asphalt. Gryazin leads 0.1s from Al Attiyah. Magalhaes very angry, lost a lot of time driving in the dust of Bostanci, who had a puncture. Maybe Magalhaes' time will be corrected later. Results after SS1:
1st= Gryazin/Fedorov, Skoda, 12m46s2;
2nd= Al Attiyah/Baumel, Ford, +0s1;
3rd= Kajetanowicz/Baran, Ford, +10s1;
