WRC Overall Stays Steady @ 01:11 AM - The gap now is 14.7 back to Colin from Burns with 21.2 km to go. The clean stage is 10.60km stage, this is going to be tight stuff. The positions are Burns, McRae, Sainz, Rovanpera, Gronholm, Auriol - but Marcus is threatening both Sainz and Rovanpera.

Subaru First Repeated One @ 00:57 AM - Richard Burns was able to only loose .6 of a second on the first repeated stage. Remaining is one new and two repeated stages so this is going to be CLOSE!!
