During the first section Gorban kept the pace and his place in Top 5 of WRC 2. He had the 2nd time at SS3 (after Karl Kruuda).

However, Valery Gorban suddenly disappeared from the on-line timing at SS5. “Everything was good for on the first lap, but on the first special stage after the service, just three kilometers after the start, we hit some kind of stone in one of the corners, damaged the suspension, and left the race. The car is OK in general, so we restart tomorrow”, – said Vladimir Korsia about that. On Saturday, the participants are moving to asphalt – there are six special stages in the schedule, including the longest Escaladei, with length 50 km.
