    Huge congrats to Camacho/Calado and to the Vespas/Delta Team; they’ve waited a long time for this home win and they finally got it! Basso wasn’t able to respond to Camacho strong pace on the last section and finished 2nd. Silva was a brilliant P3, ahead of Campos and Tempestini. Pires won Gr.N and Soares, the local young hope, took 2wd win. Another great Madeira Rally, with a fantastic coverage from RTP Madeira; well done!

    Btw, PSA R5’s have finally become reliable cars (better late than never!). Probably this is their most successful year. Good for them, good for the sport!

    2. Giandomenico Basso/Lorenzo Granai – Hyundai i20 R5; + 15,6s
    3. João Silva/Rui Rodrigues – DS 3 R5; +1m41,7s
    4. Miguel Campos/António Costa – Skoda Fabia R5; +2m48,9s
    5. Simone Tempestini/Giovanni Bernacchini – DS3 R5; +3m50,7s

    Ive been following the ERC rally in Poland but it was good to see the end of this one live on RTP.

    I have also now watched quite a lot of the previous coverage via the RTP website as its available to watch anytime.

    There's a video on YT that appears to show the aftermath of an accident after the flying finish of one of the stages, hope everyone was ok as they appear to be having to re-assemble the officials gazebo

    I know the Belgian Wagemans went off after the FF (car with hamburger livery). Everyone was ok. Can you link the images?

    So is anyone surprised at how uncompetitive Lefebvre was? Yes I know he had a gearbox issue, but every stage he did complete he seemed to be a bit off the pace? And other WRC drivers who have competed in local events are generally consistently at least on the podium?

    As I wrote in the thread about Lukyanuk - no, that's not true. I used our ERC/IRC Barum rally as an example because I know it best - but there alone Lappi, Neuville, Mikkelsen, Novikov, Tänak, Breen or Abbring have never achieved podium even though some started more than once there. You can take Ypres where for example Grönholm or Kankkunen failed etc. Every event requires some experience and being a very good driver isn't always enough to beat the lack of it.
