Like a year ago, Marc Roura Blazquez is still the main protagonist, dominating far and wide with 8 best times out of 10 timed trials. But precisely in the last selective sector, on the Tagliamento he gets blocked due to the breakage of the front axle shaft of his Nissan Navara Pick-up, shaken by the crossing of the fords.
The Russian Boris Gadasin (same as Nissan) passes and wins with the merit of having always tried to counter the tread. Second place went to the Hungarian Sandor Kis (Autoport Evo4) and third to the Portuguese Alexandre Re (Nissan Pathfinder). The fifth place overall for Angelo Montico (Mitsubishi Pajero) was exceptional, practically on his debut on four wheels.
