At 11:30 race-director Alexander Kovatchev made a special briefing for the results situation for the Cars, SSV and Trucks. Because yesterday´s stage was cancelled earlier than planned, the timekeepers needed to find a fair resolution. They find one – but there was a problem for those, who can´t finish the last driven round. So under the applause of the participants they announced a new rule for the timing: The finish is made virtually after 3.5 rounds, so all standings at this point (inkluding missing CP´s) are now the stage-result. “This is not the best solution for some fast participants, but the best solution for all participants,” Kovatchev said.
