Ireland - leg 3: Irish win puts Loeb back on top.

Subaru's Chris Atkinson was also classified thanks to the SupeRally, despite having to sit out the final day due to an internal engine problem. He picked up two manufacturers' points as a result.

As for the retirees, in addition to Gronholm, fellow 'works' runners, Xavier Pons and Manfred Stohl both failed to get to the end.
