Jordan - day 3: First win of year for Hirvonen.

Gardemeister went out on the first day after a stone hit the bottom of his car and damaged the sump. He could not SupeRally. P-G also went out on day 1, going off the road in the first stage. Although he rejoined, he retired again on day 3, when he again crashed out.

Petter Solberg was another to crash out, with brake problems in the final stage on Saturday. He had also gone out on day 1 when he hit a rock and damaged the suspension on his Impreza. He did not re-start on day 3.

Urmo Aava also suffered after hitting a rock and damaging the suspension on his privately entered Citroen C4 WRC. He had been running solidly in the points and around 5th-6th throughout until the second stage on Sunday morning.

The FIA World Rally Championship now heads back to Europe next month and the next stop is Sardinia for the Rally d'Italia, another gravel event, which runs from May 15-18.
