Former world championship star Francois Delecour was seventh in a Kronos-run Peugeot. The Frenchman had a spin on Saturday's second stage and then lost more ground with a puncture.
Czech driver Jaroslav Orsak took eighth despite a scare prior to the final stage when his Mitsubishi refused to fire after he stopped to rectify a throttle glitch. Jaromir Tarabus overcame electrical and intercom gremlins to finish ninth with Pavel Valousek completing the top 10 after Jan Cerny dropped out with a broken differential on the final stage. Rallying legend Stig Blomqvist finished 12th.
Meanwhile, promising Austrian Hannes Danzinger recovered from a penultimate stage puncture to win the ERC 2WD Championship classification in a Renault Clio R3. Hermann Neubauer had been in contention until he retired with a damaged wheel.
The ERC now continues next month with round two, Rally Liepâja-Ventspils in Latvia, running from 1-3 February.
