Two Special Stages before the final of the Rally Vinho da Madeira, Miguel Nunes holdson to the leadership in a phase consisting of managing his lead. The podium provisional composition suffered a sudden change when Pedro Paixão, following some problems with his engine, retired at the start of the Special Stage 13. What was a distress to Paixão, became the opportunity for Alexandre Camacho to ascend to second place, pacing at a very strong rhythm, and also to "Pepe" López, the best in Câmara de Lobos 2, now predicted third.
Thinking only about the results in the Portuguese Rally Championship, Bruno Magalhães is now fourth, but has tracing at his heels João Silva, who has been listed amongst the fastest and who signed the best timing in his second passage by Ponta do Sol. Now close to sixth, José Pedro Fontes and Armindo Araújo keep interchanging, between advances and retreats, the difference between them. The retirement of Pedro Paixão also allowed for the passage of Filipe Freitas to the restrict group of the top ten, he who is still the best amongst RGT drivers.
