Former winner of the Rally Vinho da Madeira, Vítor Sá, with a Citroën DS3 R3T, went down to the 16. th position in absolute terms, but still keeps the lead amongst the drivers racing in front wheel driving cars. He is followed in second place by Rui Jorge Fernandes, in a Renault Clio R3T, now 7.6 seconds behind the leader. A little further away, Pedro Almeida comes third in this "category", but is still, nonetheless, the best in the RC4 group in a Peugeot Rally4.
André Silva regained a lot of ground and is, with his Peugeot 208 R2, the fastest amongst those driving RC4 atmospheric vehicles. Right behind is Miguel Caires in a Ford Fiesta R2T of the group RC4A. João Ferreira continues to do a good race with his Citroën C2 R2, but is quite closely followed by Adruzilo Lopes, in a more recent Peugeot 208 R2. Pedro Coelho is the best amongst the Classics, with a Ford Escort MK II and Bruno Coelho holds a lead of almost a full minute over his competitors in the Yaris NP Cup.
