João Silva keeps the command of the classification among the users of two-wheel drive vehicles. In his debut with Peugeot 208 Rally4, the driver holds an advantage of 26.6 seconds over Rui Jorge Fernandes in a Renault Clio R3T and 34.1 seconds over Vítor Sá in a Citroën DS3 R3T. In the following positions are Ivo Sardinha, in a Peugeot 208 Rally4, Miguel Caires, driving a Renault Clio Rally4, and Renato Pita, in another Peugeot.
Also, in two-wheel drive cars but with rear wheel drive, Filipe Freitas and Paulo Mendes are still having a lot of difficulties with the alternative tyres, used and circuit tyres with tears, that they were forced to put on their Porsche 997 GT3 for this event. All the teams with cars that do not have all-wheel drive had a hard time with the weather conditions of wet found on the first passage through the Campo de Golfe.
