Russia’s Alexey Lukyanuk, navigated by Alexey Arnautov, is back in the hunt for a second FIA European Rally Championship title after taking his first win of 2019 on Rally Poland last weekend, scoring maximum points in his Citroën C3 R5. Finland’s ERC3 Junior graduate Jari Huttunen repeated his second-place finish from last year with a factory-supported Hyundai i20 R5, while Habaj Łukasz took third to maintain his championship lead in a Škoda Fabia R5.

Czech Republic’s Filip Mareš picked up a right-rear puncture on Stage 12 but despite losing nearly a minute, he still secured victory in the ERC1 Junior category and fourth place overall, putting him into class title contention as Great Britain’s Chris Ingram retired on the road section on Sunday with a water leak. Behind him, Sweden’s Mattias Adielsson wrapped up a first ERC1 Junior podium finish, ahead of Marczyk, who completed the class top three in ninth overall.

Argentina’s Juan Carlos Alonso scored a “perfect” victory in the FIA European Rally Championship’s ERC2 category on Rally Poland in a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo X, increasing his points lead over title rival Zelindo Melegari.

Estonia’s Ken Torn cemented his status as an FIA ERC3 Junior Championship title contender with his second consecutive class win on Rally Poland aboard his Ford Fiesta R2T19, beating new points leader from his Canadian rival Sindre Furuseth in a Peugeot 208 R2.
