Key Facts

  • Rovanpera led home team-mate Elfyn Evans by 15.2 seconds, his dominance on the first all-gravel event of 2022 capped off with a wheel-perfect run through the end-of-rally Power Stage which he also won to claim the full five points.
  • Rovanpera opened his account on Sunday with a fastest time on ‘Felgueiras’ to inch 2.7 seconds clear of Evans, and found another tenth of a second on the first run over ‘Montim’ to push it to 8.5 seconds.
  • The pair started the final leg 5.7 seconds apart and the Spaniard – on his first Rally1 outing – made his intentions clear by exerting real pressure to close to within 1.2 seconds of third at the end of the opening test despite revealing “I didn’t drive very good”.
  • Despite learning on the job, Sordo would not be denied and pulled it out of the bag on the Power Stage to snatch the last podium place by 2.1 seconds.
