The LOTOS Rally Team driver cruised through the final Zagorzyce stage 4.6 seconds slower than Bryan Bouffier to finish up 46s clear.

Bouffier made it to the end of the final stage with the chewing gum fix for his radiator still intact, although he still needs to make it to the finish in Rzeszow on time.

There was final stage drama, with Jakub Brzeziński going off under pressure from Łukasz Habaj and losing fourth place to his fellow Ford Fiesta R5 driver.

Wojciech Chuchała took the ERC2 win in seventh overall despite a final-stage puncture, while Nikolay Gryazin secured the ERC3 victory in 13th overall.

An incident behind him for Łukasz Byśkiniewicz has led to the rest of the competitors being diverted back to Rzeszow without completing the stage.
