  • To say that at the start of the week, Kalle Rovanperä and Janne Halttunen (Toyota) thought they were having a vacation weekend! It was before Sébastien Ogier and Vincent Landais do not withdraw due to an accident during reconnaissance. A few days later, the two-time reigning world champions won the Rally Poland.
  • Toyota secures the double thanks to second place taken by Elfyn Evans. The Welshman was slowed down on Saturday following a loose tire.
  • At M-Sport Ford, we are once again relying on the talent ofAdrien fourmaux and Alexandre Coria. The French duo climbs to the 3rd step of the podium; This is their third podium of the season after Sweden and Kenya at the start of the year.
  • Latvian rookie Martins Sesks (M-Sport Ford) made a clear debut aboard the Ford Puma Rally1 (without hybrid system). The vice-champion ERC 2023 finished 5th without panicking while his more experienced rivals picked up the pace during the rally.
  • He was involved in the fight for victory until the start of the last stage. The experienced Andreas Mikkelsen (Hyundai) was trapped by trying to put pressure on Rovanperä by hitting the side. With a flat right rear tire, bruised bodywork and a broken hybrid system, the Norwegian finished the Rally Poland pitifully in 6th place. Grégoire Munster (M-Sport Ford) and Takamoto Katsuta (Toyota) finished 7th and 8th.
  • In WRC2, success went to Sami Pajari (Toyota). The Finn collects a second victory in a row after Sardinia. The first Frenchman, Pierre-Louis Loubet (Skoda), is 6th.

The next round will take place in Latvia, from July 18 to 21.
