Diogo Gago put his local knowledge to great use, further extending a 40s lead from Friday to secure FIA ERC Junior U27 victory by over a minute aboard his PEUGEOT 208 R2.



Mārtiņš Sesks had been dueling with Gago for victory on Friday, but come Saturday he was instead looking backwards, fending off Efrén Llarena who had suffered a puncture and lost one minute the day before.


A gearbox problem would settle their battle, Sesks losing first and second gear late on during Tronqueira’s rally-ending test and dropping him behind an ecstatic Llarena.



"Many thanks to the whole team, to this project of the Rally Team Spain, to the sponsors and to all the fans who from home, and some from here too, have supported us and followed every kilometre. This second place is yours too!" said Llarena.



Gago said: “We did it and I’m so happy with this victory. We work really hard to win here. I’m proud of my team, my sponsors and my co-driver.”



Simon Wagner looked all set to pick up fourth place, but myriad of technical gremlins ground his car to a halt shortly after leg two’s penultimate stage.


Powersteering failure coupled with a loose gear level made finishing SS14 difficult, before a broken engine and gearbox mountings sidelined Wagner with 22 competitive kilometres left.



Dominik Brož moved up to fourth place as a consequence, as Wagner’s Saintéloc Junior team-mate Catie Munnings took fifth.



Mattia Vita retired when his front-left wheel nuts failed on Friday’s first visit to Sete Cidades, but returned on Saturday to claim sixth.
