Blissy (Ford Escort Mk II) also set two fastest stage times.

There is also an extremely close battle for third place, with four gamers separated by just 12 points.

MightyGoose currently holds third in the overall standings, just two points ahead of YarnBarn who moved from sixth to fourth after Spain. Leetindall is just two points further back in fifth, while banksy87 is still very much in contention for bronze, despite dropping from fourth to sixth.

Round 5 has automatically started, with competitors having until 4pm next Monday (1 June) to complete seven Rally Germany stages.

For the grand finale, this week competitors get to choose from a Ford Fiesta R5, Peugeot 208 R5, Mitsubishi Mirage R5, Volkswagen Polo GTI R5, Citroën C3 R5 or a Škoda Fabia R5.
