At the first stage Roger finished in 14 place, 1.44sc after the leader, the 2nd stage was canceled due to too many people around the stage, in the 3rd stage Roger finished in 11 place, which bring him up to 11th in the junior s-1600 class. in stage no-4 Roger finished in 6 place which moved him to 7th in the class.
Roger Feghali stated after SS2: "the car is very good but it is hard to set it up. I am quite satisfied."
He added: "Our Objective is to finish the rally, because it is important for our debut in the WJRC."
Roger Feghali is now 25th over all.
