Latvia’s Reinis Nitiss won race three and was ninth quickest and Sweden’s Kevin Eriksson was 10th. France’s Sebastien Loeb was side-by-side with Nitiss at the first corner of race three but dropped to fifth after turn one and had a close race with Latvia’s Janis Baumanis. Loeb was 18th quickest and Baumanis was 17th

Denmark’s Ulrik Linnemann was quickest in the FIA European Rallycross Championship for Super1600 and Norway’s David Nordgard was top in the FIA European Rallycross Championship for TouringCar.
