Casey Currie capitalised on a stage spent on the attack with his teammates and the mishaps of "Chaleco" López to seize the overall lead.

"We all stuck together today and we had a plan and it worked. The longest day of the rally is now behind us and, phew, I feel good. We had one puncture today that we probably lost three or four minutes to, but overall it was a great day. Gerard helped me in the sand dunes and really pushed hard. We knew that this rally is far from over. We had all three cars together all day, we pushed phenomenally hard and it all worked out. I really just gotta get up to the two teammates for today's stage because without them I don't think we would've had the pace. Five more days, we just gotta keep pushing the way we are. Last night Ricky Brabec and Andrew Short came in the motorhome and kicked me in the pants and told me I gotta get my shit together."
