The third Regularity Stage (out of 4) on the menu of this very long 3rd day, between Aiguines and Trigance (29.2 km), was the first of the rally to be contested in the Var department and BMW did it again: Philippe Segura and Xavier Baux, in their BMW IX entered by Monaco Public Force (which brings together firefighters and carabinieri from the Principality), were the best again, as in RS9 on Mont-Ventoux at the end of the morning. This time, they finished tied with two other crews who had not yet had the honors of a special podium during this 6th E-Rallye Monte-Carlo: Christian Grimaldi and Jean-Baptiste Loty (Skoda Enyaq) on one hand, Bernard Heine and Laurent Secretin (VW ID3) on the other, entered by the Belgium VW Club. Once past the Trigance checkpoint, the 53 crews still had a SR11 to take, between Montauroux and Tanneron, before heading to Monaco. With the Kia EV6 of Jacques Pastor and Fulvio Gazzola still at the top of the overall standings, ahead of the BMW i4 of Olivier Campana and Nicolas Milanesio (2nd). And with the excellent female duo made up of Karel Colibert and Nathalie Zbinden (VW ID5) in 3rd place, thanks to their remarkable consistency at the front since the start on Wednesday.
