Committed to the battle with Grigor Grigorov and Petar Sivov for the third position in the general standings, the champions for last year in the Bulgarian Rally Championship Tihomir Stratiev and Dobrin Borisov made a mistake in the passage of the second special stage of the day "Karandila". Marina Motorsport's crew spin 3-4 kilometers after The Tree crossroad and lost nearly 13 seconds. This put it away for 21.2 seconds from the last position on the podium.

In the front, Miroslav Angelov and Nedyalko Sivov (Skoda Fabia R5) kept a calm pace but managed to win the first two stages of the day. The Art Racing crew Yordan Atanassov and Yanaki Yanakiev managed to recover the broken rear differential of their Mitsubishi Lancer Evo IX and again returned to the top of the standings. They recorded second and third time in the stages "Mollova Gora" and "Karandila".

Excellent performance for the Greeks Karavassilis / Karliotis (Honda Civic Type R), who are the fastest foreign crew today. They took the 5th place at the "Mollova Gora" stage and the 4th place at the "Karandila", and thus managed to beat the Sonic Motorsport crew Szabo/Andreoiu (Ford Fiesta R2) for the eighth position in the overall standings.

One of the highly anticipated crews - Kiril Todorov / Georgi Avramov (Renault Clio RS) received technical problems, but for the moment managed to hold the 10th position. The difference between him and the 11th Hristo Atanasov and Marin Ivanov (Citroen C2, RC 4) is only 14.5 seconds and this gives an interesting final two stages.
