Defending champions David Bogie and Kevin Rae powered to their third win from three events on the Coltel Granite City Rally.
Bogie and Rae ended the event 33 seconds ahead of Euan Thorburn and Paul Beaton, while Bruce McCombie and Michael Coutts took the final championship podium spot.
"Obviously I'm very happy with the result, but we struggled with wrong tyre choice on the last two stages,” said Bogie. “If Euan hadn't overshot at a hairpin on the last stage, it could have been really close.”
