Finally he finished the weekend on the second position and moved his points to 116 which is more than enough for his 2014 season win.
Kevin Hansen Jr, started to dominate the weekend even from the first Heat. He won the first three Heats but on 4th he stuck outside the road after colliding Simon Olofsson. This result didnt effect him to join the semi finals but as he couldnt score the points he aimed, it was not enough to keep Eriksson from his season win. As he won the semi final race 2, he jumped to final race easily. But stucking in the traffic right after start, he couldnt managed to pin himself to lead but finished the round in 3rd place and now he is at the second place in overall standings.

Turkish Rally driver Fatih Kara completed the final race after finishing 6th overall on his first ever RX Lites experience. He surely is taking some precious data to his home soil where the next round will be held.
