Sainz continued his "great attack" in the 7th stage winning 46 seconds to Panizzi, who was the previous leader. The 8th stage was much shorter, so time differences are small.

Makinen has retired (?) after crashing with a cow (!!) who wandered to the road. Makinen and Harjanne are ok.

I forgot to mention yesterday that Schwarz had his usual crash. Usually after that he drives carefully to the finish line. BTW, this is probably his last rally with Ford since his sponsors have not yet paid the team any money.

General classification after the 8 first stages.
