Rally of Argentina: 3 Fords in Top 6 but Peugeots dominates with another 1-2 finish!

Well, it's turning out to be a domination of HRT proportions. The Rally of Argentina just finished an Peugeot finished with another 1-2 finish (Marcus Gronholm first and Richard Burns second). For the Fords, Carlos Sainz was third overall, Colin McRae fifth and Markko Martin sixth. So I guess it's not all bad news! Tommi Makinnen challenged for the lead but had to retire after flipping his car on one of the last stages! Petter Solberg, driving the other Subaru, finished fourth (only 5 seconds behind Carlos).

Good result for Ford, considering the poor performance on the first day.
