30-year-old Italian racer Andrea Crunola paired with navigator Marco Bergonzi sensationally won the Monza Rally Show 2019, ahead of all three Hyundai factory racers Dani Sordo, Craig Brin and Andreas Mikkelsen.

In the absence of the champion of the last four years, Valentino Rossi Cruniola won five out of eight SUs in his Volkswagen Polo GTI R5 and did not lose leadership during all three days of the competition, ahead of Dani Sordo who took second place by 11.5 seconds. The top three winners were locked by another local racer Andrea Nuchit in a private Hyundai, and he would be the second if not for a five-second penalty on SU6.

Only fifth and sixth completed the race Brin and Mikkelsen. Hyundai riders could only console themselves with a complete victory in a separate Masters Show competition, which was held in the format of the Champions Race. Here, in the final, Dani Sordo defeated Thierry Neuville, who did not participate in the main rally program, and Mikkelsen and Brin shared the third place.
