Two legs of the 2019 World Driving Championship are now in the books and the drivers will take a break on Sunday before resuming competition on Monday. Canada's James MacDonald is joined by a special guest in the second WDC Report.

Sweden's Ulf Ohlsson slips to second and Canada's James MacDonald maintains third place after guiding second-tier starter Quite Special to a fourth-place finish, narrowly beaten for third.
