The 2019 World Driving Championship took a break from competition on Thursday (May 30) before the sixth and final leg to determine the overall winner takes place in Gavle on Friday.

The drivers did some touring of the countryside in the Rattvik area, which included a stop at a Dalahast (wooden horse) manufacturer, a trip to Dalarna, Europe’s most spectacular outdoor arena for music, and steamboat ride on Lake Silja aboard the MS Gustaf Wasa, which was built in 1876.

Let’s take a look at Doug McNair & James MacDonald's day in Sweden, complete with some colour (not color, Yannick) commentary from Yannick Gingras and the revelation of a hidden talent from New Zealand's Matthew Williamson.

Ulf Ohlsson (Sweden) leads the 2019 WDC with 166.5 points, followed in second by Doug McNair (Canada) with 164.5 and in third by Mika Forss (Finland) with 154. Norway’s Eirik Höitomt (151) and the United States’ Yannick Gingras (149.5) round out the top five. Here's the leaderboard heading into the sixth and final leg on Friday.

1. Ulf Ohlsson (Sweden) – 166.5
2. Doug McNair (Canada) – 164.5
3. Mika Forss (Finland) – 154
