BP Ford Abu Dhabi World Rally Team driver Mikko Hirvonen cruised to victory on the 2010 Serbia Rally, by recording fastest time on all 17 stages.

The Finn was contesting the asphalt surfaced event in a Ford Focus RS WRC as preparation for the upcoming WRC Rally Bulgaria.

Petar Gioszew finished second in a Mitsubishi Lancer Evo IX to claim top Bulgarian championship points, while Italian Marco Tempestini was third behind the wheel of a Peugeot 207 S2000.

Dimitar Iliev had to settle for fourth place after putting his Skoda Fabia S2000 off the road for several minutes on day one of the event.

Meanwhile, Krum Donchev slipped from second to sixth place on the final day when his Peugeot 207 S2000 had a crankshaft sensor problem, while 2009 winner Jasen Popov crashed his Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 9 into retirement.
