    The main stream does cut to the rally stage from time to time, but not as often as I would like.

    At least some of them, I remember watching the Spring Rally on Backline Road (Stage 2 this year) as a kid.

    Parts of Stages 3 and 6 have also been used for hillclimbs/sprints in recent years.

    Yip, just a photo I found online but I know the track well. Grew up watching racing there and have driven it myself a few times too.

    They wrote the rules to give diesel an advantage at that time didn't they? Because they wanted to get more diesels in motorsport.

    Kubica was very fast in a WRC car on tarmac too, but not very consistent.

    Quite a difference between WRC and F1 though really - WRC drivers are chasing seconds or tenths of seconds on real roads...

    I like Corsica, its good to have a rally thats a bit different to the others with longer stages etc.

    I know some people think its more exciting to watch 3 short stages than one long one, but if...

    We can be fairly sure that if Neuville wins then Ogier will probably blame his road position anyway. ;)

    I think you're right, Sardegna and Portugal are just too similar in character especially one after the other.

    I remember San Remo being quite spectacular, but would it be too similar to Corsica if...

    Same here, the only time I actually make an effort to go to service parks is to spend a few minutes catching up with friends who are competing.

    Looking through his results most of his WRC tarmac placings are around 5th-6th, so while he hasn't been challenging for wins on tarmac he has been generally finishing rallies and taking consistent...

    He was winning stages and leading the rally at times in Portugal so obviously not lacking pace there.

    He did seem to be taking it gently on the jumps and rougher stuff in Sardegna which may be...

    Good looking entry list for South Canterbury in a couple of weeks, 96 entries including Paddon, Reeves, Quinn and a bunch of the usual suspects. Think I will have to head up with the camera. :)

    Probably right, imagine the uproar if the marshall gave the time card to another competing crew to take to him, who then lost it (or 'lost it' ;) ).

    The fault is still with the driver/codriver who...

    What a drive by Neuville, great to see the rally go right to the wire.

    At least if Ogier does get a penalty for the timecard it won't be the penalty that decides the winner.

    This stage would be far more worthy of powerstage status than the sandpit.
