    Yep, great rally for Rovanpera but each CIR day have a separated classification; he was 3rd in leg1 and he's on his way to 3rd on today's leg. Also nice times from the other teen driving a R5, Bulacia (5th yesterday). Scandola close to get max points for each leg.

    With Rovanpera stationary transfer (gas pressure sensor) and Paolo Andreucci with a ruined wheel that seems to be able to arrive, for the final rankings one has to wait a few more minutes. Certainly, that is, the victory of Umberto Scandola.

    What a coincidence that Rovanperä's trouble put Andreucci up one position

    To eliminate conspiracy theory-Andreucci was last two days just cruising, no need to push for the top result, because he has to think about points which will be taken away from him (he has until today just one retirement), so if he decided just to come to the finish, this gravel event was perfect choice (he is slowly on the loose surface than Scandola & Cempedelli anyway...).
    But, Cempedelli broke the wheel......and Kalle had this electrical issue.
    Until the finish of the championship two rallies are on the program-both tarmac, where Andreucci is in this season in perfect condition (and P208 seems to be on the same level as other R5 cars).

    I just knew this would cause trouble. Italy is the land of a million conspiracy theories after all. He could just as well have taken a time penalty by checking in late at a stop control without forfeiting the entire rally.

    Probably Mr. Holmes isn’t aware overall classification means very little in CIR events, as championship points are given to Leg 1 and Leg 2 independent scratches.

    The team didn’t ordered Rovanpera (P3) to let pass Andreucci (P4) at Leg 1, why would they force him to retire on Leg 2? It doesn’t make much sense. It seems Rovanpera was just (very) unlucky.
