    Barrable 3rd overnight on the West Cork rally.





    Unfortunately just had a puncture on SS13 so dropped to 5th, not sure if continuing...

    EDIT: 'Cracked brake disc after a puncture on SS13. That's us out, so near to the end of a great @westcorkrally'.

    The Swedish Mitsubishi Mirage R5 is going to compete in Asia-Pacific Rally Championship. It somehow got acceptance by championship officials to battle for overall positions and championship points alongside homologated R5, R4 and NR4 cars in Class AP4. One car will be driven by Finnish ace Jari Ketomaa, the other by British National Cup Champion Robert Blomberg from Sweden.

    Jarek, already for two years it is possible to run nationally or regionally homologated cars in FIA regional championships except European one.

    I think that Maxirally cars are used in CODASUR and Australians used their domestic cars in APRC (at least their local S2000 cars).

    In South America the Maxi Rally cars are allowed, but not so many people used them in the past.
    For this season, the new turbo version should be used and there was some complaints from the Paraguayan drivers with R5 cars saying that the restrictor is too big and the Maxi will be faster.
    There was even some rumours that the Paraguayan's would boycott the championship.
