    Catie Munnings, Tamara Molinaro and a 3rd lady driver in Azores.
    For a driver with such little experience it just seems like a giant waste of money? She could be out rallying every weekend in the UK to improve.

    Agreed!
    It is not higher level events that shape you, it is the raw talent you have and level of professionalism you learn in lower categories that shape you into a world class driver.

    Molinaro I know has done a lot of testing with various machinery but I don't know how many kms of testing.

    She has contacts with various people in the sport including Mouton and her former co-driver (who's also Italian) so she must have picked up something.

    Still, every world class driver today began small, Mouton included, so why they too don't begin at that level is beyind me.

    And if you saw Munnings last year in Ypres, you know she doesn't belong on such level yet. My eyes were hurting when she passed by, never saw such slow action in Belgian Rallying.

    Is Mr Gryazin Snr a rich man?.. this is not a criticsm at all as both Nikolay and Vasily Gryazin have a lot of talent imo, but I noticed Sirmacis car is covered in sponsors and so far he has only confirmed two rounds, and Grayzin's has none and he is doing the full championship.

    Also, how is Vasily doing these days?
