    So with two events to go the championship is not over. Looks like the maximum score available is 39 points per event with six out of eight events counting.

    Kajto has already done six events so will need to score more than six points on both remaining events to improve his score of 120 points.

    Magalhaes only has five scores so is going to have to count one of his 2 pointers, however his strong early season means he could still be in with a shout if he has a good final two events.

    Lukyanuk has only three scores so all his points will count and he will need a very strong final two events to be in contention.

    Griebel only has four scores so both final events could count for him too but he would need two great results with other guys not scoring well.

    Bouffier and Al-Attiyah have theoretical but almost impossible chances too.

    Way I see it is it should be Kajto's with two reliable runs but Magalhaes could do it if he can make a significant improvement on his last two events or even Lukyanuk if he manages to keep it on the road at the same time as delivering his undoubted speed.

    Yes, pretty much any of the top four could take that title. The dropped score system helps Huttunen although it means he needs to score well on both remaining rounds.

    Particularly interesting as it pretty much means they will be running in an R5 in ERC next year too.

    @FIAERC
    OK, STOP EVERYTHING!
    @ChrisIngramGB is looking for a co-driver for the remaining two rounds of the #FIAERC. You're the one? Get in touch!

    This isnt going to help his chances having to get used to a new co-driver. I wonder what happened with Elliott Edmondson ?

    Delighted that Ross Whittock will join the team as my new co-driver for the ERC U27 title battle... Passion, talent and 'rally pedigree'.

    Wow! That didn't take him long to find a new co-driver, did it?
    Good luck to the new crew!

    I don't know if it is interesting for you, but Lotos have just made a new TV advert. It features Polish national football team and a short shot of Kajto. It is now shown on all the main Polish TVs in prime time:

    It's not like he had long time to look for it, Rally di rome is already next week.

    Interesting.. he may not take the WRC prize drive and instead may accept something else from Eurosport Events (perhaps funding for a full ERC title bid next year?)

    IMO this would be a better prize for career progression and for ERC. Always seemed a bit weird too that JERC U28 winner got a WRC drive and overall ERC winner nothing.
