    Really feel for the local fans who have this one chance to see WRC cars in the flesh, have taken a day off work, gotten up early and trekked into the hills to watch a couple of passes of only 20 cars and are now only going to see half as much because of this farce.

    We can be annoyed about not being able to follow the sport on timing screens and via radio, but those are the guys we should have the most empathy for IMO.

    8 SSS' in a single rally also seems ridiculous.

    this and the fact that organiseres are not able to bring back the cars in time makes N.O.T. ´s statement about 3rd world country a reality...sorry, but this is simply dump..

    In this case, the last 3 stages must be delayed, and it's getting too late. Note, SS6 is "Street Stage" and 7 and 8 are SSS

    This is so stupid... really feel sorry for the guys already in the stages. Brutal.

    As I wrote earlier, according to Bulletin 1, it was forbidden for every of the crews who had extra lights to put them ON on the SECOND PASS of the stage (i.e. SS1y) unless it is later decided otherwise by the CoC.

    I haven't watched the stage so far and I don't know if subsequenlty this rule was cancelled by the CoC, so I don't know who was with lights ON or OFF on SS1y. All I quoted was the rule, and if it was still valid at the start of SS1y, then everyone with lights ON while running it, should be penalised, that's all! I don't care if it was Ogier, Meeke, Latvala, etc.
    Everyone but Ogier used the pods on SS1y as far as i can tell, Ogier turned them on after a while when he couldn't see a jump. WRC TV probably wanted them off but it was too dark.

    fock... i was looking forward to my lunch break to get some wrc action, and now this...
    only topic now is people arguing if Ogier had his lights on or off! Not the most exciting rally so far

    Crazyness...i think their could simply delay the start of stage of 2 hours....there are just 30 cars, and 5 hours between first and second loop of the stage
