    Would be cool to see Prokop get a crack in the '17 car I guess. Not sure whether it will happen though.

    I've only been once before, but from my limited experience it's definitely possible to find alternative access routes or move out of the official spectator areas in the vineyard stages - but not possible in the Panzerplatte I don't think, because it is military land (although I'd be interested in hearing otherwise!).

    Moving out of the spectator zones might be difficult on Panzerplatte. My experiences are quite outdated by now. Think the most I've been at the non-official spectating area there was in 2008, when I moved inwards from the stage start.

    Also in 2010 or 2012 went to a non-listed area. Wanted to be near the start but the big paper map started about mid-stage for some reason. The walk to the stage was quite a long one.
    Never stop dreaming because one day it might happen.

I feel this might be an opportunity to get beaten badly by some Skoda drivers and I can't see how he can gain from that? Especially if he gets beaten by Camilli too?

    More than enough possibilities to go to non-official spots at the Panzerplatte. If you look at the stage around the area of Idar-Oberstein on Google Maps you'll find the roads easily.

    If Østberg wants prepare 2018 for real, he needs tarmac competition. Hope he start with the beast.

    Thanks Martijn - had spotted several promising looking access points but with it being military land I expected these would be blocked by locked gates or soldiers. I might make some more explorations!

    Are they blocked or not is down to luck. Last year we had to walk 45 minutes to stages as it was blocked with military people guarding the gate. When we returned in the afternoon, gate was open, no one was there and we drove up all the way to the stage side. We approached from Idar-Oberstein.
