    To me it looks like he was suddenly trying to avoid the tyres on the pavement.

    Can confirm this. Wasnt any in the recce or in the roadbook. Dunno was that the reason though. The "lake" was in the recce allready.

    Don't know exact rules of nationals too, but Solberg looked better than most of U27. Fast and spectacular, lines bit interesting and different than others, but it comes with experience. Huttunen fast and smooth. Sesks - bit crazy, Mareš - smooth, need more aggression on gravel roads, maybe need pace notes correction for those fast roads, overall - better than expected; Zawada on 1st stage bit cautious, on 4th spectacular and quite fast. Ingram - not fastest, not most spectacular, but good driving. Nice driving from Swedish boys - T.Kristensson 4th in R2 class, and A.Westlund good times in national field, while according ewrc-results.com it is his 2nd rally ever, 1st was week ago in rallysprint Saldus.

    Dont compare national field with ERC. They have different conditions, different rules for fuel, different rules for tyres, different types of tyres etc. Any comparison is nonsense...

    That is nonsense. That puddle was there for whole week. I was there by foot on Thursday and it was almost same like today. And I have seen that there should be a problem as everyone would like to cut through this pavement. I wanted to discuss it with organiser, but after all problems on recce and with shortening of stages I forgot...

    I am not able to upload picture with the place of crash from recce and race - to see the difference. And my battery is out soon. Please, look to this link, you should find the picture there - https://forum.autosport.cz/viewtopic...p=87190#p87189
