    Don't forget John Kennard, he was 58 last year, when he still competed with Paddon.

    Stuart Loudon was the man that codrived Evans on TdC tests. Why not him?

    Mills has been in Evans's gravel crew team for a long while, and also has experience from the rally itself.

    Not for the sportsmen. Even being a co-driver is physically demanding especially in hot weather. There is a reason why the profi crews do a lot of gymnastics and stuff to keep themselves in the best shape. Not saying he can't do that but for sure not that good like years a go.

    Mirek, armchair general this is not opinion...Physical training is good for BRAIN function and to reduce the perception of stress..
    CARs are not physically demanding compared to some REAL manly sports.

    But STRESS---specially the individual's subjective perception of stress IS a real thing..
    If as has been the trend for a lobf time now, they recruit young boys who are from privileged background to " bring up" in the sport...I mean just look at them when tmany begin the sport..They're soft children....
    They NEED something physically hard to do so in the mind they have something to compare the NORMAL pressure and stress of rally to something.
    Doing all that gym and running in their mind "was hard" so "mere stress" seems less hard...

    You can be armchair general, and an engineer....I did harder sport...then did rally..Rally was nothing hard..Good laugh..
    (everything is relative..when I retired and come back to Amerika I get to do my real love---on motorcycles --before I do rally. Fun was defined as 300km in the mountains on narrow skinny little trails banging over 10000 rocks and bouncing off of 100 trees in one day..Then 16km --5 laps---around extra long mx track..
    That was fun!... One day.. WRC guys sit in nice car and do 300km SS over 3 days..a slight relative difference...
    it is STRESS the physical training is for.
