    Lack of marshals is becoming a real problem. The hillclimb I'm doing on Saturday I'll be marshaling and competing because we won't have enough people otherwise.

    At least they've revised the stupid 1400/historics rule, but I fear it's too late.
    You're so beige, you probably think this signature is about someone else.

    Whilst the focus was on Portugal at the weekend, Rhys Yates had a run out on the Antibes rally and finished a good 7th in the Fabia. Maybe not as many cols in Ypres but good tarmac practice.

    Stages of Antibes and Ypres are in no way comparable. Really not a single thing in common. The asphalt gives a lot of grip in Antibes and no grip in Ypres. Antibes has mountain stages which are slow and have many long medium speed corners. Ypres has got a lot of quick corners with big cuts and big braking zones into tight junctions.
    I don't think you can learn anything in Antibes in preparation for Ypres...

    I know been to both but dont think he's had chance to drive the car on any sort of tar as we are not exactly over run with closed road events in the UK just yet.

    The Manx National was only two weeks ago.

    Have nothing to do with Mr Yates only commenting on a possible reason for entering the rally however in retrospect he is now 6th in the TER and Ypres is the next round so possibly why he chose the south of France over a wet weekend in Douglas.

    Strong entry, hope Neuville's "Red Nose" backed car doesn't make him a bit of a laughing stock like last year! Yates will be fired up after Wervick I guess but think the returning Moffet, even if its a one off prize drive will be the pick of the UK/Irish crews.
