    Exactly.
    Anyway, I don't mind any system that will keep the excitement till the end of the rally.

    It is the next logic step based on the long term plan of Dave Richards---a fucking co-driver----to make the WEC into a "TV spectacle"..
    Now we can discuss this, not saying only one way but judging from the popularity of the threads here, the paint and stickers and logos is very important to many fan-bois--much discussion.....so logically it should be scored..Don't dismiss... Think of the excitement each event, everybody waiting to the moment when TA-DAAAAAHHH! the new livery is reveal and the panel of judges can rate the paint, stickers , promo music and light show, and of course, the back story---all individually scored...Each car could be on camera for 7-9 minutes mini-vignette..

    Then of course style points for driving, that foes without saying..there should be known places where judging takes place...the armys of spectaots could be herded into appropriate pens and provide color background..And I think there should be on each stage "tie-breakers" points where drivers are secretly judged on style but only shown to the Pay-for-view home audience>

    And as stomping around in snow or slipping in wet chest high summer wheat carrying a camera is no fun, and the clear desire of most people is to go with the times, logically it should next go to score SERVICE, the action behind the scenes which is indispensable, and therefore ripe for exploitation. Imagine a row of judges, watching a 9 minute gearbox change --with dramatic sound track piped into the service area----judging style and execution, and poise...(wait? should it be points added, or points subtracted for really GOOD swearing??? I say points added..It has always vastly helped me when working service to calm down by swearing non-stop..) you could have the build up then 9,9, 9,2, 8.0 9.9, 9.9..and they could do that each service!


    The possibilities are endless..Max promo..We're all going to be rich!
