    Anyway the one who wants to fight for the title has to be competitive everywhere. Only six rounds remain and Lukyanuk already scored two victories.
    It is something like PR stuff. With so much experience you cannot really say that you are going there to gain experience and get back to racing rhythm. He did better than I expected and I think that he will be more competitive in Acropolis and Cyprus.

So this should bring problems as drivers needs to use different pop-offs now.
    Brilliant idea, cancelling the homologation of the strongest one when this is a notorious problem of R5 cars.

    Who is responsible for this?

    The tv programme itself could sometimes be better but ERCís YouTube output is top notch - quite fast to get stuff online, plenty of footage and even some full stage coverage of some drivers.

    Onboard Magalhaes SS6. A question to br21... should it be possible to hear the pop-off opening in the onboard?

    br21 will have for sure more knowledge about the r5 pop off,but what i have understand is that the problem with them is that they fail to keep the given maximum turbo pressure constantly(2,5 bar)
    When they fail to keep the pressure, you loose power.If the pop off valve cant reach the given target,but manage to hold some 2,3 bar,you are not going to listen something from any onboard or inside the car.
    it sounds really strange to me to have these problems after so many years.
    Btw at video near the end we saw Magalhaes reached 188km/h.

    If you compare to Gryazin’s onboard then Magalhaes’ acceleration up the hill at the beginning is comparable.

    No, you can't hear anything from onboard. You can notice from worse acceleration sometimes, but also not easy from video as instead of 1,5b boost you have some 1,15; so not that huge, huge difference to clearly see from video (especially as you have other factors, like uphill road, etc).
    Recent newest 008 spec pop-off is not worse than 007 (which homologation was cancelled as it gave some opportunity to cheat). Main problem with them is that they are supposed to open close to their upper homologation limit (which is 1,65), but sometimes they loose performance and open at 1,3 for example... It sometimes happens also during gear change as if wastegate is reacting too slow then you have overboost for split second. Or during ALS when "spikes" from it make it open. Some drivers have tendency to drive less "pop-off friendly" (shifting early, etc). Sometimes it's just poor quality of them, sometimes added to heat (ambient and intake air), vibration and other crazy factors. Nowdays most R5 car manufacturers have quite good strategies to avoid pop-off opening situations plus strategies to close it when problem occurs. But it's not always 100% succesful. Normally when you have pop-off which opens few times during the loop you for sure change it to new one, usually it helps, at least for some time. As each pop-off valve has it's "life cycle" - after some number of openings combined with "working hours" it loosing performance.

    For the R5 drivers, and their sponsors doing ERC must be a much better deal. WRC2 is totally neglected for airtime.
    The manufacturers will see and pick up the best talents also from ERC!
