    It's common pratice here in Portugal with the R5 cars. When things don't go as plan, normally it's the pop-off valve. You never notice in the movies you see, but they we're there!!!

    He hopes to give the russians competition, and fight for podiums is what he said.
    But this being his first asphalttally since 2013, and working with a new team of engineers he did not reach that goal this time. He made a bad tyrechoice on friday, and just tried to get the trust in the tyres on saturday. Team did some set up changes on sunday, that he liked, but then the top drivers also just tried to protect their position.

    At least I will give him a gravel rally to see if he is on podium level. But the two russians are quick, so he will have to fight hard!

    Start with old WRC was an option. If you dont want to use it, you can take money for your ERC campaign.

    He really didnt expected he will win this rally. He was not driving on tarmac for more that two years and didnt do any rally since last year Wales Rally GB. And especially so abrasive and special tarmac in Canarias. So he did quite well rally there.

    Maybe you dont know, but since 1.4.2018 was cancelled homologation of pop-off valve from company Oral with number 007, which was used by most of the teams (it looks like that this pop-off valve was quite stronger than others). So this should bring problems as drivers needs to use different pop-offs now.

    Really nice event we had in Gran Canaria, great to see the R2 battle (Gago, Seks, Llarena, Wagner, Solans), for me the bigest surprise is Seks in her first asphalt event but also Solans jr. who was the fastest R2 all the event.

    Nice performance also of Pellier with the 208 T16, never imagined he could make a scratch. Congrats to Alexey, he seems to be the master of the Islas Canarias, three victories now and looks he could match the record of five consecutive wins of Carlos Sainz in the 80s

    Grzegorz showed also last year that roads on Canarias suits him very well. So his great performance is no surprise.

    The next JERC U28 round isn’t until July so hopefully he will be fully fit by then.
    I hope he will be fit earlier...

    How come he didn't know that when he claimed to go for the title?

    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.

    Watching the highlights I have to say Eurosport still do the best job of rally coverage. Great editing and mixture of heli, stage-side & onboards giving a real feeling of speed and comparison between driving styles.
