    I think he was sometimes close on tarmac and that would create some pressure, except both would know that they will hold position. Anyway overall he was under control and never a danger to Loeb in the championship.

    The times Sordo was close on tarmac are the ones I wrote, all the other times he was behind Loeb, Sordo was 30+ seconds back pretty soon.
    Another time they were close was Ireland 2007, but then Sordo made a mistake and dropped back. Maybe someone can provide other examples, if they exist.

    Is there a better sound than that of Porsche engined Flat-6 ???

    If your Pistons start flying out the block you'll also only have to buy three instead of four.

    On a more serious note, a reduction in friction for sure and I guess depending on the base engines available by the OEM potentially a more suitable bore/stroke ratio for the restrictor size in Rally2.

    Today Kai Tarkiainen released the itinerary for Secto Rally Finland. "Best ever" route he says. I tend to agree fully. I will let any of you Finnish guys to start Rally Finland thread, but here is (I hope) correct link:
