    No matter how fast or shitty any stage is, if such accident happens in the second corner of a first stage it's hardly because of that stage even if that stage is completely shitty. It's much more likely because of underestimated effect of cold tyres or overconfidence or overmotivation or whatever else but hardly the stage. Nobody crashes just after the start because of the stage character. Sorry.

    Yeah, I do understand that. The comments were for the stages in general. I do love to race in Marinha Grande, the Mata Real stages are among the best stages I ever done anywhere (they are like Hradek and Liptakov in RBR). However, we have to start thinking when it's to much. Cars are getting faster and faster, we corner faster, brake later. My issue is that we have to start measuring the stages in this fact as well

    The CPR is on the move again, this time on the beautiful gravel stages of Rali Terras d'Aboboreira (used during decades on Rally de Portugal), which will be limited to local spectators due to covid restrictions.

    The title main contenders, Magalhăes (i20) and Araújo (Fabia) have less than a 10 pts split, promising a big fight for each stage win bonus. Besides the top national aces, Formaux is also there for the rally win. SS1 starts at 14.40 gmt.

    Nice fight on Aboboreira; at the end of the first day Fourmaux is leading just 0,3s ahead of Araújo and 1,8s over Teodósio. Magalhăes is P5, 13,9s behind the leader.

    Why has Fourmaux received 2 min of penalties?? He would have eaisly won the event without this penalty...

    A 2m penalty, due to an early entry on a control, took Formaux away from Rali Terras d'Aboboreira lead, allowing Araújo to get the win. Araújo is now leading the series as Magalhăes was only P4 at the event. Teodósio arrived second ahead of the young Correia, that surprisingly was able to get his first CPR podium. Nunes (208 R2) got 2wd win while Lopes (Evo IX) was the best N4. In two weeks, the CPR title will be decided on the last round, Rali Casinos do Algarve.

    Just one question "by the way" regarding Rally Terras D'Aboboreira: there was also one Porsche 911 GT3 (Nb.57), where the hell did the team found gravel suspension and appropriate tyres, rims & small breaks for 911?? And who is this driver?

    That's the Tuthill developed package, isn't it? https://www.tuthillporsche.com/blog/...allejo-racing/ Was supposed to appear at Rally GB in 2014, but the FIA wouldn't homologate their gravel kit: https://www.tuthillporsche.com/blog/...sche-rally-gb/

    Huge shame as it would have been quite a spectacle on the mud! It looked to be quite a handful: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=APqMUS2J-Q4 There also used to be a Chris Harris video on You Tube with external shots, but bizarrely the BBC claimed it when he joined Top Gear... I've always wondered what might have been had the FIA accepted it.
