    Might be of interest to some of you (or not!) but, in anticipation of this weekend, I put together a season preview:

    http://fueltopia.co.uk/world-rallycr...-2020-preview/

    That covers every major story I have seen in the last few months, so hopefully I have covered everything.

    The Projekt-E cars were nowhere near the ICE cars time in qualifying and looked a real handful - heavy and hard to moderate the instant power & torque with the electric motors.

    Oh and they sound shit too.

    eCars have 100hp more than WRX/ERX cars but over 3s slower /lap
    a lot to develop
    Traction control seems to be biggest problem (after the noise )

    The E-Rx looked too stiff to get enough traction, but still early days yet.

    Yeah, fully agree. The cars looked a real handful in the wet, but the times appeared to come down on Sunday and the drivers looked like they were wrestling with the cars less. Shame that they couldn't get a couple more electric cars for the inaugural round, as I think a full grid would have made it more watchable. Going to be interesting to see how the Projekt E cars develop over the season (and how quickly they can close the gap to the traditional Supercars).

    I wasn't able to watch the qualifiers during the day, but caught up on all the broadcasts in the evenings. Good to see all the classes getting such comprehensive coverage.

    I was gutted for Bryntesson yesterday as I think he is real a European title contender this year. The level at the top of the Euros looks very high, Evjen and the Dubourgs all recorded some blinding times. I wonder if Eriksson will be back for another round (or two)?

    Absolutely astonishing drive from Johan. I'd like to think his performance this weekend might silence those who still claim his success in '17/'18 was largely thanks to the car. I hope Ekstrom manages to rearrange his plans (and find the budget!) for a full season campaign, as it would be superb to see those two fight it out this year. Glad to see Bakkerud find more speed yesterday, but what a miserable weekend for Liam. Just a brief flash of pace yesterday then the car crapped itself. Disappointing weekend for Gronholm, I really hoped to see him and Johan fighting up front, but Niclas seemed to spend most of yesterday looking at the back of a Seat.

    The racing was as exciting and controvertial as ever, but unless Ekstrom can continue that man JK looks in a class of his own.

    BTW how the hell did they pick Natalie Barratt for the Projekt-E car ?
