    That was a pretty crazy Q1 at Höljes. You'd think they were already at the final !

    Good for Nitiss winning Q2 after getting rolled out of Q1.

    Abbring also looking good again in RX.

    Brilliant win by Seb Eriksson in the Ford Fiesta and Nitiss 3rd. Great advert for the car.

    Great weekend of racing and, once again, some different names on the podium which is exactly what was hoped for this season.

    Can't but help but think OMSE got their timing wrong returning to World RX: they really struggled last year but, despite some issues (and arguably home soil advantage) they were right in the mix in Holjes. Looks like they have reverted back to a conventional layout for the cars (with the cooling in the rear again)? I wonder how different the 2019 cars are to those used last year.

    Without meaning to sound like a social media conspiracy theorist, I did question some of the stewards decisions (or rather lack of decisions) in Sweden. Timmy Hansen clearly pushed to pass in the semi-final, but nothing was said. Yet far lighter contact has been punished elsewhere? I am not keen on the lack of consistency.

    It feels like we'd need to see a rear view of it (I assume you are talking about the move on Abbring in the last corner?). As if he went on the brakes just as he landed, the stewards are often looking at it a bit milder as "he was on the brakes trying to avoid it". The second impact seemed to be around Abbrings door, that is a grey area in the rules, side by side contact is fine, but so are more often than not "in to the side" contact. It was naugthy, and it could've been penalized, I just wish we saw it from the rear as well.

    Big win for Bakkerud in Canada - he now splits the Hansen's and is just 7 pts off the top.

    Great for the Championship. Just a pity Gronholm didnt make the final and close up too.

    Have they stopped blackflagging cars during heats?
    Kevin Hanssen should imo have gotten the black flag (DQ) for the "torpedo" he gave Marklund.

    5 points now: Kevin was disqualified from the final for the move on Marklund.

    Yeah. Gutted for Gronholm. He should be leading the Championship, such a shame he missed those rounds this year. Still not impossible for him to catch up, but he really needed a better result this weekend.

    Bakkerud blew it in the Loheac Final braking too late and running Gronholm wide too. The Hansen's took full advantage and closed up the title race.
