    Also note that Bogie is quickest on the stage and could improve his position if he can keep up that pace. Brynildsen is third fastest demonstrating that he could have been fighting for the lead if he hadn't had a mechanical problem yesterday.

    Looks like something has happened to Osian in SS6. Dropped almost 2mins. Guessing a puncture?

    EDIT: Nope - time corrected. He's taken back more time!

    Time entered on the time card at the stage start was wrong; verified over the radio network.

    Who sets the limits? They are way too low for modern rallycars.

    Good lead for Ahlin with one stage to go.

    We had this discussion last year. The event is running on a UK MSA permit and hence is subject to the MSA regulations. I think the bogey regulation is of no value but it will take time to persuade the MSA to remove it. People in positions of influence are working towards getting it removed.

    Yes particularly as he is playing his joker on this event.

    Handy championship lead for Ahlin now. Intrigued to see what the issues were for Bogie on day one. His pace on day two was next level.

    Let's see whether Cave can pull together more budget/rounds. Hope so. Points buffer means Ahlin doesn't need to push so hard now in theory. Consistency wasn't there last season but this looks like being his year.

    Ahlin always had the pace and would learn a lot from his 2016 season... that's why he was my choice for the Title.

    Burst a brake pipe and only had brakes on three wheels for stages 2 to 4.
