    Now we see the true pace of the Toyota's.

    I expect Neuville to gain a bit of a lead now, without the spin he was on the pace of Tanak.

    Would be nice for some relays of moments during the live coverage, but can't complain too much as this is better than nothing!

    I don’t - both TN and Andreas are great when they are unsure of the rally order but both have form for not handling the pressure of fighting for first. Also there can be no team orders with Breen in the mix
    Kris Meeke got fired -PSG so terrified they quit!

    Yes.
    Forgive me if I am not cheering but I am not all that impressed with this whole "unlimited testing" (for Sweden and Finland in case of Toyota). Pretty sure this wasn't what the rulemakers had in mind with that exception. Whole point of limited testing is that you shouldn't win by just outspending others on testing and the exception was that teams can check simple functional things just outside the team base.

    Unsurprisingly (all) teams will use any loophole available. So M-Sport has own gravel and tarmac testtracks, Toyota uses parts of actual stages and I have no doubts Citroen and Hyundais do similar stuff.

    Yes - but also co-drove a lot with Toshi Arai, his father.

    Yes, and before that was co-driver for Arai's father in SWRT.

    Another trivia point, tonight in Australia Glenn's father just received highest honour from the ASN for his services to rallying. Senior forum members might remember him when WRC Australia was in Perth.
