    I think they said on the (equivalent of) rally radio that it fell off at the start of the morning session near the beginning of the stage where they're essentially just bouncing over a field between hay bale walls rather than down a proper track. I know it was back on during the mid afternoon service as I took a picture, but when the afternoon session started they mentioned on the radio/tannoy that it had fallen off again in the same place and had been recovered by the marshals.

    EDIT: Just checked my picture, he'd definitely run with it on, as there's a fair amount of chalk dust on it that that stage produces.

    The 208 T16 was often seen testing without the rear bumper but not seen a Fabia have it removed.

    Ingram was out again this morning without it.

    I saw many Fabias testing without the rear bumper. More of Peugeots though, that's true.

    Chris Ingram interviewed states that he is definitely doing the last 3 ERC events.

    He is also confident of doing well in U28 as Barum is a favourite event, and says his main rival Fabian Kreim is not so strong on the gravel events (Poland & Leipaja).

    On best/dropped scores they are currently level with 1 win and 1 2nd place.

    According to http://rajdy.autoklub.pl/news/rzeszo...ed-barum,86915 Italian/Romanian driver Simone Temestini is going to drive the 3 remaining ERC rounds - Barum, Poland and Liepaja.

    But his first rally with a new car will be Rzeszowski Rally in Poland on the coming weekend.

    I must also recommend this, almost raises more intrigue then answers! I hope he writes a book some day, sounds like he and his family have had an interesting ride. Also allows you to appreciate how ill he was. ERC wise, seems like there's some shenanigans going on with the prize drive? Says ideally next year he'd do ERC and WRC2, but is obviously reliant on budget.

    He is a bit like that... he likes to tease and keep people guessing.

    But clearly a lot goes on behind the scenes and we cant have all the info I suppose.

    Good to hear WRC Wales Rally GB confirmed and it sounded like Rally Turkey was happening for him too.
