    Can’t imagine the damage would be terminal unless he had an accident?

    Re: punctures, are tyres R5 boys use less puncture resistant? Or are problems occurring for them because roads are more churned up further down the order?

    That was because they had overheating issues on the slow stages of Sunday in Argentina

    No need to be so harsh, Ingram has good reasons for the steady driving plan.

    Its only his second gravel rally in an R5; plus it's his big chance and he has low funding so has to protect the car and make a good finish position and hope to please his sponsors.

    45 years old an first tim in WRC 2 and now 10 total in Turkey and leading WRC 2 clases with more an 3 minuts. Never seen Henning in Skoda before, but he has so far driven from all WRC 2 drivers. Then we can not say that WRC 2 riders are ready to run WRC top class. It was his second-hand Ilka Minor who has arranged the drive and possibly a car. It was not from Skoda Motorsport factory, I think. And her is his stage results:
    9 on 1 stage
    1 on 2 stage
    4 on 3 stage
    2 on 4 stage
    1 on 5 stage
    1 on 6 stage
    1 on 7 stage

    Henning did Finland 2016 in a Fiesta and Sweden 2017 in a Fabia, when they had to take the windshield from Lukyanuk's rental car i think it was after a roll on Knon.

    I've missed it. Then there is the second race with an unknown car in this group against the best in WRC 2.

    Sadly there is no real race. The thing is that usually nobody from WRC2 cares about non-registred drivers and nobody can blame them for that. There is simply no reason to risk anything in a virtual fight with someone who doesn't take points. Henning is not the first one to be ahead of them and not the first one who will be simply ignored.

    Tyre used by R5 is at least 1kg lighter then those Wrc tyres - difference is in steel wires quantity inside, so there is strenght difference
