    Of course if it it´s standing still on a place with lots of space around.
    However on fast roads/stages no circles around that monster.

    Talsi and Kurzeme were Kalle’s first ever 4WD gravel rallies. And on an S2000, not R5, although it shouldn’t make a difference

    S2000 are much slower than R5 on Latvian or Estonian roads because they spend plenty of time in RPM limiter.

    I meant comparing either to WRC/custom cars is wrong.

    I don't think so. Modern R5 cars are already faster than many older WRC cars. This is always tricky and never possible to say with certainty how much a car plays a role. Safe to say is only that the guys were with different cars and it's not fully comparable therefore.

    Good. Would have been ridicolous if not.

    As we already know Timo Jouhki confirmed that Kalle has 2+1 year contract with the SKODA. So at least 2019 in WRC2 and if he is able to drive works World Rally Car in 2020, he is free to go. But maybe then it could be SKODA WRC

    This and next year is all about to get more experience from the different WRC events. Jouhki said also that he is sure that Kalle would be ready already now to drive the top 6 behind the wheel of the World Rally Car. Source: yle.fi

    Bits that Julian Porter said during Portugal SS1:

    - Skoda is now attending manu meetings in WRC
    - Østberg to do Germany in C3 R5, two other drivers in talks for the 3rd car (Loeb + someone else)
