    What else do you expect from organiser? For sure it is really bad thing that it happened. But it happened and you cannot take it back. It is up to organiser to investigate how and why this happened and make things not to repeat same mistake in the future. For this things, you dont need to solve it through media...

    It has happend before and it will happen again (and it actually happen quite often but in most cases there is no accident). The problem is that if there is someone stupid enough and really willing to go in the stage he can do that. It's often impossible to stop him. It can be a true mistake of the organization like if they forget to tape some small access road but usually someone simply forces his way into the stage and in such case the marshal simply can't stop a car by his body (or it can be somewhere without marshals).

    I dont know this exact place, but I remember stages in Cyprus from previous years. There are some access roads, but plenty of open area, where cars are normally go on the field, out of the road. So they can enter the stage from anywhere...

    I always had that question why to put such stages in a rally when there are proper roads. In safety terms is suicide...

    Ok, I can understand in Middle East, but Cyprus has enough proper SS.

    Sometimes you cannot win stupidity. In Acropolis, there were people standing just half a metre away from the point cars were landing after a big jump just to take a selfie... People shout at them but they will do their thing.

    Another one from Herczig:

    Itís an interesting rally, very mixed with some super fast sections (rare to see a Fabia topping out) combined with some very rough sections.

    Herczig had done a good job on these two rough gravel rallies.
