    Probably built in the olden days when it didn't cost £3million to lay 50 yards of tarmac.

    Why not? It's only 8 km long stage after all. There's likely more overall asphalt distance on some other gravel events than that.

    Why not? Bcs gravelrallies should be on gravel and vice versa. At least not tarmac on the day everything shall be decided.

    And to connect two gravelroads it´s ok to have a few hundred meters of gravel, but this one´s only for PR.
