    Let's just get rid of these permanent numbers, ok? The single most annoying thing in rallying.

    I guess the idea was that spectators (tv/online especially) would immediatelly know what driver it is.

    Problem is that the numbers are only from side/rear which you often see only in a split second or often not at all on dusty gravel.

    However the teams actually fixed this themselves with putting the flags on the roof wents/different mirrors.

    Rally is not circuit. We don’t need differenciate them like that. Bring back good old big white square numbers.

    I'm surprised Hyundai didn't make him take number 1.

    They've certainly paid for it.....

    Nearly impossible to tell the Toyota's apart sometimes by those tiny stripes on the mirror, i have to skip frames to see what car it is on the video, even missed a really good clip of Tšnak on the Finland video because i thought it was one of the other Toyot's i already had in it
    The numbers help a bit, It's easy to remember Evans being 33, Mikkelsen 89

    In spectator point of view that should be the best thing but I think we will never get them back because sponsors go first as the actual format of numbers uses so many less space for the number.

    Even in local championships here they have changed the rules to have the wrc-style numbers.

    At least we still have them in historic events...

    If WRC changed back to bigger ones, other champs go too.
