    The point is that Griebel was on home soil. Last year Jakeš was able to fight with Sordo on Barum and I'm pretty sure he would be minutes slower in Catalunya.

    Come on PLuto, you can do beter than that.
    I know, I meant it mainly as a joke. But this doesnt mean that top crews in WRC2 are constant, mostly are on top drivers which are not doing whole championship, but only very selected number of races...

    Because they cannot, rules allow only 7 races. But there is plenty of drivers who do only 1-3 races...

    Gryazin:
    As you remember, we were forced to miss the Rally Turkey. However, we use this time as efficiently as possible: in early September, we are finally testing the brand new Skoda Fabia R5 Evo, and in the mid-September me and Yaroslav will go to Slovenia...

    In WRC2Pro you can drive as many rallies as you wish and the eight best count. Rovanperä has now driven eight rallies but is entered for Turkey. Not sure how much he can drive in the rest of the season, since he's going to army in October. However, a result in Turkey would drop off the retirement in Corsica, letting him gain full points. After that he can only better up his third and second places.

    Østberg has done six rallies and is not entered to Turkey. Assuming he does not go to Australia, his maximum possible score is 160. Thus Kalle would need to just finish Turkey, even in recce speed, in order to get 15 points from a third place.

    Greensmith is at five rallies and will make it to six in Turkey. If he wins Turkey, he's exactly level with Østberg and in the same situation. Perhaps he's looking forward to do Wales in the WRC car?

    Anyway, this joke of a series seems pretty settled by now.

    OC Veiby was testing in Wales with Printsport (team from Finland) Polo R5.
    He has been using lately Kristoffersson´s (KMS) Polo R5
    KMS has 2 or 3 Polo R5 and Printsport has 3.
    If Veiby will start Wales with Printport we could see:
    -Emil Lindholm also with Printsport
    -Johan Kristoffersson and Petter Solberg with KMS since Oliver is using Solberg family Polo.

    Wales could really be Fabia vs Fiesta vs Polo battle !

    Kajto with Fabia in Turkey. Presumably because of expected better reliability in this rough event.

    Yes, that's how he explained his choice in the press release (sorry, in Polish only):
    http://kajto.pl/aktualnosci/kajetan-...a-rajd-turcji/

    The choice is not coincidental. This car is well tested and more reliable.

    But he is back in Polo in Wales Rally GB

    The entry list for WRC2 in Wales is quite interesting. For the first time we have 3 Solbergs in one rally

    Entry list:

    Maybe date to Cyprus Rwlly being so close there are no Polo available? As Taxis and Herczig are using them in Cyprus...

    Bad start of Rally Turkey for Kalle Rovanpera. Puncture and rolling on SS2, then double puncture and accident on SS3.

    "We changed one puncture at the front - I have no idea where I got it. I slowed down the pace because we had no spare tyres, but there was a big rock that we hit. I think it is over for us today because we don't have any spare tyres left."
