    If you need to create jumps to make your stages interesting for spectators, you're doing it wrong. I like rally with proper stages, without artificial things like chicanes, anti-cutting stuff, roundabouts or fake jumps. Those artificial things have never done anything good to the sport (Bertelli-Finland-Kakaristo, Mikkelsen-tractor-Australia, countless chicane issues, etc.). Simply ban those things, if organizers can't find anything suitable without modifying the surroundings, move on to the next, there are enough candidates for organizing WRC events.

    She is a complete, arrogant disgrace. I'm fucking furious reading her comments.

    Dimviii, I'm not so sure they are in the same boat, as Matton says the jumps need too change, but Mouton is saying the drivers need to manage their speed and that the jump "is not ridiculous"... to me, they are saying slightly different things.

    It always amazes me what key figures in this sport are so fondly attached to, what they'll go out of their way to defend, usually things that are detrimental to the integrity the sport... If only they cared as much for the legacy of this sport as they do their pathetic gimmicks.

    The WRC gravy train would be far more lucrative for these figures if the sport was closer to what it was in the past, ironically, 'in their day', rather than the circus they're complicit in turning it into.

    work of Matton Mouton is to secure these super stages which are full of spectators.
    So they have to be 101% sure that a jump(or whatever) at these stages is safe.Same way as they check,and some times cancel proper stages due to safety reasons
    At this rally we just learned that the ramp was wrong because of thinner metal sheet.
    Could the drivers had known something like that before they jumped?
    definetely NOT.
    except from wrc drivers(who love flat out, and dont lift.....),at this jump passed and wrc2 drivers,or national drivers
    if the thinner metal sheet had collapsed when a national driver passed,and the car with some 100km/h rolled over the croud?
    So the''drivers have to lift'' is pure stupidity.
    it was a wrong from organisers,and fia didnt checked it.

    They canceled a stage in MC because the crowd is in dangerous place, but now on this stupid jump near the crowd on even more stupid super special it's the drivers have to be careful.

    Seriously? WTF? Helllooooooo......

    Not my kind of show, but you’re totally right about this stuff being useful to attract younger publics. Btw, besides events previews and reports, apparently Chen is also making WRC vlogs. Well done Red Bull!
