    Oh yes it does!

    They didn't just turn up in NI out of the goodness of their heart!

    There was indeed a large payment made: https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-northern-ireland-49117736

    All major events need taxpayer support. Otherwise they just go elsewhere...

    Really good selection of photos, Simmi - the exposure and lighting is very impressive. Our paths seem to have crossed in shakedown and Hafren too. Unfortunately my camera was playing up more and more as the event went on, so my photos are a mixed bunch. I'll post some next week, once I'm back from Mull.

And even with the other drivers/cars combinations those have been also relatively competitive amongst themselves, sometimes even challenging/beating the top three.
    Come on, the C3 has had big issues since day one. If Ogier was still in an M-Sport Ford would Tanak be running away with the title to the same extent ?
    Rally fans please help ! Chris Ingram leads the ERC but still requires funding for the final round. Donate and you can win the chance of a prize ride !

    Was your question your opinion? We don't know the answer, and we never will. In big picture I agree with gorganl2000.

    I do think that Tšnak is better in setting up car than Ogier. Tšnak learned a lot from Ogier in M-Sport, but I also think, that Ogier benefited a lot because Tšnak developed/provided good setup for that car. This is again - just an opinion, not the clear and only truth.

    well theres some truth in it, anyone who has watched the Tšnak Movie, has seen that there is a clip where Wilson says when Ogier arrived at the team, he demanded that he is the first one on tests to test the car, but later on when he found out that Ott is very good at testing and setting up the car, Ogier changed his opinion and started testing after Tšnak.
