    Hope Habaj can get his car fixed and still drive the rally.

    Great QS time by Ingram.

    Think there are a lot of rally fans with the same opinions as Vic however its a view not shared by a lot outside the sport in this country, sadly reflected in Chris's problems finding backing. Would make it a great underdog story if he wins and although I'm a Brit would say that of a driver from any nationality.

    In this type of weather, with the given type of stages, starting from first position is a huge advantage. Quite strange choice from Ingram imo.

    He prefers to see Lukyanuk's lines and maybe the roads will actually be a little cleaner with a fast car sweeping some of the leaves and surface muck.

    Plus he does not have to beat Lukyanuk.

    Eddie, I can't imagine any wet asphalt rally where not starting first is an advantage. The simple fact is that even one car can throw a looot of mud on the road if the driver wants to do so and I am sure Luky knows that and will take the advantage of making the life of his opponents harder.

    Ingram has his reasons, but of course Mirek knows better as always...
