    But I´m not going for watching old slow gentlemen when attending WRC rallies. Not even Rally Sweden. On the other hand true what you say; with money you can buy anything you want. Even a license to drive WRC 17 car.
    Yep that's they way all the "Teams" has wanted it...Think of just shell prep..Early 90s Ford said "100 hours" to prep and acge a Sierra Cosworth 4x4...Now "600 hours"...wonder what the cost difference is???

    It's all about money.

    Nope. That´s what we talked about, yes? No I want action. Not a parade.

    You misspelled his name. The proper spelling is Deivida$ Jociu$.

    I agree. While he is on the road (on national events) he is very spectacular. I would say he is Lukyanuk's style driver with lower skills level than Luky.
    So if he really will drive almost whole season I expect some flashes from him - maybe some decent times in particular stages. As long as he will stay on the road...

    Yes, you are right, I don't expect miracles, but call him gentlemen driver, that's not fair.

    I´m not local, but forecast could give below zero degrees during nights, which is fundamental. Frozen gravel is for sure not good, but will be like a kind of icy conditions. So big need of below zero temperatures coming weeks.

    Snow on top is abonus, but first frozen surfaces.

    Edit: a closer look gives information of plus degrees during days for 10 days ahead, so RS is in danger (my thoughts)
