    Meeke would maybe be a good shout for someone...., but I doubt someone like EE would replace his dad? Or if Meeke would be arsed.
    Kris won his first ever Ypres rally, something that very, very rarely happens - after a rally long battle with Loix.

    I wonder how they manage the language issues. Tänak's pace notes are in Estonian, and usually the gravel crew is using a copy of the actual pace notes, and the notes they make are then added to the actual notes. Possibly they would have to translate the pace notes page for page, with every character in the same place so they know where to put the additions in the Estonian notes.

    I remember when Sordo was substituting Thiry as Neuville's gravel crew driver, but Sordo speaks enough French to understand Neuville's pace notes.

    I don't know Tänak's pacenote system, but you have an someone who can translate it to English, and read it to Freddy, and translate the info given by Freddy back to Martin, there's no issue. Normally the main notes aren't really touched (unless there would be some huge mistake), just additional things like cut/don't cut, slippy, mud, etc... Sure it's a "problem" that can easily be overcome, they're professional and experienced enough to work out a clear plan for it.

    If I was a betting man I'd say the season is possibly finished. Feels like the window of opportunity is closing.

    doesn't look promising, as Simmi pointed out...this season is possibly finished, the way I see it, it's all up to Monza...
    If in doubt, flat out!

    Can't say i'm optimistic; figures on the rise in Belgium, and had to run Tour of Flanders without spectators, plus all Cyclocross racing running without spectators as well. It will need something miraculous for Ypres to run.

    Is there a better sound than that of Porsche engined Flat-6 ???

    It's not a rumor if you made it up yourself.
