    Breen Q & A:

    https://www.fiaerc.com/erc-qa-craig-breen/

    Rain is forecast for the weekend. How difficult can that make a Tarmac rally ?

    “I haven’t really done so much with the tyre in the wet and that’s something we’ll need to work on. It will be interesting to try the tyre in those conditions and see where we are. It looks like the asphalt is quite grippy so I’m hoping even with the rain it won’t be so bad. But the weather changes so much so let’s wait closer to the event to see what we’re going to do.”

    The starting order will be based on championship positions for leg one. How important will road position be if it rains ?

    “You’ll have some places where you can take some cuts and maybe you can have some pollution on the road running a bit further back. But I don’t think it makes a massive difference unless you have big rain and lots of places where you get mud on the road. I don’t think it should be a huge problem.”

    The main aspect pointed by Castro is Montelongo stages diversity, as they can change from fast to slow, narrow to large or flat to slope in a few kms. I would add they’re a Corsica and Northern Ireland mix, being totally addictive to drive (with SS2 and 12 at the top).

    Btw, weather forecast is giving no or only light rain for both days but storm Alex impact, expected for tonight and tomorrow, could still be felt on Saturday.

    Yes. Solberg was the first to asked if it is posible, and many others follow.

    @AlexeyLukyanuk

    The rally Fafe is new for all fast guys - no one has driven here before. We have only 60 competitive km’s . A bit of a strange novelty from the ERC, a kind of «ground-hog day» with a large number of service breaks and liaisons.There are many short SS that need to be driven 3 times !

    Could the Alpine be a surprize in this rally, can it match the Rally2 cars?

    I'm not sure of the Alpine's performance. But it's unlikely to be a match for the Rally2's here as the forecast is to be partially wet, and with the cuts, quite dirty.
