    I can't understand why the Rally 2 cars only have a 10bhp increase.

    You are right, I forgot they want to make it separate brand, but you get the idea.

    Because they obviously try to make the cost and complexity increase minimal possible and in the same time feed the political need to go hybrid.

    This kind of hybrid is becoming standard on just about all cars and sometimes it's basically necessary for the car to work (ex. in latest Ford 1L with big turbos). Should be easy and cheap to use it.

    More reliable with a mild hybrid system for them.
    So many problems on some of the road cars these days so hopefully the WRC system will be reliable, seems like they have more than enough keeping alternators running. Will be fun when the road cars have had a few winters running in salt...

    No running order change says Matton...

    Dirtfish:
    Talking to the teams and drivers there seems to be a common interest in a return to a qualifying stage and the potential for reversing the order at lunchtime on day one on all rallies.

    Anyone who can properly translate the main things in this article for Rally Sweden? I think they talk about having spectators on a few public areas only?

    That's pretty much it - several spectator areas holding up to the allowed limit of 300 fans, these spaced several kilometre's apart and with the rally itself covering a huge area.

    300 seated spectators, so i guess you will get a ticket for each seat like in a stadium...
    Also very dependant on open borders to Norway since we are 25% of the spectators and a big part of the 15 mill SEK income.

    Each stage normally only has maybe 5/6 viewing points so are we realisticly saying only 1500/1800 spectators at any one stage? At that rate tickets will be like gold dust.
