    nice vid and very good statistics!

    lookin at the pics of the stages from the recce and listening to Virves, it will be very very difficult rally and wins the one who drivers very smartly and takes risks in right places.

    take a big risk in the wrong place and you can be out or you will have a puncture or whatever. Wouldnt surprise me if we see quite big gaps on many stages.

    one is for sure! it will be very interesting!

    Yes, I have.
    Can't compare them tho.. Even with all the aero, same lap conditions and stuff, F1 times may differ 0-2s per lap.. whereas in rallying fast and aero demanding stages are won without bumpers and other aero pieces..
    250+km rallies are finished with less than 10 or 5secs.
    Such really small(yet expensive) fin aeros could work only in perfect/,,tunnel'' conditions..
    But engineering to the max!

    I've had a feeling since beginning of this generation that it's like off-road version of DTM.
    Never stop dreaming because one day it might happen.

    The ceremonial start is tomorrow at 18:30, and the start of SS1 is on Friday morning, at 08:39.

    So, I presume they go from the ceremonial start ramp straight back to the service park?
    Drive as if your life depends on it...because it does!

    Your post:
    a) Aero doesn't matter/makes only tiny difference
    b) Rallies are won by tiny differences

    See the issue?
