    Do all 5 rallies count, or can they strike off the worst result for one rally?

    Double points. Why? If it's double the distance, then fine otherwise it's not. And I wish they wouldn't do this. It's skewing a series in favour of a final round showdown, like a Game 7 in US sports.

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

    I assume they do it to make it harder for anyone to secure the title before greece.

    Two reasons that I can see.

    First, every year, the last round of JWRC / DDFT / WRC Academy / whatever it's called has less participants in the last round than the first. In some cases, dramatically so - it's been half, or even less in the days of Citroen DS3 R3s. Giving an incentive to keep going should hopefully mean more than four or five cars contesting the last round. You're more likely to spend the money to go to Greece if there's a chance of achieving something.

    Second, for me, it's a fairer way of compensating for a bad round. I'm not a huge fan of dropped scores - too often it can reward mediocrity, with faster but less experienced or consistent drivers losing out. You can make the argument 'rallying isn't just about being fast' (and it's one I do subscribe to) but at this level, it's surely just about proving your pace, before learning the rest of the craft. So, by giving a fast driver the chance to make up for a bad score, by going like hell and winning the last round for double points, I think it makes more sense.

    Greece is maybe a bad rally to give double points if it's puncture lottery.

    So by this time next year we'll be celebrating two Junior Champions. One who is Junior World Rally Champion, the other WRC2 Junior Champion (who has been driving a faster car and done more rounds facing more competition).

    And there are also points for every stage win.
