Round 4 of the WRC starts tomorrow with a Super Special Stage taking place in Lisbon and it looks like it could be a bit of a wet one!

I'll be posting up news and photos as and when I find them but please feel free to do the same. I thought it might be fun to run a bit of a fantasy league too so let's hear who think will finish in the top 5 and I'll dish up some prizes for whoever guesses correctly.

I'm going with

  1. Latvala
  2. Ogier
  3. Neuville
  4. Evans
  5. Ostberg

    Should be a great, drama-filled event as usual :D 

    Top Picks for the event:

    1. Ogier
    2. Latvala (funny how the 2 VWM drivers are first and second...)
    3. Neuville
    4. Ostberg
    5. Prokop (usually very good at being consistent)


    Congrats on the forums, looks fantastic!! 
    I hope to get involved in the DiRT crowd again :)

    Been really enjoying the WRC so far this year; so great to see two British drivers in top seats. Fingers crossed that Meeke can crack the top 6 this weekend!

    I think it will be a strange rally, with lots of water instead of dust!
    ( check the recce photo's)

    But I will guess:


    1 Ogier

    2 Ostberg

    3 Latvala

    4 Neuville

    5 Tänak 


    Hopefully Neuville can make it to the podium!!

    Morning loop has been completed, no one is right so far but there is plenty of time yet! Sounds like Evans and Kubica have both gone off, so that's one of my predictions come in earlier than expected!

    I thought Sordo would do well, but I didn't choose him because the lack of power at Hyundai.... but I guess that was a wrong choice from me :D

    But I am still excited! soo close 9 seconds between number 6 and 1 will be a close epic battle!

    Review after 3 stages! (many crashes after the first 7 stages, Latvala/Evans/Kubica and also Meeke ...)

      " If in doubt, Flat out! "
  • RallyDrivenRallyDriven Member Champion
    Sounds like Meeke had a similar off to Evans. Latvala hasn't done too much damage by the looks of things, no roll cage damage anyway, which hopefully means he will be back tomorrow!

    Fantastic to see Mikko leading a rally again in a Fiesta. I knew he hadn't 'lost it' as that Citroen just doesn't suit a Finnish driving style. Hope his and Tanak's pace can continue, although you can never rule out Ogier.

    A lot of very unlucky incidents, those stages are very unforgiving!

    Kubica is off AGAIN!
