Except for Elfyn, the rollercoaster continues. Latvala gets a big puncture on SS8 and drops 30 seconds. Tänak also stricken with a smaller puncture, and goes down to 5th. Still just 40 seconds between 2nd and 6th, so anything can happen. Wonder how Elfyn and his DMacks will hold up to road sweeping tomorrow.





They won't have to. Cars start in reverse order of their positions. So he's going to have about the same road position as today.

I have to say, when the hype train for the 2017 cars was rolling, I was skeptical that the season would be any more exciting than usual. I'm very happy to be proven wrong! It's so great to see serious competition in this sport again, between factory teams and smaller teams as well.

I'd be especially happy to see a different driver winning every event this season, that'd be pretty crazy.  ;)

Gutted he couldn't get it to the end of the day :( 
At least it looks like they'll be back out today

edit: seen both paddon's and meekes rolls, both incredibly unlucky.

Poor Chris, such unlucky bump. Bastard bump.

The day has started, drivers are saying that today's more car friendly, big push from everybody? Evans just has to keep calm head, but my biggest question is how good will be Mads when fast guys starts to pressure?

Mads kept pace on the first stage, but got the infamous hydraulics problem of the Fiestas.

Meeke takes after his mentor Colin Mcrae, doesn't he? It's uncanny!







My thought exactly! That and he's emulating Solberg's season from hell...


FIA: illegal aero :smiley:

If Neuville stays focused and keeps it together, I say he'll take the win.
And if Tanak keeps the pressure on too, he might even take 2nd  place of Evans.

Damn it, Michelin. That puncture cost Latvala his rally. Still, if Ogier's car suffers hydraulic issues tomorrow and/or if the Jaris combo is really damn quick tomorrow I'd say Ogier's championship lead might dwindle.

Anyways, woooooah there Elfyn. That was quite the lead to lose. I'd go with him taking the win tomorrow, followed by Neuville. Really though, I'd like whoever wins at this point to a) not be Ogier and b) score a maiden victory. On that note, I find it really incredible that Elfyn might score his first win earlier than Ott. Ha, Malcom!

Just waved at Latvala and he waved back at the service park. I almost peed with excitement :smiley:








Photo? :>



Meeke again out rolled :(

Man learnt from the master, drives like the master. 



BTW. Ogier:

Don't have a picture wiiith him per se (I'm in the same frame as him) but I do have pictures of him, Tommi, Jarmo Lethinen and Kaj Lindstrom. I even have a video of angry Tommi pointing a finger at an engineer, and a few pictures of Latvala and Makinen mid pep talk (I guess). Tell me what to share and I'll deliver ;)

Edit: sorry if I seem overly excited but as a first rally this is too much! It's everything I'd imagined it to be and more.

@FloatingGrass   This just makes DiRT Rally and DiRT4 all the more special for you now.  Welcome to the club.  

I am jealous that THIS is your first rally.

It's fun getting close to the drivers! I've got quite a few autographs from the last couple of rally gb's, and my sister got selfies with Mikkelsen and Paddon! Enjoy your last day there!

Latvala's puncture was his own fault, to wide and hit the edge of the stage quite hard.


edit: I've not seen anything of kris' second crash, which normally means it was pretty serious. The car is a complete state, but maybe they were close to spectators? Could just be that the cameras came loose in the accident and the footage is t worth showing. Anyway, they're all ok, so that's alright

3 stages to complete today.
I suppose Neuville will attack for the 1st place.

Ogier's fight for podium is finished unless Malcolm orders Tanak to give up a place for him (it would be wise considering championship standings).

So fantastic season so far, great fights.

Feeling bad for Mads, I was hoping for him to finish on the podium so we'd see even more new drivers up top :)

Standings for today:

POS DRIVER DIFF 1ST
1. GBRE. EVANS
2. BELT. NEUVILLE +11.5
3. ESTO. TANAK +26.8
4. FRAS. OGIER +49.9
5. FINJ. LATVALA +1:24.6
6. NZLH. PADDON +4:26.7
7. FINJ. HANNINEN +9:34.3
8. ITAL. BERTELLI +12:10.0
9. ESPD. SORDO +13:26.8
10. SWEP. TIDEMAND +13:57.5
11. NORM. OSTBERG +14:27.7
12. ARGJ. ALONSO +23:39.1
13. CHLP. HELLER +34:21.2
14. MEXB. GUERRA +56:34.1
15. PRYG. SABA RODRIGUEZ +1:04:14.8
16. POLH. PTASZEK +1:06:13.3
17. IRLC. BREEN +1:21:43.3
18. ITAF. FRISIERO +1:32:40.3

It looks like that picture was taken from a video, so I guess someone will post it soon.

The damage in the bottom right picture is pretty substantial

On the first stage everybody will push and see what happens, if the gap is too big to catch up, they'll keep tires for PS. But I got this feeling that some one from top3 will crash out today... :/
