I don't think we can compare Walter Rohrl and Gronholm attempts.

Although it is officialy backed by Ford, the team who developped and set up the Ford Fiesta is a small rallycross team which whose experience can't be compared with Audi's experience back in the days in rally when they modified the Audi S2 for the Pikes Peak Hillclimb. They had a lot of issues during the practices.

And back in the days there was no Nobuhiro's Tajima Suzuki which is a real prototype in comparison to the Ford Fiesta.
