If this could affect a WDC the running order comment is valid.

To lose a WDC because your scrubbing the surface seems harsh, end up been even more tactical with people dropping back before the live TV stage.

Seems a bit mickey mouse from a purists point of view but then Dave Richards / TV promoters and the FIA ruined rallying in the 90s onwards by pandering too much to TV.

This concept wouldn't have made this years Dave coverage any better anyway.

More exciting cars that went sideways instead of been glued to the road with electronic diffs and down force would improve the spectacle. Not getting misty eyed but watch footage on youtube of an S1 Quattro in Finland and then a C4 and see which entertains you more. Why not make the regs state 80% of the power goes to the rear wheels or something.

What a sh1te idea !

The sport needs to get it's house in order first, and get back to basics before it starts considering these mickey mouse ideas.

We are still suffering with the 3 day clover leaf format brought in during the late 90's to pander to the WRC's TV aspirations.

Get back to basics, return to the endurance element of rallying, and the TV will take care of itself.

Personally, I think BBC2's Rally Reports of the 80's and early 90's were way superior to the crap coverage we get now from Motors TV and Dave.

William Woollard beats Neil Cole hands down any day of the week !

Still, the points on offer for the TV stage on the last day could give our great British hope the chance of stealing some glory !

Not needed, not asked for.
FIA is adopting the same idea as football, rugby etc. - unfortunately - where you win, then have to win again in a play-off/run-off!
Absolute crap.

it could be a good idea if the datges are of a decent size, like finland that would be sutiable but if it was like the algarve stadium or something it would be a joke. but 1-2-3 points is comparitively a small number of points compared to what you get for winning the whole rally.
