Villagra missed 6 stages on day 1 (stage 3 to 8).
And didn't finish stage 2 for electricals problems.
So, that 7x5 = 35 mn

I agree it is stupid to score points when you raced only 2/3 of the rally.

I get your point df, but the thing is, you can score points by just cruising around as long as you don't bin it or have technical problems. I think getting points should be an achievement.

It is a bit stupid alright, as a pensioner would have been able to score points on that rally.
I think the competitors should not be allowed to score points whilst on Superally. The Superally would then be used for practice only.
Ten years ago, scoring a WRC point was a superb achievement for the Villagra type driver, now it's a given if you finish. wtf

Yeah but if they SupeRally and aren't eligible for points then why would they bother wasting money to fix the car? They'd be better off just packing up and going home. What I think they should do is if a driver SuperRally's and they score points then just halve them. For instance, if Loeb SuperRally's and fights his way to second then he should only get 9 points and not 18.
