Good and about time. Penalising people for success is illogical anyway and I can't understand how they failed to foresee the tactics which would be employed.

So its back to Loeb dominating and having the rally all cleaned up by the end of Saturday ?
The current rules arent great but at least theyve been producing the closest finishes in WRC history.

they shouldnt have changed it to how it is now, I cant help but feel like they're cheating by backing off, having the fastest cars sweeping the road though should continue though because the time they lose by being first on the road brings the slower drivers into contention at least on day one, they get a good bit of PR and some money from sponsers meaning they could make a stab at it in better machinery.

now all they need to do is put the wrc on a free to air channel rather than the farce that we have at the moment where you have to pay sky then Espn to be able to watch it, thank the lord I dont believe in for youtube
