How is giving people a random position fair? That just makes it a lottery.

At least with a qualifying run, it is based on skill, performance etc. Nothing 'mickey mouse' about that to me.

In my opinion you shouldn't be allowed score points after retiring. They shouldn't get rid of superally altogether, because if lower priority drivers have to retire it is a complete waste of money on that weekend (if eg a fault appears in the car early on).

To save the leaders from cleaning the road for the others during the stages, you have them...
clean the road for the others in qualifying
- thus letting them chose their starting position after the others
- therefore, cleaning the road for the others during the stages!

Case made! :rolleyes:

I think that in the interest of the spectators Super Rally should continue, but those using Super Rally should sweep the road on the remining days of the Rally as penalty for retiring

Also they should be allowed to re join at the earliest opportunity only taking a time 5 minutes slower than the fastest time for every stage not completed

This will add value for spectators who can only get to see one day of a particular event and for example may other wise miss the driver who has retired from that morning

The Sport needs more cars on the stages, this is also in the Sponsors interest, if a driver retires on the 1st stage a sponsor will be very Unhappy, but if he re joins at least that sponsor is getting coverage
