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
