I wasn't going to chime in on the, "careless," remark, but I want to echo Keith's comments.

There are a lot of factors at play on a spectator or super-special stage(any stage for that matter).

Drivers have to push enough to post a decent time, but not so hard that they go off and loose the race on the first stage.

Rallying is all about being on the edge and trying to maintain control.

I'd ask the following question-would it be careless driving for someone to go out with a mile left on the last stage of the event? I mean, there's only a mile left! ;-)

No offense meant, just wanted to illustrate that you could characterize nearly any, "off," as careless.

Regards, John
