I agree with Ghostrider. I think this may be a good shot for Richard and the Impreza, especially after all the good results the Impreza got during testing in the rough stuff.

And on a side note, I would nominate Arai as the second points driver. He proved he can hang with the best at Cyprus, and he had a very good finnish in Greece last year.

Colin is on a hot streek . Acropolis is a rough rally. I think that the Ford , Peugot and Mitsubishi are up to scratch in the reliability department.

Cool

Richard will come from second or third to win on leg 3, Carlos will come in second, Tommi third (he finishes this one), Petter's car will explode in midair after launching off a cliff, 2 Pugs will be out by the end of leg 2, and Colin's car will overheat and die on the next-to-last stage.

If that all happens, somebody's buying me some SWRT gear as a prize.

I think that Sainz or Collin will win, with Burns coming into a close second. As far as reliabilty, the Fords have gotten better as the year has gone on. I don't see the Mitsu or Peugot hanging in there. Too rough for them I believe.

I picked Richard to win Cyprus and he darn near pulled it off, didn't he? See Shik's t-shirt giveaway post.

It's Solberg who needs rethinking. Nominate Toshi Arai - he's starting to show that he's not just some FHI fave for the home crowd.

Seriously though, the Ford bunch is looking stronger and stronger every rally. Mitsu and Peugeot are having problems and I've got to think Skoda has to score a podium soon or else they'll pull out of WRC.


Go team!

(edit: I just like saying "Skoda" and can't fathom that whacked logo of theirs, even after visiting their website. Will Juha ever come back?)

Grimlock better hope no Pugs go out tomorrow because there are already two out.

Gronholm hit a rock and lost oil from his sump. Auriol's clutch failed.

Oh, and Arai is also out (didn't read why, though).

Unhappy

Ryouga: Arai went out due to fire - dunno if cause same as Solberg's in Cyprus. Bummer. Cool that Markko won his first ever stage.

PS: Oh yeah..."Skoda."

Thumbs up

It's all good. Now all Petter has to do is make his cliff launch and things will be set up nicely...

Ross N.

Both driver and co-driver will make it out of the wreckage unharmed, btw.

Come now, not everyone

Sucks about Arai. That's why I'm not a betting man

I don't wish bad on anyone, but if both Fords break tomorrow, I won't be crying

Go Team Subaru!
