Default Will there be protests over the Special Stage jump at Rim?

I'm sure anyone who attended ther 12:15 Special Stage on Saturday noticed that the inside line of the jump (in front of the bleachers) was the line that caused numerous cars to DNF, starting with the very first pair, the green Mitsu driven by the Irishmen.

During the stage at least three or four other cars were DNF'ed and others damaged, while the outside line was smooth.

(To be fair some of the biggest air was from a K5 Blazer and a pre-runner style truck on that line, both nosed hard on landing but kept going.)

The problem appeared to be a kicker lip on that line, while the outside was smooth.

Anyway I was talking to the owner of the 89 Porsche 911 who launched off the inside lip and ruined his undercarriage on landing (his description) and he was pissed, he said it wasn't the same lip as Friday night and that he heard all kinds of people were damaged on that line. He was talking about starting some kind of protest letter to the Rim organizers. Wonder if anything will happen with that...and their response?
