    Just looked at FC website and it says the RAC Rally is on meaning the red route is shut. Don’t know how much of the black is affected (probably not much as its closed from the Grove Link car park).

    Just thought I’d save people a possibly disappointing journey.

    Leave the bike at home and go watch the Lancia Stratos and all of those group-4 Escorts!

    The Lancia Stratos is out unfortunately. It crashed in Dalby last night.

    That’s a bugger! But they are a handful (apparently)

    Yeah the stratos returned a dnf in all stages. Still made it round the courses though. Here it is on the way to the hamsterley stage from Croft.

    Yes that makes no sense: it drove round everything but was no longer competing.

    I was at Croft yesterday – apparently the Stratos was badly damaged on Friday night but was repaired and it’s number changed to ‘0’ so he could drive the route and special stages on Saturday. They said it would be competing normally on Sunday? Sounded awesome at Croft anyway 🙂

    I think that it broke a drive shaft

    So, as a Zero car, he was running as ‘course car’ ahead of the main field.
    That’s good of him – just to keep the spectators happy, rather than chucking it back on the trailer and heading home in a huff. Top bloke.
