Nice to see Paddon comes in 5th place. At least Meeke finished and it was above his team mate Laughing

aye chris could.ve been worse... day 1 did the damage, he had several impressive times days 2 and 3 but too much to make up...needs to remember to temper his attacking style a bit more maybe...good result from young evans too, did well to hold his nerve....

How many snow rallies has Neuville done? Very impressive pace and surprised me in a positive way!

I agree - great run from Neuville - would have liked Mikkelsen to have beaten Ogier, especially as Mikkelsen was in last years car!

Just back in Galway from Rally Sweden! Fantastic event - got 10 stages and visited Service twice, and saw Kris and Paul working hard at the Remote Service on Saturday. Two models caught my eye too! So came home with the Sordo Hyundai from Monte 2013 with the night lights, and the Blomgvist Saab from 1975 Swedish.......40 years ago!

Wow wow wow. Im embarassed to admit that despite being a very keen rally follower my experience is all arm chair based. But if i did go, i have 3 events id love to do - rally dorset/sunseeker which was all planned for last year but got pulled at the last minute because of pfaffing around by the msa, a warm weather event such as sardinia/corsica ( corsica is back next year as alsace cant get local funding) and a snow event in sweden. Very very jealous! Pricey to do Sweden?

If you want a good rally then do the Tour of Mull Paul. You won't be disappointed.
