Rally Catalunya

Stage 10 completed and Meeke in the lead - these running orders are good for variety but does not assist at all with actually giving us a true understanding of pace - Neuville down in 7th

Ogier will wind down and not go for the win but consolidate 2nd and try and gun through the special stage

seems like it mike, ogier quoted after ss17..

If I want to keep second place, and ahead of my team-mate, I have to keep the rhythm. I've said before, third would be okay but second is better

If we had the same rules back when Loeb was winning all and sundry Ogier would be MILES ahead - FIA don't like Seb Jnr; he's still gunning ahead. Gonna be interesting where he ends up next yr; whether he sticks with Ford or moves on

no doubting ogiers class....if nothing else, hopefully meeke can stay calm and controlled to try to get his confidence back, and maybe help keep his future contract hopes up lol!!

Meeke wins from Ogier and Tanak; Sordo tops the Powerstage
Ogier [if my maths is correct] now takes a 38 point lead in the championship with a maximum 60points from the last 2 rounds [25 for a win and 5 for the power stage]

Maybe I should get myself down to Coffs for the final round

Great to see Meeke having a clean run, when he is going right he really has the pace to match anyone. Ogier has nothing to prove, but his team mate has really impressed me this year, Ott is now 2nd in the championship.
Hyundia must be gutted to lose all 3 the same way, worrying for them. Hanninen was very impressive on the tar, I'd thought his time was up but he must be hopeful to secure something for next year?

Promising myself I'd get to this some time and made it this year.  Kris & Paul winning made it all the more sweeter Very Happy
