Croatia under way. Evans was quickest in shakedown but all going downhill for Toyota now. Big off for Kalle on SS1 and Ogier with a puncture.

I'm glad to see another new venue. Will be interesting to see how this event pans out.

It panned out very well if you like your finishes close, how about 0.6 seconds!

From nearly crashing out on SS1 to a high profile RTA and then a masterful Power Stage run Ogier snatched it from Evans who must be feeling deflated a bit once again after driving so well up until the last stage where he just buckled a tiny bit near the finish.

Agree 75 cars finished stage 1 of Rallye Portugal.

I was checking up on the Roger Albert Clark Historic Rally the other day.

Entries opened earlier this month and they received 200 entries within 45 minutes of going live!!!

Ogier playing the long game whilst the others fall over when they least need to. Hard to bet against him for another title..

good win indeed for evans, albeit helped by tanaks suspension failure, he didnt look a happy bunny in service area this morning.. but evans kept his head and to give him his dues he brought it home... ogier starting next one first on road i believe...

The punishing of success spoils gravel events IMO, but well done Evans, and Sordo, people used to think he was a tarmac guy!

Did Tanak hit anything or was it a random failure?

Impressed by the speed of both M Sport cars, its been a while since I could say this, hopefully Chris Patterson has been the difference for Greensmith

What amazes me with Evan from the in-car footage he never seems to ever blink his eyes. His face is a picture of 100% focus and concentration.

Sardinia underway.

Tanak setting the pace and some biggish gaps already building up. Suninen off on SS1 and Formeaux in the R5/Rally 2 M Sport car so bad day already from Malcolm

incident filled event, tanak suffers again, evans almost drowns car on last stage, sordo  puts her on her side, ford lose out, but ogier from starting first on road comes through with another win...all good , but there were some serious rocks on those stages...

Hyundia obviously need to look at their rear suspension, but Tanak also needs to look at himself and figure out how to manage risk/reward better.

Hats off to Ogier though, still the most complete driver of the lot

I'm gunning for us to see Ogier equal Loeb then move into management and hand over to Evans who I think is the next most complete - Tanak and Neuville while fast just lack that ability to hold back the 2-5% needed at times

Did anyone see Ostberg's meltdown? Got slapped with a fine/points dop and unlikely to be on Pirelli's Christmas card list..

i saw a cpl of interviews with him post-stage but missed the meltdown, must look,,,

ive also thought ogier might consider stayin on longer with loebs record in his sights...must admit to havin a soft spot for neuville, so close so many times i;d like to see him win at least on championship...
