Rally Chile in progress. Tanak leading by 30 seconds from Ogier. Neuville crashes out of third on stage 8. Meeke having a nightmare rally. Drove stage 8 without a windscreen after rolling on previous one.

Neuville's off seem to have been a big one. I've only just sat down to watch some stages now. Lets hope he and Gilsoul are okay but I believe they have asked for medical assistance and stage has been red flagged.

There was some rumours of a leg fracture for Thierry so it’s great news to hear he is well.

Anyone know why the live stages and daily report just stopped on BT Sport a few rallies back? All I can find now is the hour long review of the full weekend.

I’m not sure but it was never reliable anyway. I often had it set to record only to find ****in tennis when I went to watch it. I got WRC ALL LIVE this year and I love it.


Glad Thierry and Nicolas are well

That happened me a few times but it was always repeated later so I used to record it at 2/3 am and never any issues.

Cheers, I've got them set to record, couldn't find day 1 tho, and day 3 isn't on till tomorrow.
I couldn't find any of the daily shows for Argentina tho which is strange if their doing some but not others.

Meeke given a 1 minute time penalty for removing his windscreen in a control area. I think it's fair to say he is slightly pissed off.

He really needs to keep his mouth shut. He's an employee of Toyota, not an individual rally driver. His bad mouthing of Citroen and now this latest episode aren't what you expect from a professional.

After the awful news about Manus Kelly's death last weekend it's nice to see something positive about Irish rallying this morning.

I wish Craig and Paul the best of luck. I hope the car suits them. It seems to be a (WRC) one off for Finland right now but he will also do Rally Estonia. If he puts in a good performance you'd never know it could lead to more.

Obviously, after last weekends events, it’s difficult to be too excited, I know one of the first messages I would be receiving without any doubt would be from Manus... However, we have to be very thankful. I have had incredible support from so many people during these last difficult months, and they all know who they are. Paul and I are determined to do the best job physically possible during our time, and we cannot wait to get started with our new team.

Thank you, everyone, for making this happen, it means the world to me.

Craig Breen came home from a great showing in Finland to take the win in the Ulster Rally in a Hyundai i20 R5 and with that the Irish Tarmac Championship. He and Paul have put in some really good performances this year I hope it leads to a WRC drive next year.

They put in some very good performances this year in, I think, 5 different type cars.
Really happy for both of them although a full time WRC drive next year will be hard to get.
