    WRC in Turkey x2 frogs in the lead.

    CNN reports that Pannizi in the 206 WRC leads Sainz in the Xsara WRC in the rally of Turkey. Grohnlom is in 12th, dissapointing for him.
    Good to see the froggies dong so well.

    LOL.....lol. so he should.
    Im still amazed when this happens at top level motorsport. (ie F1 and WRC). Did he rip a fuel line/ break a filter, leaking tank/injector??.

    You'd have to wonder if they simply forgot to fill it up in the middle of checking all the computers & high tech crap they stuff on board these things. There must be so much technology they have to keep a check on & so many knobs & dials, it has to get confusing enough to overlook something simple.
    Remember last year when Bugalski was leading(?) a rally and accidentally turned the fire extinguishers on & had to withdraw? mallet mallet

    If it ain't broke, use a 12" shifter.....that usually does the trick!!

    The refueling isnt done by the team during service. It's done at a seperate refueling point outside of service. This is done by FIA reps and the team just requests how much they want.
    Keeps the fuel all the same that way so no one can cheat.
