Appreciate the updates! Not good to hear Delecour and Andolfi are out.
How much experience does Delecour and Andolfi with RWD? Watching the 4WDs struggle has me thinking the RWD 124 is probably extremely difficult to navigate.
Francois Delecour, that is 54 years old, has recent experience with RWD since till last year was driving a Porsche in R-GT class (he won the R-GT cup).
Andolfi instead, that is 23 years old, has no experience with RWD cars. His partecipation was a last minute to substiture another pilotr. He will drive a R5 car in WRC2 for 7 races, probably a Hyundai i20 from Rally of Corsica.
Noberasco, that is a non professional driver, but finished the race, 45th.
Fascinating. Thanks MJAB.
Side note: I've been driving "Monte Carlo" on my Dirt Rally video game the past few days. That corner is not nearly as slick virtually...
The problem with Delecour car (number 21) was the oil plug of the differential.
Any word on if a 124 Rally will be represented at Rally Sweden?
I do not think so. It is not on the entry list,

The other car with the driver selected by Hooningan.
She's a really tidy driver. Shame she was let down by bad prep on the day, though..
