Start for day 1 out, Sam happy going out last chasing Helder; Baredda, Coma and Concalves all happy at the back. Przygonski and Blazusiak happy near the front, time will tell

Bike and quads all mixed - is this a first?

It's clearing with a vengeance at the moment, thunder, lightning and rain - won't last into the rally, but depending on the area it affected it could make for good conditions

What are your thoughts on the black plastic device at the front of the seat. - Air box intake?

Anyone seen Eurosport coverage yet? There were supposed to be some a few hours ago but it was just bicycle racing, martial arts, and UFC.

I see the prologue is over. Cool tracking site with sat views.

Been a while since we've seen Coma racing. HRC, Speedbrain and KTM...should be a good one. More than a few riders could come out on top.

It came on at 11 pm UK time, for about 5 mins or so - Carlton was dubbing

Just happened that I was in the airport in Dubai waiting for a flight and caught it by chance .
