What's up with Sainz losing over an hour ?

What makes you think I don't understand Polish?






Well actually I do very little but enough to order food, swear and find my way in transit.
He is annoying period, but outside the interviews the content is good in any language.

Thanks. Interesting that he notes that the Toyota (with the n/a 5.0l Lexus IS-F engine) is under performing at altitude and that he's expecting some changes (relaxed restrictor?) settings in the future.

Something Robby has complained about in the past is the restrictor sizes for the normally aspirated engines (Hummer's used 6.0 liter engines). I don't know if the Bowler (or other normally aspirated engine) drivers have complained about the same issue.

I'm not finding the boost limits on the turbo charged vehicles:

All I see is that an air restrictor is required based on two engine sizes (5.4l being the divider), # of driven wheels & prototype.

In my mind, compared to how apologetic he was to the other guy... Yeah... that first guy probably deserved more than he got.

I think he's had a fair few years to get his shit together, hasn't he? It's not as if he's only been doing this for a year or two.

Third in 2009 was a hell of a thing, but the if, if, if, If routine, doesn't mean much.

Yes, it would be good to see him get his shit together. Though, he's up against blokes that do just that thing, much much better than he.

i don't know what their problem is... BJ Baldwin too.... i guess those Baja super trucks ain't got the design right for the long haul.... it's pretty easy to see that the Mini's and the Toyota's got their shizzit together.... but you gotta give it up, that when Robby and BJ got their shit runnin', they're stupid fast.... they just don't keep it up...

sorry, but the Mini's are boring.... i wanna see stoopid fast

BJ is out, pretty much destroyed the car in a crash yesterday.

RG has a broken support truck...his only support truck, hopefully they get it fixed and make it to the biv tonight.

If those Mini's would switch to Toyo they could pick up the pace a bit and make it more exciting, I guess that's why there isn't any coverage in the USA...it's boring to watch.

Tortoise and the Hare, most of the Hares are out of contention...all that hop hop hopping around.

More trouble for Robby today. Was doing well but then lost an hour between WP 1 & 2 and continues to lose a little time at each WP.

some of these euros are certainly touchy....

Or the fact that he's all mouth and no results.

That's their problem
They are stupid fast and trying to putting a spanking on everyone else and they have caused their own problems
As I have personally found out through racing
We would always try to take it easy on the 1st lap and usually that would be our fast lap
Not all of the time but Most of the time slower is faster
