Well, first car was only out of parc expose half an hour ago but they are strangely silent on the event's goings on although they have posted the starting order. If they've already gone to Kenton, they might have uplink problems. I think there have been cellphone problems from there in the past.
They said they'll be doing the event scoring, keep an eye open for those updates.
Meanwhile, somebody is leading after day one in Corsica with some other guys hot on his heels.
7 pm PST (2200 at LSPR) updates seem to be clicking
along just fine. Perhaps it's just a matter of making
sure there is a backup data link available (on the part
of Rally America) or not being the victim of caching
problems (on the part of the user).

Yeah, they were great at PFR..... Instantaneous must mean 2hrs later in Canadian. I know we expect them to be perfect and predict stage times so that we can have them before they even happen but they are in a remote location and they are human so be happy with what you get
Good battle between Pasi & Diggins.
EDIT: I see no times on RA, but they were seperated by 3 seconds after SS5. Ramana is in 3rd like 1 minute back (after SS5). Choiniere 4th, O'Sullivan 5th, McGeer 6th, Buffum 7th. Mitchell was 1 minute ahead of Utecht. Whiteman ahead of Burmeister by quite a bit.

I agree that in Maine the services was great! and I believe I am starting to sound like what I am opposed to which is people whining about a service that is given to them, so I will apologize and drop the subject So, Sorry for the whining.
