Wondering what happened to ACP? Hope he gets the car to Pierce Neige. Maybe the television career has limited the rally opportunities. Hope not!!


By the way, Pat has number 1 on the car.

He mantioned in another thread (in the GroupF section) that he was sitting S*D out because his transmission was waiting on $$$ to be rebuilt.

#1 on his car, but not start order:

From RA web site:
"Richard drew the fourth starting position on Friday, beginning the rally behind Doug Shepherd in his front-wheel drive Group 5 Dodge SRT4. The team had entered an unsuccessful official protest before the race to have their start position changed.

In the end, the veteran Shepherd pulled aside before the Stage 3 start to avoid being passed on the narrow, twisty roads. "There was no sense being ahead of Pat, he goes as fast as anybody here," said Shepherd, who slipped nearly six minutes behind Richard to ninth position after seven stages."

I think that's a sign of a true gentleman.

Richard started fourth in accordance with the year old rule that all cometitors with S.F .95 & higher draw for start position. Another reason why S.F is not and has never been the answer. Natalie did NOT file an official protest of their start position. She DID file an informal request for Stewards' Review. The Stewards upheld the rule (as they should). Doug graciously got out of the way (as he should).

One would have thought common sense would have prevailed; 2WD cars in slippery conditions (even with a good driver) are slower than 4WD cars.
