Glade someone brought this subject up, I'm thinking the same thing-what's the point of seeding? Is the new system based on "go like hell and crash out VS drive fast and finish??" Lets face it if someone is really fast but fails to finish who wants to be next on the road behind them? Seems to me I remember a time not so long ago where if someone crashed to much they got told "one more and your out", usally slowed 'em down for awhile.
Anyhow if someone in the know could explain the logic behind it I'm sure it would make some sense.:+

I wonder... Since the new system only exists in the mind of John McArthur right now, I guess the answer is "we'll see". I'm not sure I want some loony driving over his head either in front of me OR behind me! But if I'm about to start a 20 mile stage with a fast guy in an EVO following (or a P car on the road in front), I'm damn well going to have a chat with him before the stage about passing.
I think good rally manners eliminates this problem entirely in the middle seeds, and the top guys get 2 min anyway.
