Catalunya, baby!

No time for complete handicapping list, but I will say:
If there is another brand besides Peugeot or Citroen in the top 4 I'll be surprised. Look for Loeb and Bugalski to give serious challenge to Panizzi and Gronholm.

Happy motoring, Tim

Stage one was just canceled and two & three are being threatened of cancellation right now. Spectator problems. What’s with the Spanish and getting in the way at the races?

Sunday 24th March

Peugeot driver Gilles Panizzi has scored a dominant victory on the
fourth round of the FIA World Rally Championship, the Rallye Catalunya
Costa Brava, which finished in Spain today. The Frenchman and his
navigator, brother Hervé, eventually finished 37,3 seconds clear of
their team-mates Richard Burns/Robert Reid after leading from the
first stage on Friday morning. Burns resisted the temptation to try
and close on his fellow 206 WRC driver, but the world champion was
quick enough to fend off third-placed Philippe Bugalski anyway.

Today's six stages again brought good weather but little drama among
the top crews. Sebastien Loeb crashed out on this morning's second
stage, gifting fourth place to Marcus Grönholm and handing the injured
Colin McRae a hard-earned point for sixth overall.
