It wasn't that flowing, the organisers filled the road with rocks instead of gravel. I think Gocbeyli and especially Ulupelit was suppose to be the flowing stages, while Riva was considered the most difficult stage of the rally.

Most of us are predominately Kimi fans. Kimi has attracted lots of new fans to WRC.

I liked the WRC before Kimi, but I think he has attracted a lot of fans to the sport. This year has finally seen a bit of resurgence in terms of quality after a few years of simply Loeb and Hirvonen/Gronholm. Since 2003/4, there have been only a couple of drivers there but now we have many

yep
so the discussion is mainly kimi based ... but we do appreciate the other drivers , but we dont follow them closely

Boudica , well i thought the stage didnt have that many tight corners ... perhaps its wider then .

I would surely like Kimi more and would follow in whatever he does. Even fishing for that matter :p

But on the other end i have loved WRC so much that no matter what happens from hereon, Irrespective of kimi is there or not, i shall always keep a tab on this genre.

For me the excitement and liking for this sport has just grown multiple folds. something what Kimi did to me when he was in sauber. I have experience similar if not better feeling this year with Kimi in WRC.

I would just end it by saying, In Kimi I hugely believe and will follow him till eternity and for WRc, its an added passion and Love to the list of form of sports i like to follow.

So definitely WRC is here to stay with me and Kimi was and will always be bigger than anything for me. so thats the way it stays. :)
So its gonna be a mix of Ravishing Black and White for Kimi Raikkonen this season

Block says Riva test is roughest ever
By Charlie Contadeli
Ken Block has described the 27.17-kilometre Riva test on Rally of Turkey as the roughest stage he has tackled during his career.

The Monster World Rally Team driver is back in action following his retirement on the opening stage of the event on Friday.

After completing the first run through the Riva stage, Block said: “It’s the roughest I’ve been on in a rally, no doubt. I spent the whole stage trying to figure out how somebody decided it would be a good idea to make a road using rocks so big. I thought I’d got two rear punctures it felt so bad. I just backed off in the end just to get some mileage.”

Block admitted he was struggling for confidence following his early exit on day one when he broke the steering arm on his Ford Focus on a submerged tree stump.

“I wanted nothing to do with rallying until about 8pm I was that disappointed,” said Block. “Eventually my co-driver convinced me to watch our recce video to prepare for today’s stages.”

Personally if you ask me, i would love if kimi continues in WRC. I want him to write down his name in the history book. You know what i mean.
Unlike most of Kimi fans here instead of F1 i would want Kimi to continue with WRC.

But F1 is also a tempting and lucrative sport.

Whatever Kimi opts for next year and year after that i would always crave for him in Rally.
So its gonna be a mix of Ravishing Black and White for Kimi Raikkonen this season
