    Significantly more grip than a desert race though, just don't last long so he's clearly decided he wants grip over longevity. It's only a short stage after all.

    And Quint bettered that. Now first at ASS but Ricky Brabec is set to make an impression judging by his CP1 time!

    FYI Remy... Despres drives a four wheeler now... Coma runs the show in an ASO tennis shirt... oh, and Carlos the matador is still alive and kicking... all be it playing fourth base on the all star team...

    The French are still attrociously parochial though... some things never change... :rofl

    Only JP Garcia looks likely to trouble Brabec over such a short stage.
