Alastaro proved to be difficult for our two cars. Liam blazed the tires on the start line twice, while Antti shook and smoked the tires on every qualifying session. 

 

It didn't seem to make any difference whatever we tried to do.

 
 

We ended up qualifying 7 and 8. On the positive side we found the cause of all the problems with Liam's car this year.

 

 

So first round out for Liam the car was back on form with a nice and soft 4.18 win over Janne Ahonen. Next pair was Antti, and the car shook again. Antti did a great pedal job, but lost with a 4.22 to Stig's 4.18.

That was the end of the race as it started to rain.

Gardermoen Norway next.
