I had a great time working crew for Frick, we took 4th overall and were the fastest 2wd car. Car was well sorted, but lost the power steering towards the end.
I agree the cosworth was a beast, and it was cool to see such a machine in person.
It's true rally is tough to appeal as a spectator sport. When I spectate, I view it as a chance to go drink in the woods and watch cars go by.
