The weather has been wet all day.  There are a few technical issues with getting results back to Rally HQ, we're working on it as best we can.

The presentation ceremony will commence from approximately 15:45 Sunday 23 August at Burswood as the cars return.  There are no driving events at Burswood.

It's believed that Neil is currently in Europe testing with Toro Roso F1.


Alistair Mcrae is dropping back does he have a problem? (Jim)


Nothing wrong with his car, he's running the wrong tyres for the weather and is therefore finding conditions challenging.
