I didn't do a perfect run in Finland, about one bigger mistake per stage, but I'm ok with that. Had a funny moment within sight of the finish line on the rainy stage (which went really well otherwise) where I did a weird flip, got stuck on a tree trunk for a bit, then fell nose-first to the ground before slowly tilting back on my wheels. Should have tried to record the replay or something.

The BMW is really fun to drive BTW. A bit like the Group B Manta, but slightly easier to handle around the corners. Too bad about the horrible noise it makes...

Germany done. Terrible as always.The stages i had clean run, i matched with Skully, in fact 3rd stage was exactly same time as Skully got. But yeah, tarmac doesn't work for me somehow, i don't just feel the car.

S1: 2 spins on hairpins, both with reverse needed
S2: Clean
S3: Clean
S4: Small trip to the field
S5: Spin at the hairpin

I hit my one-big-mistake-per-stage groove again. Ended up third as usual.

I had a good run. No mishaps at all. Was a very fun drive. I like Germany a lot. I have no issue with tarmac.

Greece Done. Tried to drive carefully to not make any mistakes. Still did on the first 2 stages. I think i messed up the Gearbox setup also, felt like 3rd and 4th gear didn't have enough power on the uphill sections and lower gears were on the engine rev limit. Anyway, whats done is done.

S1: Crash into Ad board on hairpin, reverse needed
S2: Went straight on hairpin, crashed into post, reverse needed
S3: Clean
S4: Clean
S5: Clean

S3: Rear wheel went into ditch, had luck, took some time to get back to road
S4: Clean
