Reeally late report from me (time issues bla-bla )
Scotland is one of my favourites in the game, since the road character resembles the swedish summer stages in my area quite good. Had a good start with no mistakes up until a km before the end of stage 3, where i took a right hander a bit too tight and clipped a hidden log which flip me over and autoresetted my car.
Got through to service with not to much to repair, and choose hard tyres to maybe have some rubber left for powerstage. Tried to keep a "safe" pace which worked okay up to stage 9 where we hit a bank a bit too hard and put the car on it's side. Eventually it tipped back down on the wheels, but lost all confidence and rhytm for the rest of that stage. Also had a pretty hard tree hit just before finish, luckily without much damage.
Following 2 stages just trying to conserve the car to have a decent run for power stage points. But halfway into PS i drifted wide and smacked my front end into a log pile, which caused some severe damage to my Polo. Crawling devastated to the finish, only to realise i still got a podium finish!! And by that i was able to keep my top five in the overall standings, which is far above my expectations going into this season, super happy!!
Thanks to all the organizing crew, you've made a fantastic job
