Here Here (or Hear Hear) to that.
Harking back to the days of real rallying in the '70s.
An old chum of mine caused the rules to be changed. I believe you now have to have at least 1 wheel on the ground when you cross the time control/finish line.
This rule came about after the person in question crossed the finish of Brechfa 2 in the Welsh Rally above head hight in a wheels up/roof down configuration.
The powers that be thought that this was a tad dangerous.
The car was a works replica Mk1 Escourt BDA. I say was
because the only straight panel when he eventually landed was the flitch panel under the screen.
