Yeah didn't really see enough angles of the incident but did seem that Timmy shut the door when JK was pretty much already there...but then I'm biased against the Hansens and was positively cheering when Kevin went out (reap what you sow in my opinion)

From the limited clips I've seen I don't think Johan's move was any harsher than the Hansen's 'tap to pass' moves in the last hairpin throughout the weekend. Timmy's move looked more to try and block than actually turn in for the corner to me.

I personally think the Euro commentary team have improved (or maybe I have just got used to them!), but Nick is still awful. If it wasn't for Hal I'd be hitting the mute button during the World races, as the constant errors from Nick are irritating.

Yeah, I agree. As I have said on multiple occasions my big issue with penalties is consistency and, given what has been allowed in the past, I didn't think this move was unjust. I wonder if they would have let it go if Timmy hadn't speared off?

Johan clearly had the pace though and, as you say, Timmy closed the door too late.

Was hoping that there be might be more noises coming from the GCK camp, but I fear we won't see those cars this season now.

I actually thought the RC1e cars looked good in Montalagre: climbing the curbs and getting as sideways as their petrol counterparts. Hopefully they are as good to watch at Spa this weekend.

I have seen the highlights of the last couple of rounds.

The good - the cars are fast. The racing is generally close. It's nice that there is a female in there who is getting stuck in and performing well.

The bad - only 8 cars. 1 of which is constantly off the pace. So 7 really. 5 cars get to the final. Apart from the semis, all the build up heats therefore are pretty pointless.

In 2 rounds I think that I have seen 1 genuine overtake that did not happen at turn 1 of lap 1, or during the joker lap.

Commentator is very shouty.

Almost all the drivers are from Scandinavia. I have nothing against that area of the world, but it is supposed to be a world championship, not a Scandinavian championship.

In all, not great. Need more cars.

Those running the sport need to accept that it simply isn't a global sport, and go from there. Drop the 'World' label and make it a European series....

In fact, most 4 wheeled off-road motorsport simply doesn't pull in lots of manufacturer entries......

Drop the Electric cars as the main event or rallycross dies

Honestly, I think the main issues aren't the electric cars. There's too much other stuff wrong with the championship to put it down to just that.
