Comment  With the season only just underway and already four historic meetings; Hockenheim, Imola, Silverstone and Snetterton all in one weekend, it can only add up to one thing; dilution of entries, reduced grids and frustration for race organisers. I never thought I would say this, but, maybe, we can have too much of a good thing?

Retro-Fact   In 1980 Henri Toivonen, at the age of 22, not only became the youngest winner of the five-day RAC Rally but his Talbot Sunbeam Lotus also ended the seven-year Escort stranglehold on the event.
