Should marathon stages be part of every WRC event?

    Yes most definitely they should. The intrigue for 2 days prior to mammoth 55km stage in Mexico was a story in itself. Even though Loeb was 35 – 40 sec’s ahead of Hirv at start of Day 3, everyone was aware that 1 puncture/spin/off on this stage could change the whole rally. If it had have been just a normal stage, we all would have known that Loeb would take victory easily. As it did – the stage threw up a bit of carnage – Atkinson, Block, Ostberg, Latvala, Novikov. Even the 44km stage was marathon in comparison to most stages these days. Keep up the marathon stages I say.
