Yeah, there would have been no way for this guy to finish anywhere near the top overall in that car against factory backed teams with million $ cars—hell, even Petter Solberg had a great deal of difficultly staying reasonably competitive last season on car that was only a couple years back spec' wise and with a full team of smart mechanics. WRC is in many cases a simple battle of attrition and IMO this guy was able to do so well due to a metric ton of think-on-your-feet ingenuity and a hell of a lot of luck. But when you don't have the big bucks that's what it takes in that sport more often then not. It's also what I love about it most I think.
