last year in galway we could use our own fuel but it was in a separate area for refueling only, what was wrong with that system that worked well last year

That is a very valid point, but if your going to do this are you going to have enough time allowed. With a tight schedule and a cue at the pumps you could either run out of petrol or incur late penealties.whats to stop you fuelling from a pump station on rally route?
Dont tell me a petrol station there for the last 20 years is illegal chase????????
Maybe a nominated service station could be used with the race fuel rig also being present.
The fuel area that was used in galway last year was not a good idea. I was marshalling it and with the best efforts where the organisers had postioned you still got some idiot spectators smoking right beside the area. We even had one co-driver flick a butt out his window in the middle of area.
Having someone smoking beside one or two jerry cans a Bang Bang is bad enough but my view would be that putting 100's of gallons of the stuff in the one area is just asking for trouble unless you are very strict about access to it.
