We travel to Corsica with Francois Delecour on a boat (not really) for Round 12 of the 2001 WRC. Jesus Puras scores his first and only WRC win, William forgets what rally we're covering and lots of 2001 silly season speculation gets proven to be downright wrong.

Some guy called Sebastien Loeb does quite well in Sanremo, the 11th round of the 2001 WRC.

We'd like to dedicate this episode to the late Martin Holmes, an inspirational man.
