I wish for ice and snow, also some sun and shade

Weather can be your friend or foe, it can make things more enjoyable and doable, or it can turn even the most mundane things, such as standing at the side of the road, waiting for (rally) cars to drive by, into living hell. Casual fans will complain, to them even few drops of rain are...

A better look at 2015 Volkswagen Polo R WRC

Here’s a better view of Volkswagen Motorsport’s new rally weapon. Usually camera phones and similar “devices” aren’t really your best friend if you’re trying to present something properly, so forget about those early photos from Facebook, Twitter and such and enjoy these fine images, made by team’s official snappers.

And finally, here she is, Her Champion Majesty, the Polo R WRC

For once, I’ll let picture speak for itself. It’s a stunner and if liveries are any indication, and I know they hardly are, we’re...

Livery, we have another car livery, guys! It’s Kubica’s!

Anything that uses gray and orange, or at least orange, immediately gets 6 out of 10 points in my eyes.

One of those teams is Hyundai Motorsport, but they have more exciting news to...

Even though World...
