Have We Learned Anything?

So, we have one round of the 2017 World Rally Championship in the books. At a first glance of the final results, it doesn’t look like much has changed. Sebastien Ogier went on to win his 5th Rallye Monte Carlo… what’s new, right? However, when we take a look at how things played out last...

It’s Not Supposed To Be This Way…

It wasn’t supposed to happen this way, not ever, but especially not on the very first stage of the very first rally in a new era. This wasn’t the Rallye Monte Carlo that anyone wanted, not the organizers, not the teams, not the broadcasters, not the fans, and most of all, not the individual who...

2017 McKlein Rally Calendars – iconic pieces of rally artistry

December, oh December, how cruel you are to our wallets. No matter where you go and what you do, you cannot avoid buying things. Sometimes you even buy things you need, but mostly it’s about throwing cash and cards at various merchants, just so you can get into that infamous Christmas spirit. And it seems...

“The Televisual Revolution”

Let’s play a little game of Mad Libs. Do you remember this from when you were a kid? You would buy a book with a variety of stories printed with key words missing. You would then fill in those words to create your own individualized story. Below is a press release detailing the WRC’s ambitious...
