Sure, Sebastien Loeb is fast, but…

Let’s play a bit of a devil’s advocate here. Sebastien Loeb had it a bit easier on the first stage, starting well down the order and probably hearing a wee bit of information or two about the conditions and struggles of the other drivers. Even if no such information reached Seb and Daniel, they probably...

Despite a misfire or two, live stream launch was a great idea

The idea behind it was great. I hope this will become a tradition in Monte Carlo and maybe elsewhere too.

You could literally sell me anything, if it’s wrapped...

British Rally Championship returns to 4WD cars in 2016

All reasons against 4WD cars aside, it’s really the only sensible solution for British rallying, and I would think any rallying in general. If a country and its drivers can afford it, then by all means it should be 4WD cars, ideally built to latest specifications and supported by major car manufacturers that are not...
