Fast Doesn’t Always = Spectacular

It has been a little over one week since the 2017 WRC regulations were announced.

Hayden is on a mission

One of the best things about Hayden Paddon is how hard it is to define him. We should probably classify him as a WRC newb, but his results this year speak otherwise. He is so mature and serious in his approach, yet he is also keeping both feet (and all four wheels, I should add)...

That team is Hyundai Motorsport and their R5 contender should...

Mäkinen to decide whether the existing Yaris WRC is any good

That didn’t take long: yesterday we were left hanging, with unanswered questions concerning big changes happening in and around Toyota’s WRC project, today some answers are already here. I know Tommi Mäkinen is fast, but this is genuinely nice to see. They could have remained silent, of course, but they didn’t and I like that....
