Lancia, Auriol, Bugalski and the 90s

Can you remember 1991 and what it felt like and tasted like in the world of rallying? It was all about group A cars back then, ever since group B got banned in 1986 and teams had to rebuild their programmes around different cars and tamer set of rules. One car and one make in...

380 horsies and meaner looks? Sure!

We’re on a roll with the good news around here, aren’t we? By around here I mean in and around the World Rally Championship. We had some fantastic battles recently, Toyota is coming and Hyundai confirmed they are going to build an R5 car, while Citroën is again thinking about luring Sebastien Loeb back to...

R U gonna R5 2, Hyundai?

Lovely title, isn’t it? :( But the occasion really is lovely, for today we have learned that one of our favourite teams (it’s right there on equal points with others, in terms of likability) will also develop an R5 version of their existing WRC machine.

To China or not to China, WRC ponders

First of, this could get a little long and a little incoherent… I wasn’t going to write an essay, merely wanted to list some thoughts. Stop me if you’ve heard this one before, but don’t you think World Rally Championship calendar should include as many regions, continents and countries as is realistically possible? In such...

Toyota’s WRC project, are you OK?

Please allow me to pull out the basic facts, or at least what looks like facts, about Toyota’s WRC programme. According to Autosport, Toyota is now going to switch to another team and another team boss for their return to the World Rally Championship, but at the same time, their (Toyota’s) Cologne based Toyota Motorsport...

Video: Talking about the risks of Rally Poland

The fact that we did not see many issues, retirements and destroyed cars, partly because of the relatively smooth character of Polish roads, does not mean driving and competing in Rally Poland does not involve big risks. Smooth surface usually means high speeds and at high speeds, mistakes can be costly. Not sure how it’s...
