Citroën is out for a moment, but they’ll be right back

Aaand, they’re out! But not out out, as many of us feared, fortunately. Now, I’m not saying things cannot change, but I am fully confident in Citroën Racing’s ability to rebuild its World Rally Championship programme around the new car for 2017. I don’t think this is just an excuse to dive below radars in...

Fourteen WRC rounds (sort of) confirmed for 2016

I cannot call any calendar of events “confirmed” as long as there are still stars or asterisks or whatever you call those little bugs that are always getting in a way of a good announcement. Yesterday, the FIA released a list of events and dates for next year’s World Rally Championship season, and as expected,...

Put the Camera Away!

I have always loved photography. Long before I spectated my first rally, I was fascinated with the skills and techniques needed to capture a moment in time. When rallying entered my life, I became enthralled with the challenge of trying to combine the environment, the car, and the time of day into a memorable photograph....
