Wales Rally GB = Monte Carlo = Sweden = New Z… oh

Let’s give Australia and the FIA’s and promoter’s “high-profile season finale” a chance, but I still cannot imagine a more fitting end to a difficult season than to wrap it all up in dark forests of Wales, soaked to the skin, half frozen, semi pissed and completely covered in mud. At least that is how...

Is There Such Thing As “Too Safe”?

We preach rally safety a lot here on World Rally Blog, and we will continue to do so as long as people keep doing silly things. However, at times, there’s being safe, and then there’s going a bit too overboard. I’m afraid that we saw this today on the Chirk Castle spectator stage on Wales...

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....

Video: Jeremie Billiot does Spain

We may disagree on many things regarding rallying, but I feel those are all minor details, like which car is the bestest rally car ever or who had it easier, Sebastien Loeb or Sebastien Ogier, but we will all unanimously agree about this: Jeremie Billiot (also known as Planetemarcus) is a WRC class enthusiast, a...
