VW decapitoed; Jost could not stand winning all the time

Jost Capito has had enough. Too many victories, celebrations, titles… There comes a time when you just cannot stand it anymore. Always the same interviews, explaining why is your team so good, all while you’re hoping for some challenge, a couple of bad weekends, maybe even a disappointment or two.

Here’s Polo! Don’t let her “gentle evolution” fool you

Meeke picks the devil he knows

And there we go, one of the last remaining pieces of the WRC 2016 puzzle found its place on the big board; Kris Meeke will remain with Citro├źn Racing for the next three years. Now, we should probably go through this bit by bit, because this information contains many layers of good. It never made...

2016 Hyundai i20 WRC, this is it

Let’s get the most important thing out of the way first – she looks great! Whether she is equally impressive and capable on the stages, well, we’ll find out soon enough (in case you’ve lost track of time, we’re approximately one month away from the start of the 2016 WRC season in Monte Carlo). Driver’s...
