Toyota: “We’d like to repeat our successes in the WRC”

Why Group B had to be THAT reckless, senseless and careless, why? Those cars were too wonderful, too exceptional, too out of this world to be allowed to just vanish like that.

It’s time to Mexico!

Counting down hours before the start of round three of 2015 World Rally Championship, the always entertaining and challenging Rally Mexico.
