Blame The Manager?

In a variety of sports, when things aren’t going a team’s way, it’s not uncommon to see the manager or coach get canned regardless of whether it is deserved or not.

Is There A Silver Lining?

We first got a sense that something was up last week during Sebastien Ogier’s first test with the Citroen World Rally Team. Initially, his Citroen C3 appeared with the typical Abu Dhabi decals in place. However, by the afternoon, those decals had mysteriously disappeared. This sudden change set forth a flurry of debate and speculation...

Does Craig Breen Have A Point?

If you’ve been using WRC All Live to keep an eye on the season finale in Australia, you’ve no doubt caught some of the banter between Craig Breen and stage-end reporter Colin Clark. It actually goes back to a few weeks ago during Rally Catalunya. On that occasion, Craig called out Colin for “having a...
