Video: This is what WRC spectators live for

A word of warning, do not watch this is you’re prone to sudden outbursts of sobbing and crying, because if you take your rally with a(n un)healthy dose of emotions, the end of this particular video could be too much for you to handle. Of course, I don’t know anything about that and I never...

Jari-Matti Latvala did not give up, don’t listen to him

Calling anything certain or safe in relation to Rallye Monte Carlo is just silly, at best. Because this particular rally will just take your safe prediction and certain conclusion and turn it upside down, inside out and then chop off its head. Remember those cries of joy after Sebastien Loeb’s SS 1 stunner, the king...

Toyota GT86 CS-R3 eyeing competitive debut

Let’s step back from all the excitement of Monte Carlo Rally and look at other rally related news for a moment. For instance, this press release, sent by Toyota Motorsport.

Video: How to fix an amputated suspension

Just one of those things. Never give up. By the way, car number 4, meaning Seb Loeb’s and Dani Elena’s DS3 WRC is moving again, according to Live Maps, but I think it’s not doing 90 kph on that wheel, so probably on the back of a service truck. Hopefully super rally is an option....

You have to see it and feel it and then the dramatic...

Sure, Sebastien Loeb is fast, but…

Let’s play a bit of a devil’s advocate here. Sebastien Loeb had it a bit easier on the first stage, starting well down the order and probably hearing a wee bit of information or two about the conditions and struggles of the other drivers. Even if no such information reached Seb and Daniel, they probably...

Despite a misfire or two, live stream launch was a great idea

The idea behind it was great. I hope this will become a tradition in Monte Carlo and maybe elsewhere too. Live stream of events, taking place before the rally actually begins, with rally crews, rally cars, VIPs and known figures, is a great way to start the new season and bring the atmosphere to millions...

Rallye de France is homeless now

OK, so Sebastien Loeb is retired now and nobody cares anymore for the French round of the Championship, so the local government and authorities had no other choice but to withdraw their support for the Alsace based event? No, not really, even though I suppose Loeb being a local played some part in the past....
