Volkswagen, please, let them fight, WRC needs duels such as this

In Sweden, mistakes mostly look harmless but their pricetag is often pretty significant. Sebastien Ogier learned about it first hand when he plunged his Polo R WRC off the road on the first stage of the day. He did not try to mask the fact that it was his own mistake and he took the...

Video: Slow crash for Sebastien Ogier, but not slow enough

These offs in Sweden are not even spectacular, in fact they’re quite dull. Car slides off into a snowbank and remains there. Stupid! Of course, it’s great that crashes are such – I don’t think anybody likes 150 km/h rolls and heavy shunts. But snowy incidents must be very frustrating to drivers. The tiniest of...

Making the best possible use of his WRC comeback, Ott is currently fourth, only 2.2 seconds behind Latvala. Impressive run for...

Andreas Mikkelsen fastest on Karlstad super special

Impressive drive, nothing else to say. The conditions were changing rapidly and the surface was all over the place with grip (grip you say?), but Andreas kept his cool and made full use of starting position and well tuned machinery. Not many drivers looked like they were out to push this evening, but Andreas did...

WRC app is back and it’s plain fantastic!

“We want live TV! We want working splits! We want WRC app! We want free cookies!” For months and months these shouts echoed in and around WRC-o-sphere, forcing us to realize how crucial these things are to modern day rally enthusiasts. We had no idea if this shouting would change anything but we kept shouting...
