WRC » Tanak ready to roar in second half


Wow what a breath of Fresh Air !! I know that he will stay with the Team and appreciate Malcolm giving him a 2nd chance and with Ford due back any time soon in an official capacity things are only going to get a whole lot better He is Raring to go, or more like Roaring to go as the Title says, I think he could take a win the way he is driving and with his confidence being sky high Its going to be a race with Mikklessen as to who gets their 1st win 1st

WRC » ‘Character’ the key for future of WRC


This is Great news as I have long said that it would be quite easy and cheap to simply increase the restrictor to say 38m or even 40mm, but 36mm is a good start. Maybe the cars will pop and bang more too Also the revised aggressive look will be welcome news for fans although there is an argument that the current WRC cars look closer to showroom cars in appearance and there for will help sell more production cars The final point is the added width. It would be fine if all the cars were the same width, but they wont be. The wider cars may suffer badly in the ruts as did the Toyotas back in 1994 when they went wider than the rest and the cars jumped out of the ruts all the time Overall a good direction for the cars to go though

WRC » New Toyota boss Makinen looks to bin Yaris project


He obviously knows that the car aint upto much and he doesn't want to try and fix a car by putting a plaster on it and hoping for the best He wants to start from scratch and deliver a car that will restore Toyota as a force to be reckoned with once again in the WRC With new Rules and a radically different WRC car for 2017 and beyond Teams will be better off starting with a Clean sheet of paper anyway, especially as the current testcar hasn't been proven against its competition

WRC » Toyota secure former WRC champion Makinen as team principal


I was only saying last year in Finland that Tommi should be given the task of Leading and Running the Team. My only surprise is that it has taken this long to announce it. He is the absolute perfect guy for the job. He still knows how to drive, he was just as fast as Jari Matti and Ogier on that stage in the GT85 in Finland last year He knows and understands everything from a drivers perspective and he knows how to Win Titles obviously. The car even has TMG on the grille, Tommi Makkinens Guns lol Seriously though, I think he will start from scratch with a new car, I think this was part of the Deal and now he has gotten the Green light he wont wait long to unveil the all new car. Christmas at the latest !

WRC » Wilson: Tanak really coming of age now


Here is a thought, Imagine if Ford announced their Official Return to the WRC for 2016 and Malcolm could persuade Latvala back to Ford to crate a Super 3 car Ford Team to star along side Tanak and Evans, simular to how VW operate now Imagine Tanak and Latvala taking dominant wins like VW are doing now Evans being the Mikklessen equivalent and learning his trade while setting the odd fastest time and collecting regular podiums. Not so much a dream but a goal for Malcolm

WRC » WRC Promoter thrilled with 2017 revamp


With Manufacturers coming back to the WRC it is looking Good for the future of the WRC. Now the Sport needs more commercial attention and investment. F1 has a lot more hype and Build up before each Race. WRC has none of that. WRC needs to be better promoted at a Higher level and the cars exploited more. Pundits like Damon Hill, Martin Brundle, David Coulthard and Jonny Herbert all make the Sport more interesting and bring more Fame to the Sport. WRC doesn't enjoy the same Awe as F1 and that needs to be worked on

WRC » Latvala: I couldn't believe that!


Jukka, just be patient with him Jari Matti is one of few people who can unlock super fast speed and lets be honest the WRC would be worse off without him not better Don't wish away our Top drivers. Crashing and speed is what makes the sport interesting, if all the drivers were as predictable as Ogier we would have no Sport LATVALA IS IMPORTANT TO THE WRC

WRC » Wilson: Tanak really coming of age now


It would be just fitting if Tanak like his Mentor Markku Martin could take Finland by storm and give Ford the win there just like Markku did some 11 odd years ago - in that weird looking 2004 Focus WRC. He possesses the ability to surprise and it is clear that he has the Raw speed but that is only available when his confidence is sky high. Jari Matti also had that little bit extra last year over Ogier in Finland, only someone like Tanak and Latvala could find that little something extra to beat Ogier in a lace like Poland or Finland. It will be interesting. Maybe Mikklessen will have something to say about that. After all,he came very close in Poland
