WRC » 'Strongest performance of season' for Meeke

Again, I don't like being critical of Rally drivers but I did say at the start of the season that by the second half of the season Kris would be the star in the Citroen Camp and that Mads would unfortunately be affected by this and his driving would suffer if Kris was to perform substantially better than Mads its strange how one driver can prosper and the other goes down hill, yet they both have the same opportunities and the same machinery. Its a similar story at the M-Sport Team, only the reasons are different. Its a shame for Latvala that he made a poor Tyre choice, I suppose if it had rained as he suspected, it would of been the better choice though, so I guess its just the luck of the draw. Well done to VW for wrapping up the Title, but Well done to Kris for his strongest performance yet. I think now he knows he is comfortable and he has now proved beyond a doubt what he is capable of (given a fair chance). He can just Relax and enjoy the driving from here on.

WRC » 'Strongest performance of season' for Meeke

Cont : I am going to be bold here, if Kris continues to fight at the front in France and Spain and maybe gets a double podium he could well go into Rally G.B looking for his Maiden Victory. I think if he can get on the Podium at least once on one of the remaining Asphalt Rallies, by the time Rally G.B he will of easily shown his value and will be feeling Really confident and under no pressure. I would also suggest that as soon as he has a signed contract for 2015 he will be even more relaxed and there is no way he will see Rally G.B as anything other than his Big Chance to Record his Maiden win in the WRC. Where better for a driver who carries the Union Jack on his Roof Vent to record his first ever WRC win than on Rally G.B. - the United Kingdoms home round of the WRC

WRC » Paddon takes career-best WRC car result

Good solid drive from the youngster, you cant argue with that performance. He was fighting with Mads and Mikko which is a good start. I would say that Hyundai have plenty of choice for next year. They could well chose for any of the following driver combinations : 1 Neuville 2 Sordo 3 Paddon (as a development driver) 1 Neuville 2 Hirvonnen 3 Paddon (as a development driver) Maybe Malcolm can take Sordo if Hirvonnen does indeed go to Hyundai as Sordo does come with strong funding and Malcolm could do with a paid driver to help with the costs. I would also sign Pontus too, but make sure this time it is water tight, unlike when he signed Petter in 99

WRC » Rally Australia eyeing WRC finale slot

I don't really care if they have the Season ending Rally, but I just don't want to see Rally GB pushed from its November slot. This has been attempted before and it didn't work so as the famous saying goes, lets not make the same mistake twice I understand that Christmas time is their summer so this could be a really dry and dusty affair if they get their way. I would be disappointed if the Australians tried to muscle in and take away our slot in November I also understand that they have to compromise with Rally New Zealand for alternative slots in the calendar. It is not a Guarantee that Rally Australia can even feature in the WRC every year, sometimes they have to conceed to Rally New Zealand, so I don't see how they could expect to Nudge one of the Biggest WRC Rallies off its perch, seems like Crapkinson has infected the organisers with his Delerious state

WRC » Distraction fails to deter Kubica

Well maybe not a convincing performance by Mr Kubica, but also not the worst performance either in a WRC Car. That Honour went to Australias very own Chris Atkinson. Kubica crashed as usual, but still made it home ahead of Crapkinson while still trying to learn and hone his Gravel driving skills. Now he will be back on the farmilier and comfortable environment - the Black Stuff, and I think we could see a very strong result in both France and Spain, especially Spain where the roads tend to be wider and will require lines and braking points more conducive to Race circuits

WRC » Atkinson: Not the easiest of weekends

Like I said earlier in the week, Hyundai don't so much need information now they have plenty of that, what they need is Results. I used the word delirious to describe Chris before this event and I even joked that there was more chance of Alex Salmond conceding that we are better together as a Nation than Crapkinson breaking into the Top 10 on the first day. The sad part of that is that if Mads hadn't of had a minor issue on the last day Crapkinson would of indeed remained outside the Top 10 by the end of the Rally, let alone the first day. This Guy needs to save himself from further embarassment or simply stop suggesting that he can fight at the front. Frankly the reason I am letting him have it is that I feel that he constantly offends the current crop of talented Rally drivers by suggesting that he can be faster than them even after long spells away from the sport. I never rated him and I think maybe I was right.
