WRC » Hyundai kicks off gravel tests with 2014-spec i20 WRC


Well its certainly Interesting to see who will sign with Hyundai for 2014. I think Bouffier will be good at finding the best Asphalt set up and Im convinced Huho has lots of Experience for Gravel, but again not wishing to sound Negative but im not sure about Atkinson, although he does have lots of uselful knowledge from his outings with Subaru and more crucially Ford and Citroen I think Petter and Kris would be a Good Team and both would probably jump at a Paid Drive even if it wasn't big Bucks, Maybe they wouldn't get any Wins but if the car is Good straight away podiums would vbe possible and that would be a very Good Result when you consider how many Teams would be fighting it out. I think Malcolm will succeed in Re signing Thierry and Citroen may chase after Meeke to Replace Sordo, but there are still a few others out there, Tanak is still free and would be cheap and a Good Investment, Im sure the teams have quite

WRC » Sordo disappointed with distant fifth in Finland


Well lets be Blunt here, on pace alone he was Lucky to make the Top 10, half of the Top 10 had problems and this is why he finished 5th He started the season saying he wanted 1 more full season to prove himself, well I don't think he needed a Full season - lol Out gunned by Kris Meeke who hasn't been to Finland in 7 years and hasn't done a WRC event in 18 months. That maybe down to Kris rather than Sordo but it certainly didn't do the Spaniard any favours Maybe Citroen will once again Replace Sordo on the Gravel Rallies for the rest of the season as they did in his last year when Ogier was chosen over Sordo to score points on Gravel Rallies before Sordo left Citroen Im Sure Meeke would be a valued asset to Citroen with a proper drive with testing that was specific to the Rally coming up

WRC » Meeke undone by final run through Ouninpohja


He has proved that he has simply been overlooked by Team Managers, he was only 2 seconds off Mikko on the final splits of Oninpohja who broke his own record from the previous year. I would imagine that Citroen must be seriously thinking about replacing Sordo with Kris after that. He hasn't been to Finland for 7 years, he hasn't done a WRC event for 18 months and he was in a comfortable 5th place and right on the pace all Rally, beating Sordo by over a minute on one stage By Comparison Sordo might as well of been in an WRC2 Car, no wonder he didn't go off, I would rather impress and go off than disappoint and finish an hour later like Sordo - lol Kris should be seriously considered for a Factory seat with that performance, such a shame he rolled so close to the end of the Rally, glad they were ok though. Hope he is back in a DS3 real soon.

WRC » Ogier in control as Ostberg and Neuville scrap for second


Just Heardthat Keeke has crashed at the very end of the2nd run of Ounnpohja. He has proved that he has been overlooked, he was only 2 seconds of Mikko who broke his own record from last year. I would imagine that Citroen must be seriously thinking about replacing Sordo with Kris. He hasn't been to Finland for 7 years hasn't done a WRC event for 18 months and he was in 5th place and right on the pace all Rally By Comparison Sordo might as well of been in an WRC2 Car, no wonder he didn't go off, I would rather impress and go off than disappoint and finish an hour later - lol He should be seriously considered for a Factory seat with that performance, such a shame he rolled so close to the end of the Rally, glad theyre ok

WRC » Ogier expects tough Latvala challenge


I wouldn't wish any driver crashes, especially in Finland as crashes in Finland are nearly always very high speed and there is always the risk of serious injury I hope nobody crashes but ultimately someone usually does. Im not sure who will win but it will be a really good fight and who ever does win will know he has come through one hell of a fight to reach the Top Step I am thinking that it will be a 3 way fight, Im sure Mikko knows this is his best chance to win and maybe a 4 way fight if Mads can get on the pace here too

WRC » Atkinson added to Hyundai test line-up


Well I understand that Atko is pretty Good at testing and finding the best set ups, all Hyundai need now is a Quick driver who can get them into the points on Rallies Its Great that there is a new Team in Town, but for Hyundai its going to be an Important challenge to find a Driver who can become a Star in their car Finding Top Drivers in the WRC is getting difficult now as they are all signed up to other Teams, it wasn't that long ago that several drivers were all vying for the same seat, now there are several Teams Vying for a driver, Good time to be an up and coming Top WRC Driver
