WRC » Kubica 'happy' with Rally Sweden performance


Matt Never found himself leading a WRC event, nor did he set a string of fastest times on a given WRC Event. Kubica has been making solid progress and Sweden was Far from his worst performance, the Three big set backs in Sweden that cost time were Two Mechanical issues and a Time penalty, his driving was better than most of the other Top drivers who nearly all went off and made errors. Richard you need to actually follow the Rally before you comment Your comment makes me wonder if you were watching a different Rally than the rest of us

WRC » Abbring exceeds expectations on WRC car debut


Well, as I said before this guy is a very talented youngster and I am only surprised that it has taken this long for a Manufacturer to pick him up and stick him behind the wheel of a WR Car I think he did really well for a Debut WRC drive on such a difficult and specialised WRC event like Sweden. He didn't bin it and he set some reasonable times beating Henning Solberg on several stages and Henning has more experience than most in Sweden He would of been the perfect young driver for Toyota to use to develop the new Toyota WRC and at the same time develop him as a driver for a Full WRC programme starting in 2017. I hope this guy raises a few eye brows as the season rolls on

WRC » Latvala defiant, makes set-up breakthrough


Not the best of news for drivers and Rival Teams though, Latvala has been very Potent in the last 2 seasons and watching him and talking to him in Finland last year he was never in doubt about the result there. He wanted that win and he took it If he has found a tweak with the new car that will allow him to be even faster that is just demoralising for the others, the only drivers who would be protected by this recent discovery would be his team mates obviously Lets see what happens in Mexico though, that will demonstrate how significant this development really is. If Ford, Citroen and Hyundai are left wondering what the 3 Blue Blurs were on the stages then we are in for a 3 horse race this season and they may as well award VW the Trophy now

WRC » Evans beats Meeke to sixth in Sweden


This really does show how far Elfyn has developed. Meeke was contracted to Citroen because he showed he had the speed to compete for regular Podiums, and now Elfyn has beaten him on an event where both drivers were competing on an even playing field for just their second time there. I am sure that Elfyn will even beat his team mate on occasion later this season. He really is coming on strong now. I think Meeke will continue to Impress too and I can see a good few podiums coming for him this season Tanak is also doing really well, comfortably running in 4th on Monte until sliding wide and slipping down over that bank, same again in Sweden but got to the finish still in 4th. I think he will go well by the time we get to Finland and he is feeling more confident in his driving

WRC » Kubica 'happy' with Rally Sweden performance


Yes I agree Cobalt, the one thing that I admire about Kubica is that he is defiant about beating the odds. His hand is obviously a real handicap for him but he keeps coming back season after season hoping to beat the odds and break through as a Top WRC driver He is slowly mastering all the challenges that the WRC throws at him and he has recently been banging in some really Top times. Monte Carlo shows he has an incredible ability to control the car on slippery surfaces whist reading and understanding the grip levels perfectly I am interested to see how he puts everything together this season and develops

WRC » Latvala defiant, makes set-up breakthrough


Well, all is not lost it would seem..... While Latvala will nail it on every Rally from here on in, maybe Ogier will tend to play a little safe now he once again has a comfortable cushion and perhaps not risk everything trying to stop Latvala from winning Latvala seems to be both Confident with his new discovery and determined that he can win Rallies and maybe catch up with Ogier. At the end of the day it only requires one slip from Ogier and the Game is back on again. It would be nice to watch Latvala do all the winning for a change, love the Jackets btw, gotta get me one of those

WRC » WRC photographer injured in Rally Sweden shakedown accident


And also the Orgainisers should clamp down on the free movement of the the Media during the events. like I mentioned above, a life is a life at the end of the day, and carrying a fancy Canon Camera will not protect you from a fast approaching Rally car at 110mph if its driver has lost control and it goes on to wipe out anything or anyone in its path. I have seen on numerous WRC events organisers being over the top tough on sensible spectators stood in good safe places, yet the media ambles by and are in no rush to move when a Rally car approaches, yet the organisers do nothing This needs to clearly change. Media should not ever be allowed to stand in places that are obviously dangerous. They should be allowed to stand inside a slow speed corner for example, but you see them in paces you know are dangerous should something go wrong

WRC » WRC photographer injured in Rally Sweden shakedown accident


Obviously I hope the Photographer is fine and isn't too badly hurt, but as a retired Rally driver I have often wondered when the F.I.A and the organisers of Events will tighten up on the free movement of the Media. Yes they need great access to cover the action, but all too often they are allowed to stand in seriously dangerous places on the events. A life is a life at the end of the day. Again, as a retired Rally driver I see organisers allowing spectators to stand in areas where a Rally car could easily wipe out a few dozen spectators if something went wrong at high speed, also I have seen areas where the spectators wouldn't be in any great danger, yet the organisers ask them to move back or worse, to move on. Im not saying we should ever again allow famous scenes like Portugal in the mid 80s but spectators should be allowed to stand closer to the action in areas that are hard for a Rally car to end up. to be continued...
