WRC » Rally Australia eyeing WRC finale slot


In short the Ozzies have brokered a deal with New Zealand and in the interest of continuity and being able to obtain longer term Event sponsorship they will each have a run of 3 years in the WRC then hand over to the other country while they work on the Sponsorship and Route etc for 3 years time when they come back As suggested to me this morning I also believe that after 2015 they will give New Zealand the two fingers and shaft them in the same way that they are trying to shaft us Brits by stealing our November slot and with it the Calender closing slot in the Championship. I personally Love the New Zealand Rally, its smoother and cambered roads are better to drive, it has Beautiful scenery, more pleasant climate and people, no Poisionous spiders and snakes, and I believe should be a permenant place on the calendar like other Great Rallies like Monte, Sweden, Finland and GB should also be.

WRC » Rally Australia eyeing WRC finale slot


I love the Stages further to the North like Penmachno, Dyfi, Dyfnant, Clocaenog etc, for me these are the best stages. There are lots of awesome stages and back in the 90s these used to get millions of spectators watching the stages, the roads were jammed solid and it was fun trying to get to and from the stages trying to avoid the traffic jams But the Buzz of the Rally was Huge, Loads of night stages in the Dark and the Rain, lots of mud and pleanty of sideways action and Loud Anti Lag systems. If you ask me its how Rallying should be. Spectators would trade nice wide roads and starbucks every mile for plenty of action and fun when spectators would camp out on stages and sleep in their cars overnight This is what separates the best form of Motorsport (Rally) from other sports like F1 and Circuit racing in general. I am hoping both the Sport and our WRC Rally will return to Glory days again. think an early December date would be good, more chance of snow and Ice too

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 » ERC: Al-Rajhi fights back for Cyprus victory


Well Done to Al-Rajhi, it is pretty obvious why he chooses the more expensive RRC, the cheaper R5 seems to have its share of mechanical issues and is no where near as strong as an RRC as his rival discovered In Fact the RRC is even more expensive than a WRC as it is basically already a Fiesta WRC but with a kit that changes it to an RRC and the kit is extra ontop But the RRC is always the better option providing that the driver has the extra budget as most of the Middle East drivers seem to have and in fact the WRC2 Category is good value as most drivers would prefer to be fighting for the Victory in WRC2 than lagging in the lower reaches of the Top 10 overall driving what is essentially the same car with a bit more power

WRC » Rally Australia eyeing WRC finale slot


Yeah, I was hoping that Ari would beat Todt, but maybe Ari was viewed as Bias towards the WRC where as Todt has been both the Team Boss at Peugeot with the Group B cars (Ironically Vatanens Boss at the time) and also Team Boss at Ferrari F1 so he was considered to be a better overall candidate due to his understanding of F1 and Racing in generally. I think Ari has a lot of Finnish experience in Politics though so both candidates had their advantages. Maybe one day the Rally GB Oganisers can find a Proper Sponsor like Shell or something and then the Rally can be spread over various parts of the country, but obviously while the Welsh Government personally sponsors the Event it is only ever going to be held in Wales. I can say that Wales doesn't really have much, but I am extremely Proud that Wales has kept Rally GB alive since 1999 by personally Funding our WRC Event, something I don't ever see Muppet Milliband or Crafty Cameron ever doing for our Nation

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
