WRC » Hirvonen: This result will boost everyone


I totally agree with Malcolms comments, Mikko deserves huge credit for his performance and persuit of Ogier in Portugal, the best I have seen him drive for a while, I hope this is a sign of things to come for Mikko, as I have said previously, he still has his old speed in there somewhere and he certainly showed us a glimpse of that on the weekend I am glad I recently decided that I would hop across to Finland later in the season, I think there will be a huge fight there with maybe half a dozen drivers all fighting for the win, it could prove to be the most exciting Rally Finland in years. Well done to Mikko and M-Sport for pushing Ogier so hard It exciting to hear Mikko say that we can look forward to even closer fights in coming Rallies, that's the fighting talk that I was hoping to hear from the Pixie, nothing would make me more happy than to see him fight tooth and Nail with Ogier and come out on top. Fingers crossed for him

WRC » Ogier: Opposition not sleeping


The worrying thing here is although Mikko kept Ogier honest he had to push so hard that his tyres were shot, it would seem that Ogier drove at a more comfortable pace and was able to maintain that pace to the end Mikko deserves huge credit for his performance and persuit of Ogier, the best I have seen him drive for a few seasons, I hope this is a sign of things to come for Mikko, as I have said previously, he still has his old speed in there somewhere and he certainly showed us a glimpse of that on the weekend I am glad I decided I would hop across to Finland later in the season, I think there will be a huge fight there with maybe half a dozen drivers all fighting for the win there, could prove to be the most exciting Finland in years.

WRC » Ogier: I'm not afraid to run first in Portugal


Yeah, I only ever do the self drive tours but yeah is around £60 / £70 for the passes on top. I just paid £700.00 plus flights for the 5 nights in Finland Flying into Helsinki then onto Tampere where I am then only an hours drive from Jyvaskyla where the Rally is based, where as it is a 4 hour drive from Helsinki to Jyvaskyla otherwise so about a grand plus food and drinks But that is upgrading to a 4 start hotel in the host city on the door step

WRC » Ogier: I'm not afraid to run first in Portugal


Yes I am going to Rally Finland again, I have been there a few times among other WRC Rallies, I always wanted to do Rally Finland as a driver but never got round to it, it was hard enough finding Championship money let alone WRC Finland aswell - lol Maybe in a few years time I will return to do historic events in a Mk1 or a Mk2 and do Lahti Rally or something. Dave is a Good Guy at Rally Travel, he puts together a Good package with Good info, but when you visit Finland you really have to pay extra and stay close to Jyvaskyla as the food at the Hotel situated close to the stages is typical Finnish food and you end up travelling an hour back to town for decent food but you cant drink as you have to drive back to the Hotel later for sleep Finland is probably the best one to go on, but not the Cheapest, probably double the cost of Spain

WRC » Ogier: I'm not afraid to run first in Portugal


Well don't count out the others just yet, Mads was Leading in Mexico for a few stages, Mikko is getting his Mojo back slowly, but I think Meeke will really surprise people by the time Finland rolls around, I will be in Finland watching closely so I hope someone other than Ogier wins there Latvala was Leading the WRC for the 1st time in his Career and is in a strong position so he could start to push. I realise Ogier is the most capable driver right now but he may not have it all his own way yet......

WRC » Good progress on Rally Mexico


I didn't know Colin personally although My Co Driver and me were stood right behind him and Gristy in the drivers que signing on before the 1997 Network Q R.A.C. and we had a few Laughs waiting to sort out all the paperwork, he was always laughing and joking, Great Guy ! You can see just how fast he was, there is some amazing in car footage on you tube of him threading the Focus WRC down the stages on Rally GB in 2001, he was flat in 6th for a good few miles and at 8000RPM and flat in 6th in that Focus he would of been pulling around 130MPH on wet Gravel and mud ! If you know which clip I mean you will know how eye popping it really was ...

WRC » Good progress on Rally Mexico


BTW No offence taken Rowdy, It is terribly sad that the Only Two World Rally Champions ever to emerge out of this country were both sadly taken from us at a very early age, neither drivers reaching their 40th birthday Its also sad that both drivers could of easily had several WRC Titles had they not had such fierce competition as Gronholm, Sainz, Makkinnen, Kankunnen, Auriol, Solberg, and of course Loeb back when the WRC was full of Talented drivers and Teams with Big Budgets. The Good old days !!
