WRC » Rally Australia eyeing WRC finale slot

Who do they think they are? They should be thankful they're in the WRC. They should get what they're given, not trying to get the final round!! Rally NZ is a far better event that should be in the WRC, not Australia. As for the final round, it should be RallyGB, but it needs moving later, to after the F1 season had ended. The event used to get the F1 writers covering it, but not anymore. Now it's lucky if it gets any mention from the national press. Not helped by being based solely in North Wales.

WRC » Positive debut for Toyota’s GT86 CS-R3

The red car in the photo is from Rally Finland, and is a private project run by Tommi Makinen Racing, for the Toyota president Akio Toyoda. It's basically an Impreza in a GT-86 shell. The 'official' GT-86 CS R3 ran as course car in the hands of Isolde Holderied. [EDITORS NOTE - STORY NOW UPDATED TO SHOW CORRECT PICTURE. APOLOGIES FOR CONFUSION - CRASH.NET]

WRC » VW commits to WRC until 2019

Should be Good News, and on paper it is. However, what has made VW sign up for another 5 years? Will they get their way with the 'shoot out' which has no place in Rallying. I fear for the formats of WRC events, even less Endurance, and more gimmicks. I hope I'm wrong. What will the 2017 car regs bring? Hybrids? If so, Toyota will likely join, if not then they won't. I can't think of other Manufacturers who might be interested, apart from possibly Opel. All the others seem more interested in the WEC and who can blame them? As for Ford, I really don't know, if it's the US arm that controls the budget, then I won't be holding my breath, it's NASCAR and TUSC were their money is going.

WRC » Matton: Citroen approach 'different' for 2014

Duval?? Surely a backwards step. In terms of talent, there were few better. However, it needs more than talent to succeed. Hard work and discipline are other qualities needed. Something Francois didn’t have. I also don’t think he was managed or advised properly. He should have stayed at M-Sport Ford, and I’m sure he could have been a success under the tutelage of Malcolm. But, he didn’t. His time as a Factory driver has been and gone.

F1 » Kate Walker: The manifesto has landed

The difference between Max and Jean is at least Jean recognised there is a world of Motorsport besides F1. Apart from bringing back a World Championship for Sportscars, he hasn't done a great deal. And his efforts towards the WRC aren't bearing fruit. I think he probably deserves another term. What did David Ward know about non-F1 Motorsport??? Did he even comment on it?
