2014 Hyundai i20 WRC Car.

The new Korean outfit unveiled their 2014 and full driver lineup.  Hellix (Shell performance oil) will ablaze on the size.  With “N”, Hyundai’s new performance division.  They boasted a healthy lineup of up and coming, Thierry Nueville  and established talents of Dani Sordo, Chris Atkinson and Juha Hanninen.  I’d love to see them challenge VW […]

Return of The Rising Sun?

Toyota’s TMG (Their German based racing division, also building the LMP1 car) has confirmed to be constructing a Yaris based WRC spec car for the 2014 season.  It will be used as an evaluating platform for a full factory effort in the short future.  They seem relatively certain of future rallying programs.  VW and Hyundai […]

Crowned #2

Vettel wasn’t the only recent champion.   Sebastien Ogier picked up his first WRC title.  Everyone knew he had the talent.  The surprise came in the form of the winning manufacturer.  Not often does any team in any series win outright in their first full season.  Volkswagen did just that.  The field is thinned out, […]

Black Pug.

Life after the WRC seems pretty good for Sebastien Loeb.  A rumoured WTCC program with Citroen, select rounds of the Porsche Super Cup now this.  A Pikes Peak attack.  Peageot, looking back to its Climb Dance days, will compete at Pikes Peak with their 208 T16.  Its more or less a rehashed 908.  The running […]

2013 Rally Mexico

So are we handing the title to Ogier already?  Jebus.  From one dominating Frenchman to another.    He leads heading into Day 2.  Fun Fact:  This is Ken Block’s only rally of the year.  He’s doing quite well.  For a guy that picked up rallying as a hobby late in his 30’s, to be even […]

Portraits of CIAS 2013

I’ve found the Autoshow to provide great photo opportunities.  Unfortunately, the background ruins a lot of the shots.  I’ve tried to go for up close photos to fix that.  Practice, practice, practice.  I honestly didn’t think I’d be uploading my own photos as much as I have lately.  More to come!!

One Legend To Another.

The man with legs the size of my torso talks about the man with the balls the size of watermelons.  Velodrome star Chris Hoy narrates the story of WRC legend Colin McRae.  “When in doubt, flatout”.

Ice Driving in 911 Rally Cars

Ice racing is now on my bucket list.   I’ll substitute the Porsche and Sweden my my Subie and Northern Ontario.  It will have to do.  The bit about studs is fascinating   I would watch he shit out of a show that just talks about different tires from different disciplines.

Shenanigans …..In Video.

Hey Farva…what’s the name of that restaurant you like with all the goofy shit?  Video shot and edited my Matt Morana.

Sweden Rally 2013 Day 1.

Change of the guards.  I think this is the rally the torch is passed from Sebastien to Sebastien.  You shouldn’t be able to lead the Swedish rally without 1.  A proven rally car 2. Scandinavian heritage.  Ogier is doing without either.  It’s rather impressive.
