He had just purchased a rally car, an ex-Duplessis 1990 Mk2 VW Golf GTI with a Mk3 GTI engine, so after some discussion…
Yep, that’s still a turbo 1.4l. AND yep - Someone just drove the crap out of it!

From a Norwegian sprint rally this weekend. Some Volvos were hurt in the making of this video.
This past Saturday my girlfriend Nichole, my dog Ellie and I participated in the local Alfa Romeo club’s spring rally. Organized by my friend Dean, it promised to be a 136 mile drive of great roads and cars. Here’s Dean’s GTV:
Yep, DiRT 3! And it is so very fun. Very, very fun.
It’s been quite some time (like, 2 weeks?) since I’ve share any of my pictures. Today we open with two rally cars!
Have a time lapse of the Stobart Focus WRC getting built.
