1995 Buick ROADMASTER Estate!
18 years after AWD took over the WRC Citroen brought out a pair of lightweight FWD Xsara kit cars and earned back to back tarmac rally wins in 1999, the last 2WD wins in the WRC
Isn’t someone here building one?
I found this the other day. Beautiful noise. Pace notes in all the languages.
Which part’s the chicane? THE WHOLE DAMN FIELD
Do people still get Gran Turismo references?
Available wherever rally parts are sold.
My rally has come along
My lonely days are over
And exhaust is like a song, oh yeah
525,600 minutes: according to RENT, that’s one way to measure a year. On the surface, that’s not actually that much. I mean, $525.6k couldn’t even buy you a Veyron. But 525000+ moments so dear, each one more fleeting than the last? It can change a life. As can drinking that many cups of coffee.
We like to associate rally with the phrase “flat out,” because rally legend Colin McRae wouldn’t have it any other way.

Now I’m leaning away from the luxury, and trying to turn it into an absolute rocket, both on-road and off. This is my overlanding vehicle as well, so anything that can get me through…
Some say that the WRC is boring, without any profiles, that the drivers aren’t as good as in the old days and so on. That might to some extent be true, but there are some proof that we are entering another golden age. Let’s look at the age of the current WRC-drivers compared with the age of WRC-Champions when they won…
I’m starting to think about what calendar to get for my desk next year. Does anyone know of rally-themed print calendars? US and/or vintage rally would be awesome but current WRC would also be cool. Just feeling out the options. Whatcha got?
Alright, going to get some wheels for the Rally Capri project tomorrow night.
