Hyundai is currently doing the final pre-homologation tests on their brand new R5-spec car, a 180,000€ all-terrain rocket ship designed to be 90% as fast as a full WRC car at 40% of the price. Now they just need a livery, and they’re turning to the fans for help.
Before this season of the WRC, Mads Østberg suddenly found himself without a codriver after longtime partner Jonas Andersson left to drive with Pontus Tidemand. Speculations started and a lot of names were dropped into the mix, but Østberg didn’t look further than to his WRC rival Andreas Mikkelsen.
Who’s playing and what do you think? I’m excited about the idea of this game, since I feel I haven’t had a decent rally game since, well, the gran turismo 4 rally stages. I have yet to purchase, since I have no one in physical reach to talk with about racing games anymore.
Also, anyone playing trackmania turbo? I’m…
Welcome to Rally Flashback, where we look at previous versions of the upcoming round of the WRC. This weekend Rally Argentina is the challenge for our drivers, a rally which has been visited since 1979. To gain knowledge about Argentina, we look back to 2002!
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.
Heads up guys if you wanted to join in for the Detroit SCCA RallyX it’s almost maxed out and we’re not even in April.
Posted by Grassroots Motorsports, this is pretty fantastic work.
Well OPPO’s, I got the email last night, I’m going Racing!
A bit more than a year ago, I bought a BMW E36 compact so that I could finally get into racing a bit more seriously. Here’s a summary of how, probably, a typical first year in racing looks like for everyone. Also, there’s a small list of tips at the end for those who wish to get into racing themselves.
The last time I posted the lil red GTX had just fizzled out after getting clobbered on the rough stages of the 2015 Lake Superior Performance Rally. We had felt pretty good about the new turbo and the set up in general but then at the very end of stage 12, the car turned off, and that was that. We coasted through the…
When you’ve spent five hours weeding through 125+ rally links for the sake of “by the people, for the people!”
My brain hurts.
It doesn’t make a lot of sense that the very pinnacle of driving would be a box-on-wheels old Volvo on a patch of dirt and ice in rural New Hampshire. But I don’t need life to make sense.
Welcome to Rally Flashback, where we look back to a previous version of the upcoming round of the WRC. Mexico is one of the newest events on the calendar, and that means we can’t go as far back as we would like to. Bear with me though, as this is one of the most difficult and different events of the calendar, and the…
Sandblast Rally up in Cheraw, SC starts March 4th! If you’re interested in seeing the schedule, then here it is. Toyota will be debuting their Rally Rav4 racing program piloted by Ryan Millen, son of Rod Millen and brother of Rhys Millen. I’m heading up there late Friday evening as a Saturday volunteer with a Miata…
