This past Saturday was the big day. I took the RallyMetro out for its first event with Stateline Rallycross. Before I get into how things went, a brief recap of how the RallyMetro came to be. The car has 266k miles on it, lots of rust .. LOTS of rust, and (unbelievably) working air conditioning. I purchased this…
Much like Formula 1 getting their year started with testing at Barcelona, World Rallycross has started their year using part of the same circuit. Lucky for us the World Rallycross YouTube channel has posted highlights from both Q1 and Q2 sessions today, some surprises and unexpected turns kicked off the start to the…
Are some I really look forward to see racing each other.
Most likely the coolest guy in motorsport ever.
Is anyone on Oppo attending or competing? I was told to class myself as prepared front. Originally I was going to do Lime Rock’s Winter Auto X this weekend but do to the nice weather it is postponed. I look forward to having fun and possibly being competitive.

Last weekend I visited the World Rallycross round in Höljes, Sweden. I did a guide for what to expect here last year, so I’ll only show a couple of videos and a bunch of photos now.
That is the only way I can describe the idea of taking my 1994 Buick Roadmaster Estate to a rallycross event.

It was round four of the FIA World Rallycross Championship at Lydden Hill (That’s in Great Britain).
Is the Monaco GP turning into a parade? Do you want more overtaking? Have an extra screen? WorldRX is live on Youtube right now from Lydden Hill. Petter Solberg and Mattias Ekström look unbeatable, while Ken Block and Sebastien Loeb fight for a spot in the semifinals.
..Martin Schanche and his Ford RS200. I’m done with my only exam this semester, which was a lot easier than expected.
