WRC just posted the onboard video of Kris Meeke’s wild ride through the parking lot. It looks even crazier than the aerial shots.
There’ve been many great rivalries over the years: Hunt vs. Lauda; Corvette vs. 911; Spy vs. Spy; Jalop writers vs. readers. As competition causes stakes, tempers, and performances to rise, so the conflict becomes set into memory.
We like to associate rally with the phrase “flat out,” because rally legend Colin McRae wouldn’t have it any other way. What you may not know is that rally has a long history of imposing speed limits for stages—and it’s a rarely-imposed recommendation that canceled one stage of last weekend’s Rally Sweden.
Let’s celebrate with some classic shots from earlier editions of this winter rally!
Dusty is out on the road, and has lended the responsibility of this Fantasy WRC preview to the local
expert village idiot.
In short: is it worth paying for? If I can have on-demand access to the onboards, special stages, live stages, highlights, etc. it’ll probably be what I need.
One of the major talking points at the rally and rallycross scene this winter has been Volkswagens hasty departure from the World Rally Championship. Another huge question has been the new rallycross car of triple FIA World Champion Petter Solberg, as he has announced that last season was his last with the Citroën…

Let’s look at the age of the current WRC-drivers compared with the age of WRC-Champions when they won…
You guys ever heard of this Spanish bloke named Carlos Sainz?
But all it left me was wanting. And it’s not the game I want. I want the BGM, and a 2-liter WRC class. And a 2.4-liter WRC class. And an actual Jaguar F-type GT3 so that Emil Frey can be a big deal again.
Welcome to Rally Flashback, where we look back to a previous version of the upcoming round of the World Rally Championship. This year we already know that Sebastien Ogier is the 2016 WRC champion, but before Wales in 2001 the story was quite different.
...apparently reads my stuff. Awwwww yesssss.
I went to the 50th Mecsek Rally in Hungary to witness the golden anniversary of one of the country’s biggest domestic motorport events. It was short but went with a bang. A literal one.
..because it seems like WRC drivers Andreas Mikkelsen and Henning Solberg, as well as World Rallycross driver Andreas Bakkerud had a good time yesterday.
