Farewell today to a true legend


Take Two WRC Australia!!!!

Welcome back Shiroi Usagi (>_<)

I have been spending a lot of time attending various events around the country of late. Normally this would be a good thing but lately it has been accompanied by an emo fat fest when I get home and I simply can’t be bothered to upload my pics. Time passes then it all seems a bit too old to upload.

I almost reached that point once again with this year’s round of WRC Australia which was held at Coffs Harbour, New South Wales 2 weekends ago. It is no secret that I am a massive rally fan so for me, this was probably the pinnacle motorsport event of the year. Sure it was dusty, poorly run and really of annoying getting stabbed in the butt by hidden stumps (awkward), but nothing beats the sound of a World Rally Car screaming though the forest at unbelievable speeds. Add to that crazy Nakamura approved angles, rocks and tress and it is a recipe for awesomeness.

Want a pic of your favourite WRC car??? Let me know

Hyundai yet to comment on WRC rumours

Hyundai has made no official comment on a possible rumored return to the World Rally Championship.

The company withdrew from WRC activity in 2003.

The German Auto Motor und Sport magazine has posted a report on its website suggesting that the Korean manufacturer has almost completed a racing version of its i20 at its European base at Offenbach in Germany, with orders placed with suppliers for motorsport components. The website suggests that this could then lead to a rally programme like Volkswagen’s.

The image is a mock-up from the Auto Motor and Sport website, showing an i20 with a WRC numberplate.
