  1. Timmy Hansen (unsurprisingly) confirmed in a second Hansen car today. Slowly starting to see the numbers rise for WRX this year, lets hope there is enough to give us a decent season. Another trip to Lydden at the end of last month, this time for the first two rounds of the 5 Nations British Championship. Not the biggest entry in Supercar, but a very tight field at a couple of great finals, plus some really good racing in a lot of the other classes. Few snaps... ...with more pictures here if you are bored!
  2. I have my fingers crossed that both the final non-hybrid and hybrid WRCars make it into the CM WRC game.
  3. Kevin Abbring confirmed a full season today in a FORS run GCK Megane. Lets hope he likes sitting on the back of recovery trucks...
  4. Can't believe Dirt 3 was 10 years ago either! Was fortunate enough to have my first play of it at the game launch at Battersea. Unfortunately I had to do it sitting beside Neil Cole, so I was heavily distracted by the urge to throw the controller at him.
  5. Real shame to see Hell gone, that and Holjes are two of my absolute favourites, plus I was really hoping that the date for Spa would move so it wouldn't clash with RallyLegend. While we are waiting for World Rallycross news few snaps from the first round of the BTRDA Rallycross Championship at Lydden a few weeks ago: First British Championship round at Lydden at the end of the month. Hoping for decent entry numbers there, especially in the Supercar class, so it should be a good weekend.
  6. Revised 2021 calendar now up: https://www.fiaworldrallycross.com/article/10759/montalegre-returns-on-revised-calendar No Norway, season now ends in Portugal.
  7. I think everyone agrees that the best 2018 Supercar is the Megane, then I would say the Audi S1 (which I much prefer driving). Best 2019 Supercar is harder to pick. 208 is probably the best all rounder, MINI and Ibiza are also fast as well. S1 is my most used car in the 2019 class as well though!
  8. Forgive the double post but...
  9. It wasn't even close to period specification when he brought it. The origin of that chassis is hazy, it seems likely that it is one of the Glomma Papp rallycross cars, but that isn't certain. The car was built up to Evo specification and ran a couple of different gearboxes (and colour schemes) before going up for sale in 2014. Apparently the engine in it at that time was a Schanche built 2.3L, but I haven't seen that verified, nor am I certain that is the engine in it now (it is listed as 2.1L, but the seller may not be aware). Block changed wheels and suspension dampers on it; s
  10. Genuine tub, but not a factory assembled car and not an original "Evo" specification car as claimed in some videos. According to the site listing it has now sold (for $550K) @F2CMaDMaXX, which means that Block sold it for fives more than he paid for it.
  11. Still not quite sure why he has sold everything: just the EsCos (and maybe the Hoonitruck) left now.
  12. I hope not, but that mule definitely looks longer. That said, I understand that the 2022 cars will all be based on an FiA designed structure, with panels clad on top. With that in mind perhaps they will just be using modified Fiesta panels for next year.
  13. Yeah, I believe it is a Vermont built car being run by Hoonigan Racing.
  14. Croatia was pretty damn entertaining! I'll leave debating the incident on Sunday morning, but a fantastic recovery from Ogier. He seems to manage situations that would fluster others so well. Still turning out these sorts of drives this far into his career continually makes me question who the greatest Seb is. Gutted for Evans but, sorry to say it, I think the best man won. Very impressed by Fourmaux as well. Not the first time he has driven the car, but the first time at this level and I thought he delivered a good result.
  15. 2nd in Olympus (behind Pastrana) last weekend. Not a bad debut in the car, but aided by the retirement of Semenuk and absence of McKenna.
  16. Was hard to tell: drivers seemed to be moving between the buggies throughout the day!
  17. Very quick in the right hands. I wasn't too sure about it in the morning, as a lot of the drivers were either press or non-rallycross (Matt Neal was one of the first out on track). Most of them were only getting three or four laps in the car, so they were (understandably) pretty tentative initially and only really got decent speed on the last lap. Manfred Stohl took the car out before lunchtime and that is when it got a lot more interesting to watch. I had the impression (from both Projekt E TV coverage and the morning viewing) that car was a bit stiff to drive. Stohl was obviously
  18. Few photos from the test at Lydden last week: Plus a glimpse of the future (maybe)... More pictures here, if you are bored!
  19. I am honestly not sure what the latest version of the plan is! WRC Promoter have a lot to sort and I suspect that item might be a bit further down the agenda... ...5 Nations have opened the Supercar car up to electric cars this year. Natalie Barrett and Chris Hoy are both looking to run electric cars for the full season (if they can get the budget). Personally think that a mixed top class is - and always should have been the way - to introduce electric. Fans can get used to it and, as the cars get quicker, the top teams will naturally adopt the fastest car and switch over. Liam (Dor
  20. Enzo Ide confirms a full season in WRX... https://www.jcraceteknik.com/en/nyhet/Enzo-Ide-embarks-on-full-2021-World-Rallycross-Championship-with-EKS-JC ...so at least there will be one car on the grid! There was a media day held at Lydden last week for the forthcoming 5 Nations Championship (and also a bit of pre-season testing). Mixture of old and new cars plus *awaits drama* the STARD Fiesta ERX. The Fiesta was out throughout the day with various BTCC and rallycross drivers giving it a go. I still can't see an electric car having the same emotional impact as a petrol car
  21. I want it to be decent, as the current specification WRCars deserve a great game!
  22. No worries @UP100, I did a double take when I read the post: might suggest that I have spent too much time here when I recognised the wording of a post from almost seven years ago...
  23. I could be proven wrong, but I think the Skoda outing was more of a convenience rather than the sign of a new partnership.
  24. The WRC Fiesta that isn't actually a WRC Fiesta. (Is a cool car though) I think they have been left very open to try and encourage entries. If the surge in R5 entries is the start of something in ARA, then I wonder if they will refine the rules more (or rather align them closer with FiA regulations).
