2021 FIA World Rally Championship


Recommended Posts

Pretty incredible finish to the rally. Great to see the C3 delivering on gravel and both Meeke and Neuville with a decent result. Would be good to see the top of the table close up more, but I'm perhaps being a little demanding there: this season continues to deliver on the early promise, fingers crossed it stays this way!

I think he was pretty disorientated at that point.

I'm betting he got disoriented going through the light foliage.


You're probably right. And maybe he initially thought the car was done. That could have easily damaged the wheels or the suspension.

Anyway, the season looks promising. Ogier's in front as always, but we have 3 winners in 3 different cars after 3 rallies. And I somehow believe Citroen and Hyundai might have more potential to make further progress through the season than M-Sport. Not so sure about Toyota.

I'm pretty gutted, my livestream kept freezing and there was something starting on tv that I wanted to watch, so I stopped watching and followed it on twitter instead! Oh well, still ridiculous! I bet meeke was on a hell of an adrenaline rush, he tweeted a photo of a toilet roll after the stage!

He was bloody lucky, as was the cameraman and any spectators in the area. That person will be parking there car a little further away from the stage next time!
I'd love to hear the call between that owner and the insurance company.

"And where was the vehicle? ...an off road car park? I see. And do you have the registration number of the vehicle that hit you?"

At least he got plenty of coverage of the accident including air and onboard camera :D

Question: what would YOU do with that bumper?  Have it signed?  Ebay it?  
I'd Ebay it, then use the money to pay for the repair of the f**ked rear end of my car! 

I have rewatched the clip multiple times now and Meeke was so lucky, that could so easily have been a retirement there. Fair play to Citroen, the C3 may have some handling issues on other surfaces, but it seems to be a tough car. 

Three different winners, from three different manufacturers in the first three rounds. Tarmac next, I wonder who will perform best?
