    Extremely impressive lineup for Rally Legend and a Colin McRae tribute.



    Might actually be the best group of drivers ever assembled for an event of this kind.

    In fact, all living world champions besides Sainz will be there. Waldegard, McRae and Burns obviously missing.

    Tempted to head back this year now. Really enjoyed last year. Only living world champion autographs I am missing are Rohrl, Sainz and Auriol.

    I honestly do not understand how they can go so slow. By any European standards our roads here are HUUUUGE. Wide and fast...Part comes from our trees are much much bigger so the trucks used to carry the tress out are BIG.
    Here is typical truck where I live:


    If you have a truck that big and especially that long, all the turns and curves and junctions must be gentle enough for that truck to go around... There have often been stages where 4-6 guys will have average speed over 130km/hr...these guys averaging that..
    I remember on stage in Canada where we were absolute flat out in top gear for about 4 minutes and so flat and straight all I did was watch oil temp and prussure and swear non-stop (about 175 km/hr in my poor old V4 Saab)
    Few understand where "we" (North American guys cuase Canada in included) stand..They bullsh!t themselves into thinking--and saying "we've made it , we're finally "up there' with the best Europeans".. OK Americans tend to be extremely ignorant about anything in the rest of the world including rally but this goes way past ignorance.

    We don't have the discipline or desire to improve as long as we can brag without getting challenged and make You-tube videos. Numbers, which are real things, are dismissed as "that's just your opinion"..

    You can see how we elected this Drumph-thing.

    Mexico and Argentina somehow have the ability to organise and have WRC events but with 22-24 cars is that really worthy of calling those a "WORLD" Championship event---or a rally even?

    We could gather maybe 2 homologated cars..

    And the long term 20 year trend has been in the same wrong direction...More video "reality TV" direction. On a foundation of guys you see in these videos..unbelievably slow and amateurish..

    The average quality of dring and even average speeds has not seriously changed since we had WRC in 1986 to 1988

    Given the problems on Rally Argentina, it's interesting to see that the job for Timing and Tracking is back up for grabs...

    I'm not a technical person, but it seems quite complicated.....
