    Fair point....never want to post stupidly. My initial thread was soliciting information, and this one was more of a....Here's what I have gathered....am I understanding the sport the right way? type of thing.

    Glad you discovered the sport though! The US is desperately missing a solid WRC fanbase, and it's good to see manufacturer involvement directly impact that as well. We're in for a great season this year for sure, so you've joined at the right time!
    Compared to what NASCAR "fans" say about the sport they supposedly love, this place is absolute sunshine and butterflies so far.

    Thank you for your appreciation of my interest in this sport. I am very excited!

It evokes a deep respect and admiration for the level of commitment it takes to drive like that. Few can do it and you know it's special when you see it. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KvsXUDnWYH8
    Absolutely love the fan's reaction. Just awesome.

    Just have a look at the F1 section of this forum and you'll understand.

    The only negative threads in the rally section in recent times have been the Toyota thread, because everyone just wants them to do really well, and the media coverage threads.
    Never stop dreaming because one day it might happen.

    Revman, if you haven't checked it out already, take a look at arguably the best sounding rally car of the '90s (alongside its sister-car the Xsara), the Peugeot 306 Maxi!

    His brawling style earned him a reputation as the meanest man in boxing. He is said to have knocked out a woman ... and a horse ... EACH, with one punch.

    Probably because all makes and drivers are respected by rally fans. At the end, all are important to make rally heritage greater.

    Btw, fantastic video by Praemio from the first special built rally car, 10 years before Gr.B, and still the most iconic ever: the Lancia Stratos. Interesting to notice that the man telling the story, and rallying them on historic events, is ex F1 driver Erik Comas.
