    They're a business, not a charity.

    Rally cars cost money to build and run - who knew?

    If the 'talent' hasn't got the money to run, the car stays at Dovenby Hall. It's not like the guy with €1...

    Two reasons that I can see.

    First, every year, the last round of JWRC / DDFT / WRC Academy / whatever it's called has less participants in the last round than the first. In some cases,...

    I'm not sure we can learn anything about Kalle from this weekend, other than he seemed to happily sacrifice his own rally for the benefit of the team. As relatively weak as his pace was, how much of...

    That's one hell of a conclusion to jump to, considering the fastest Fiesta has lost nearly double the time of the fastest Hyundai to the rally leader. Are you watching the same rally as the rest of...

    That's easier to achieve on a simple, tarmac route (like Rally Legend) or a non-competitive tarmac event (like the Eifel Festival).

    If the reason he is testing the 2022 car is because he has a contract until the end of the year... does 2021 end on the 18th of November?
