    Thanks Nige. Rallying has got scenery, in contrast to F1 in general, even if rally cars are based on mundane shopping cars! All the teams and sponsors put these great pics out on their social media feeds, so always nice to see.

    Throwback Thursday - 19 years ago today, Sébastien Loeb & Daniel Elena started their first ever WRC event, the Catalunya Rally in a Saxo Kit Car.

    To date, they have started 171 WRC rallies, won 78 of them, and also won the WRC title 9 years consecutive from 2004 to 2012

    Wayback Wednesday. As the teams arrive in Argentina for this weekend's rally, we go back to the 1980 event, this was the first year Argentina ever held a WRC event.

    I love the coverage of the Argentinian Rally. They really are properly 'mad for it' when it comes to the rally.
    If a man speaks his mind in a forest and no woman hears him...is he still wrong ?

    I'm enjoying the Cumbrian Ogier fest and principally because annoying Neuville has his gas at a peep.

    If Seb Ogier doesn't win I would like to see a result for Kris Meeke or Latvala.

    Dan Barritt is back in the hot seat this weekend, alongside Elfyn, after suffering concussion from an accident during Rally Mexico, he has been given the all clear. Phil Mills has gone back to his retirement job, working for M-Sport!

    3 way title race methinks.
    Ogier, Neuville and Tanak.

    Read somewhere they should stick a set of Dmacks back on Evans car.

    He really is underperforming this year.

    Throwback Thursday, on the eve of this year's Rally of Portugal, we go back exactly 30 years to 1988, the debut of the Lancia Integrale, this car replaced the rather ordinary looking Delta HF 4x4, the rest is history, the car would dominate the World Rally Championship until Lancia withdrew at the end of 1992.
