Give me a break. Titles are hard.
Welcome to the second round of Fantasy WorldRX, where we head to Portugal and Montalegre. Situated in the mountains of the northern part of the country this track can exhibit both proper sunshine and summer as well as torrential rain and nasty slippery conditions. Who will score the most points here?
My rally has come along
My lonely days are over
And exhaust is like a song, oh yeah
World Rally Championship fan Jiří Tureček happened to be in the right place at the right time after Toyota driver Juho Hänninen hit a bridge near the end of Stage 1 of this weekend’s Tour de Corse. The hard hit caused fuel to leak out, which sparked a weirdly mesmerizing fire when viewed in slow motion.
Whoever set up the start of the 2017 WRC season certainly was in the mood to mix it up, as the all-tarmac Tour de Corse is our fourth different surface type in as many events. And boy is it a doozy.
First race of the Canadian Rally Championship and American Rally Association Championship! Pastrana, Higgins, Drew, L’Estage, and Kihurani!
Welcome to the first round of Fantasy WorldRX - The game where we try to predict how things will turn out in the manic, unpredictable FIA World Rallycross Championship. The first round features both WorldRX and EuroRX, so there is plenty to chose from!
The Focus RS RX has driven by Ken Block and Andreas Bakkerud must be built to handle all kinds of abuse: jumps, dirt, getting hit on all sides during World Rallycross competition, and of course, Gymkhana videos. Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at how they made the car stronger, faster and more ridiculous.
Heaven is a place where a rally is won overall by a thoroughly ridiculous Mitsubishi Mirage. Marvel at these scenes from Rally America’s Rally In The 100 Acre Wood, where a monster Mirage R5 and a relatively normal looking Toyota RAV4 blast down the same stage roads. Everything is better as a rally car: fact.
Another year, another season of the FIA World Rallycross Championship! The driver lineup this year has been described as the best in the series’ history, and the season starts earlier than ever!
Today’s inspiration: a Volvo 242 running last year’s Salpausselkä Ralli in Finland that refuses to crash, no matter the odds, no matter its mistakes.
World Rally Championship driver Kris Meeke said he “got caught out by a bump” less than a kilometer away from the end of the final stage of Rally Mexico. I’d say that’s an understatement. Meeke went flying off into a parking lot next to the stage road and unbelievably still won the rally.
If you thought you had a miserable time in traffic this morning, you’ve got nothing on the World Rally Championship.
It’s that time of year, folks! We’re done with the snow, the ice, and the cold and are finally headed to Mexico for spring break!
We like to associate rally with the phrase “flat out,” because rally legend Colin McRae wouldn’t have it any other way. What you may not know is that rally has a long history of imposing speed limits for stages—and it’s a rarely-imposed recommendation that canceled one stage of last weekend’s Rally Sweden.
Nissan used to have cars with goofy names like Fairlady, Bluebird, Stanza and Violet, but they could all whoop your ass if they wanted to.
World Rally Championship driver Mads Østberg lost a wing on his Ford Fiesta during Rally Sweden at speeds of nearly 124 mph. The sudden loss of downforce was a butt-puckering moment for sure, and made the car a handful to drive. Fortunately, fans found the wing and delivered it back to Østberg’s team.
Every year, the World Rally Championship’s trip to Sweden is a real treat. This year, it’s back to its usual Hoth-like form, covered in glorious snow and ice that allows the cars’ studded tires to reach ludicrous speeds on the stages. Let’s gaze in awe at the jumps from this year’s Rally Sweden—including the mega-jump…
