I hope you’ve recovered from the lunacy that was Portugal, because we’re island hopping again, heading to Corsica’s neighbor Sardegna.
Currently recovering from a brutal rally week in Pennsylvania. Scores will be updated and preview post made later today.
Yeah, that’s right. There’s racing going on in Hell, Norway this weekend, with the fifth round of the 2018 FIA World Rallycross Championship. With the four worst rounds being deducted from your total score, you can still win our Fantasy Game overall by entering the rest of the rounds!
It’s already time for the fourth round of the FIA World Rallycross Championship. Welcome my son, welcome to the Speedmachine.
After just two weeks off the WRC has re-crossed the Atlantic and is back in Europe for the sixth round of the season. No Fafeing about here, it’s time for Rally Portugal.
It’s only the start of May, and we’re already heading towards the third event of the FIA World Rallycross season! This round takes place at Mettet in Belgium, a tricky track that usually catches out a title candidate. With EuroRX joining in, this is a great opportunity to kickstart your Fantasy WorldRX campaign too.
Round 5?! How are we already on to round 5 of the season?
Now that the FIA World Rallycross Championship season has started, we’re moving with good speed from one event to another. We’re staying at the Iberian peninsula for the next round, but moving to a different country: Portugal.
The Catalunya Region in Spain is yet to become independent, and their former president currently has to stay in Germany. Despite the chaos, we’ll start the season in Barcelona with WorldRX and EuroRX this weekend!
Here we go, round 4! Our first full tarmac event and part one of the “neighboring islands doubleheader” (look up Corsica and Sardegna on a map). We’ve got a lot of good contenders here, so let’s get to it.
It’s soon April, which means that the FIA World Rallycross Championship is about to start. There’s been a huge turnaround in the world of rallycross, so nothing is for certain this year.
A new “Americas Rallycross” is launching this season and taking some of the main teams from Red Bull Global Rallycross, which has been the top rallycross series in the U.S. since its first 2011 season. But, uh, about this new “Americas” series—the start of its season is in Britain.
It feels like the season just started yesterday, but we’re already on to our third event of the year, and this one’s going to be a tough one.
Colin’s Crest is one of the most delightful parts of Rally Sweden. Every year, the organizers have a mini competition on the Vargåsen stage as to who jumps the farthest over one particular crazy fast jump. Hyundai driver Thierry Neuville didn’t win the Colin’s Crest Award, but his jump was insane for other reasons.
Rally Sweden was a winter wonderland this year, but not for the drivers who went first. The first cars on a snowy stage inevitably act as snowplows for everyone behind them—and those later competitors then go faster on the clearer roads. One driver at Sweden had enough, so he arrived late to one stage, breaking the…
In 1969, Dutch broadcaster AVRO brought RallyCross to the Netherlands, inspired by the British, as well as the fact that stage rallying was becoming too expensive. Shorty after this, a new star was about to rise in this sport. Or actually two stars, one of flesh and blood, and the other of metal and rubber.
Rally is the fine art of blasting down narrow stage roads as fast as possible, and cars are usually spaced pretty far apart to allow that to happen. As such, the World Rally Championship can go years without anyone crashing in a pass, but it happened at Rally Sweden.
Those front wheels. The first time I saw the opening photo my thoughts drifted to a first-gen Oldsmobile Toronado engine and drivetrain stuffed into a smaller and lighter Dodge Aspen. After digging a little deeper I learned it’s far from that simple, and much more clever.
The 2018 WRC season is in full swing and this week we’re off to the land of the ice and snow from the midnight sun where the hot springs flow. It’s time for Rally Sweden.
Canada isn’t just for chuggling maple syrup on a snowmobile while pretending to be the God of Snow. It also hosts incredible rallies, including some utterly brutal snow rallies. The only thing missing is the present-day World Rally Championship cars, and fortunately, the Rally Promoter Association of Canada announced…
