Have a Nice Day? Yeah.... So WRC is pretty mental......

These guys are nuts!!! They just showed highlights of the Monte Carlo Rally on Speedvision (east coast, so west coast guys you can still catch it I think). I want to talk all about it, but I don't want to give anything away. If they broght me along on one of he stages, I think that I'd pee myself, scratch that, I'd definatly pee myself. Best job in the world goes to........the guys that drive top of the line rally cars as hard as they can on great roads and get paid to do it. That's my vote.

p.s. I'm kinda new to this, excuse my schoolgirlish enthusiasm.

hehe, nothing to be ashamed of. Ive been a HUDGE fan of rallying for the last 4 years, and an average rally follower for about 8 since i was back in grade school, and didnt really knwo what it was. And even still when i see rally cars, i get all giddish, and happy. Its SO fun. Its like drifting, no matter how many times you do it, its always fun, and always envokes an ear to ear smile.

Anyway, with that said...yeah, its absolutly amazing. I mean the look on Sainz and Makinens faces...or rather lack there of. I mean they like didnt blink for over a minute...thats crazy. Or like Amen Schwarz in the Skoda...and his co-driver giving pace nots with a wimpering voice with his head barried int he pace notes too affraid to look out the window!! Man, i love rallying...i can only dream of being at that level some day. In the mean time...wheres me beater?!

Just got done taping it, will watch it again tomorrow nite on a 12foot screen w/ some buddies.
These guys have the biggest kiwi's of any racing drivers-period. Make the wrong mistake in the wrong place- lights out.
The subee's were running pretty strong early, but then crashing and mechanical probs took them out. Hopefully the WRX will get on track and have a good season.
When can we expect a FIA WRC race show up in the USA??
ps-- my wrx will turn 1000miles tomorrow- let the one man rally race commence

I gotta say, that Skoda driver is awesome. The best I've seen so far with drifting slickness. Did you check out those cliffs??? Damn!, one false move over the edge, and you'll have a long ride down. I want a WRC sticker! That's a cool logo!

best footage from last seasons WRC was when Burns clipped a cows head in the African Rally. Video footage of the cars bumper traveling around 70-80mph just smacking this poor cow that was trying to run across the road. Neither driver said a word about it.
REal Cool.
