Post Subaru at Corsica

I can't believe there are only four races left. It sounds like this could be the hardest one for Burns...lets hope not.
Solberg in a Subie sounds good to me.

From Rally News on the race:

Subaru is an unknown factor. Much will depend on Pirelli's efforts to make up ground on Michelin, but Richard Burns is the only likely winner, as team-mates Simon Jean-Joseph and Petter Solberg (the latter expected to drive a re-prepared test car) have little experience of Corsica. Burns is hoping for a wet rally after leading in Catalonia in the rain.

"There are little steps forward since Spain. We haven't had any reliability problems on tarmac at all, which I hope continues. I've got to expect to have to fight for it, because it's not like there are just two of us in with a shout of winning the World Championship. There are four people and every one of those people is very, very hungry. I expect to have to fight tooth and nail and I expect the team to have to do the same," Burns said.


GO Mr. Burns GOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!

yeh, i think for the next 2 tarmac rounds its a damage limitation exercise. Pirelli always perform poorly on dry tarmac and corsica is all about tyres.

As long as richard gets through the next 2 events in 3rd or above i believe he can still win the championship, but its going to be real tough. Colin is looking really strong right now and the focus is a great tarmac car and has the best tarmac tyres.

fingers crossed.

Good to see Petter on the team. Wasn't he a maniac in a Peugot before? Love that guy.
But nobody tops Mr. Burns...

No way, I'm co-driving for Subie Gal, we are going to be an all-girl team. I am actually getting my first co-driving instruction this December.
Thanks for the reminder, Mel. I remember footage of him flipping that sucker over some trees.

All out FIGHT!!!!
No worries we'll buy and Outback and we can all race together. Get the engine up to 300HP and a ton of torque and away we go. We will have lots of room in the back for tools, tires, beer/ale, sandwiches, etc. The only problem now is which one of us does SG listen to. Aw we'll sort it out.

This is sounding better by the minute. Road trip, Rally, Beer and 2 subie/rally mad beautiful women. Sounds like bliss to me.

I'll supply the 300BHP engine, i have 2 already. Subie Gal can supply the car liveried out in its usual style. Subi Chick can supply the maps and do the co-driving. Hmmm, Mel that leaves the beer, bring 10 crates, its gonna be a long trip!

food, who needs food!!

Ok I am on the beer. I will also go ahead and design a cooler for the roof.
However, I may need some chips (not the hot ones) from time to time.

Man, this is gonna be so cool.

Didn't take us long to lose our driver and co-driver...
Anyway, it looks as though we could have a whole team of mechanics and support if more people get on board. Rosss you're head of all that. Which means you get way more beer than anyone else on your squad.

Thursday 28th September
Extract from Official FIA Press Release http://www.fia.com


The FIA World Rally Championship moves from one Mediterranean island to another! From the twisty gravel roads of Cyprus the battle has now moved to the twisty asphalt roads of Corsica and a completely fresh challenge for the leading crews. Tipping a winner here is
notoriously difficult, but the rally will doubtless be a crucial point in the series. With just three rounds to go after this event, Corsica will determine which teams and drivers are seriously in the hunt for the Championship. Based at Ajaccio, the rally faces a unique combination of tortuous mountain roads and unpredictable weather
that can bring tyre choice into the equation as much as it does in Monte Carlo and Catalunya.

Ford (79 points)
Ford Martini comes to Corsica on the back of its dominant win in Cyprus but the two Mediterranean island events could hardly be
more different. Nevertheless both Colin McRae and Carlos Sainz remain confident that they can score well in their quest for both
the drivers' and manufacturers' World Championship titles. Ford can also draw confidence from a 1-3 result in Catalunya but, as Sainz points out, “That was a long time ago and Corsica has a very different
character.” McRae believes that the positions in the title race will be clearer after the two asphalt events, here in Corsica and then in San Remo. “Both are classic asphalt events that may not suit [series leader] Marcus Gronholm who has relatively little experience of them.
It's a good opportunity for all of us to score points.” A third Martini Ford Focus is entered for Italian ace Piero Liatti, drafted
in to bring extra asphalt firepower for Corsica and San Remo but not registered for manufacturers' points. Liatti's car is being used as a test bed for the electronic joystick gearchange that may appear
on Ford's main cars in San Remo.

Subaru (64 points)
Subaru arrives in Corsica with a very different driver line-up to the one normally seen. While Richard Burns continues to lead the team Juha Kankkunen is replaced (for Corsica and San Remo) by Martinique driver Simon Jean-Joseph. A third works prepared - but privately entered - Subaru is also competing here, driven by Norway's
Petter Solberg who has recently joined Subaru from Ford. Of the trio, only Burns and Jean-Joseph are registered for FIA World Championship points in the manufacturers' competition while Corsica marks Solberg's
first ever drive in a Subaru apart from a familiarisation test 10 days ago in England. Subaru's fourth driver for 2001, Estonian Markko Martin, is also on the island. He is not competing on the rally but made the recce for future experience.


Stage Itinerary
Leg 1, Friday 29th September
SS 1 09:08 Vero-Pont d'Azzana 18.22km
SS 2 09:56 Lopigna-Sarrola 29.96km
SS 3 12:04 Bellevalle-Pietra Rossa 20.84km
SS 4 12:49 Filitosa-Bicchisano 22.47km
SS 5 15:02 Cuttoli-Peri 17.34km
SS 6 15:40 Gare de Carbuccia-Tavera 20.04km
Total Leg 1 Competitive 128.87km

LETS GO BOYS!!!!
