Thumbs up Ramada Express Rally on SV

Wow !! That's all I can say! I think that has to be the best rally coverage I have ever seen on TV.. Sponsored by Mitsu and of course an Evo 6 won, but again, wow !!

There was an Impreza too but it didn't finish due to gearbox problems. (Dammit!)

Great coverage of all the classes and the super-stage at the end too! All sorts of neat cars, (love that Mustang...always a place in my heart!) and trucks and all filmed from some really close camera positions..!

That muddy stage about halfway through in the mountains looked like hell though! Talk about a mud bog in that one section!

Anyway, hope the show is repeated because I missed the first few minutes, and next time I'll for sure have the VCR ready!!

I think it will repeat about 3-4 hours after first showing.
Check the
Speedvision website for a listing of show times.

Yeah, caught the tail end of the rally. Pretty awesome. I haven't raced yet, but I'm planning on taking my WRX to the track this summer. It's painful thinking of putting my WRX through the abuse in the dirt. I may stay only on the track!
Anyone else feel that way about their cars?

How nice was that

A whole one hour coverage of USA Rallying ..

I think I just died and went to Heaven

Great to see the drivers "working" the Cameras especially raising money for a Kids charity and with the "head cam" thingie for ya "average Punter".

A very well organised rally designed for maximum TV exposure..

Many other rally organising teams could learn a huge amount from the team that organised that event with regards to the PR/Media side of things..

*Oh.. Hang on* I had NOTHING TO DO with organising it

Oh yeah and nice to see the SUVS doing SOOO well in Rally

Errm I'm being facetious on that last sentence.

That Impreza that was giving Rhys Millen a hard time was the Rally Knight Impreza driven by Lon Peterson. They were leading overall for a good portion of the first stage, but the gearbox crapped out 6 miles into the 2nd stage on Saturday.

All I have to say is, wait for Tennessee... Rally Knight has 2 new heavily modified 4EAT's that are full manual, and can take all the punishment that the engines can dish out.

My car is getting a CARB pending turbosystem from Rally Knight too.

Very cool. Good coverage. I don't know much about the USA rallying, but I hope more of this to come. Is there any of this in the east.

Question: Does anyone know if Lon Peterson will be driving that Scooby any more this season?

I have seen him drive in person before, and he is very good, so I'm pleased to see him in some nice equipment. I wonder if the tranny problems will be made to go away in future events...

Unfortunately, I don't get SV , so I missed what sounds like an excellent broadcast of US Rallying...

Lon will definitely be driving the car at Tennessee and at whatever other events he can make.

There is a rally school being held later this year that he's been asked to instruct at, as well as a skidpad school at the San Bernardino Sherrif's training facility that he'll be instructing at as well.

Yah, I saw it last night and it was a lot of fun to watch... my mom even showed interest! Huge suprise! Think I might have to get the "Mom and Dad" sponsorship sticker for my rally car... j/k Too bad I didn't know about it earlier otherwise I would have recorded it. Oh well...
