ya Petter was prolly already hearing his boss asking, now what did you hit?

CM was pretty luckly those ppl cleared out quick when his front wheels went all weird

That ditch was one of them times when you just tighten up and say oohhhhh $$$$$hhiitt

I like how the cars are set-up here, all nice and high for total bullet proof smashing fun. The next race in Finland will also be epic. Nothins better on TV!

Its on again in a little while

That sucked when that dude hit that massive ditch because he was exhausted and not paying attention. That poor old navigator looked like he was in a world of pain.

Cool rally over all though, I like how it had rained and made it muddy.

I stand corrected, the ppl are much luckier

my kid even knew what Petter said Keep it up it gives all those stodgy rally racers a bit of a personality.

I'm liking Petter Solberg more and more. He's a great driver, but he doesn't take himself too seriously. I get the feeling that his codriver doesn't really like him though, especially after he suggested that he go sit on the trunk

My favorite was the part where the Skoda driver, I think it was Armin Schwartz, nosed into that ditch at like 100 mph. The commentary was great, especially the part where the commentator translated for the navigator who told Schwartz to slow down twice then, after the impact said:"you are a very stupid man". Ouch.

I thought Burns was about to cry when he was interviewed after his Sube went out. Too bad b/c he has done well in the Safari Rally in the past. I hope for Subaru's sake, he can pull of another victory or two before the year is out.

One of my favorite shot was actually of the old Celica All-trac. Where it sunk into all the mud and was almost completely submerged. Oh that is what the snorkle is for.
I'm glad for Skoda too. How long have they been doing WRC? They finally got on the podium. Their team manager was just about in tears.

I thought it was a great race, although they should have not gone w/out 'copter coverage.

Those ruts/rocks/ditches were insane... I am surprised Makkinen made it without any major failures.

Luck? Or a good driver?

That was an intense rally!!

Burns did look totally heart-broken, and I can't say I blame him.

Petter rocks!

What up with the Subies breaking though?

At least McRae's Ford went out too.

I think it was crazy when they went without the helicopters on that one stage. Luckily no one got hurt, it was bad judgement. Too many animals and stray traffic in Africa to risk it.

Totally awesome rally though, that's the way it should be. Lot's of mud, huge ruts and holes, and 200kmh straights. YEEE-HAWWW!

edit: Oh ya, and I WANT A SNORKEL!!! Kick ass!

Makkinen won because he is a good driver AND had lots of luck. There were quite a few great drivers knoked out by equipment failure.

I also liked the video clips of Colin out on his boat water skiing and jet skiing. "It helps with the job." I WANT THAT JOB!! Actually, if I got to travel all around and play in the water I think it would help with my concentration at my job too!

And I still want a snorkel!!!! You never know when you might need to drive through a meter of water!!
