Rain made life difficult for drivers at the recent Cust gravel sprint held by Canterbury’s Autosport Club. With the two long high speed straights with kinks, bravery would be required as you decided whether to hit the kinks at 140 km/h, 150 km/h or more still. Starting with a near 1km straight, the road would reward those with good drive off the line and good judgement under brakes..  Read more >>
 
We have finished another successful rally here in Finland, 8th overall and collecting another 4 world championship points – but it didn’t go without it’s challenges. Following our progression from Sardegna to Poland, here we wanted to step things up another notch and get closer to both the leaders and our team mates. Following recce, John and I were very confident in our pacenotes we had written, which combined with the best road conditions we have seen before meant it was going to be a fast rally..  Read more >>
 
Latvala dominated most of the four-day Neste Oil Rally Finland but a brake problem yesterday evening threw his win into doubt. However, he held off a determined charge from Volkswagen team-mate Sébastien Ogier to win by 3.6sec. Latvala, conscious of the lack of home success in a country where rallying is a national sport, said he was motivated to fend off Ogier by the support from his fans. He was embraced by father Jari after finishing the final Ruuhimäki special stage..  Read more >>

Scott Pedder has powered to a dominant victory at Scouts Rally SA, holding his archrival Brendan Reeves at arm’s length throughout the weekend. Reeves held on for second, despite losing a wheel during the final day, while Citroen’s Tony Sullens capitalised on other drivers mistakes to claim third. “A great weekend!” said Pedder. “The result was so much about the hard work done by the team to produce a perfect car, and some hard work between Dale (Moscatt, co-driver) and I on our pace notes.” .  Read more >>
 
Verizon IndyCar Series took a dramatic twist at the Mid-Ohio sports car course. Dixon’s Chip Ganassi crew pulled a canny reverse strategy to give him a shot at victory after starting last in the 22-car field.
In the end Dixon pulled out a comfortable buffer to beat polesitter Sebastien Bourdais (KVSH Racing) with James Hinchcliffe (Andretti Autosport) finishing third. Ganassi team managing director Mike Hull became the architect of a most unlikely win by pulling a masterstroke on a caution just short of midway through the 90-lap affair by avoiding a pit stop..

Well its that time again - time to saddle up and get back into rally mode and what better way with one of the most exhilarating and historic events, Rally Finland. After our first two events of the year being new to us, it is nice to return to a rally that we know well (haven done it 4 times previously) and on roads that I enjoy. Finland is quite a unique rally and is famous for its fast roads with many blind crests and jumps..  Read more >>
