Toyota Yaris GR - why it should be applauded

Toyota have just given a shot of hope to all fans of exciting, driver orientated ‘family’ cars. Their accounts department gave the go ahead for the Yaris GR which is to be applauded even more for what it represents than for how it drives. It is easy to wax lyrical on how this is a wonderful car, how it sets new parameters for performance, on how it is the greatest hot hatch of 2020 (probably 2021 and possibly 2022 too) BUT it is far, far more important than that. It has been produced by a…

Still here, still in lockdown, still home-schooling...

We're balancing everything COVID-19 again, we had planned expansion and improvement and now we're back in lockdown and homeschooling so perhaps we'll get our plans back in order for later in 2021... Here's an awesome picture of Red Bull Off-Road Junior Team member Seth Quintero during testing in Dubai, UAE on November 26, 2020. We'd love to bring daily reports of the Dakar but will be settling for all encompassing weekly reviews, same with WRC and GT3. We'll not be doing any driving reviews…

2020 Swecon World RX of Sweden (Round 1)

After a year away Johan Kristoffersson returned to FIA World RX with two heat wins, a semi-final win and (most importantly) a final win. He, along with his Polo R rallycross car, was the class of Saturday's racing winning in drying, dry and (come final time) very wet conditions. Kristoffersson added to his two previous victories at the Holjes Motorstadion with a measured performance that showed composure and blinding speed in equal measure. Mattias Ekström hadn't expected to be racing this…

Total 24 Hours of Spa victory for ROWE Racing Porsche

After a dramatic and tense 24 hours of racing at Spa (Belgium) Porsche team Rowe Racing car number 98 (Nick Tandy, Earl Bamber and Laurens Vanthoor) claimed overall victory. Nick Tandy nursed the car home over the last few laps with a suspected gearbox oil leak. Ironically, the leaking oil (combined with the very wet conditions) hindered the second placed Audi Sport Team Attempto of Frederic Vervisch, Patric Niederhauser and Mattia Drudi forcing them to settle for the runners up spot. Third…

2020 Swecon World RX of Sweden (Round 2)

In a brilliant example as to why rallycross is one of the most exciting forms of motorsport in the world Swede, Mattias Ekström, clinched a dramatic and highly impressive win in the second round of the 2020 FIA World Rallycross Championship. Driving his KYB Team JC Audi S1 with 100% commitment Ekström was able to beat Johan Kristoffersson's VW Polo R (winner of yesterday's first round) by a mere tenth of a second. Ekström and Kristoffersson were the class of the field (once again) and…

Pojekt E 2020 Swecon World RX of Sweden

Ken Block goes down in history as the first winner of a Projekt E rallycross round. The American had very little seat time before the event but was able to use his multitude of driving experience to extract the best performance from his Ford Fiesta ERX (built by STARD Austria). Natalie Barratt made a successful return to top level motorsport by taking 2nd in the final. Car woes dropped Austrian rally champion Hermann Neubauer out of contention and down to third in the first Projekt E…

Auction Attractions!

Time to gaze at some of the attractions passing through online auctions on this damp and cold Monday. We sat down (with a strong cup of coffee and some particularly excellent bread pudding) and selected 7 of the most appealing vehicles on offer right now. Here they are (let us know what you think): A 49 year old Land Rover - a classic workhorse. Lancia Delta HF Integrale - need we say more? A big red fire truck - we played with these from HotWheels when we were children and now we could buy…
