Hot Hatch Love Lost?

At the time of writing this I am driving a DS3 Performance. That’s it above. With its Parisian boulevardier looks and feisty engine it is the very epitome of a hot hatch. There’s much I like and some things I like not. I’ll write a pretty positive review soon; but there’s a problem. Continue reading

Britain On Top Of The WRC Rallying World

Britain is firmly back at the top of the World Rally Championship (WRC) tree – of that there can be no argument. And Britain has arrived there just in time for one of the most exciting, entertaining and open seasons in the series’ 43-year history; again, an indubitable fact. Continue reading

Red Bull TV To Revolutionise WRC TV Coverage

Red Bull TV is set to revolutionise the coverage of the FIA World Rally Championship (WRC) in 2017, with a pioneering approach that will bring fans of the high-octane sport closer to the action than ever before. For too long viewers in this country have been starved of decent coverage. This is especially good news as 2017 is going to be spectacular, with new cars and driver changes. Champion Sebastien Ogier has switched to the Ford M-Sport team, which will be a new challenge for him. Continue reading

Volkswagen World Rally Team Stop At The Top

As a Rally enthusiast I from time to time try to persuade others that there is no better branch of motor sport. Driving as it should be and far more exciting a spectacle than the tedium that is Formula One. Although there are many diehard fans (see Rally Wales) for some odd reason this sport has failed to ignite the public as it once did in the deadly days of the old Group B cars. It doesn’t help when the most successful team ups and quits without a word of warning. Continue reading

Audi RS6 Performance: What’s That…

I rarely take strong drink. This is because I obviously spend a lot of my time driving and as we know all too well these two pleasures of the flesh don’t mix. This is both a blessing and a curse to me. It is a blessing because I don’t get to consume much alcohol and it is a curse because I don’t get to consume much alcohol. Continue reading

Subaru WRX STi – Old School, Still Cool

Many will remember the halcyon days of rallying when Colin McRae monstered the World Rally Championship in the forerunner of the Scooby featured here. Then, for a while and unaccountably, the Subaru WRX STi went all hatchback-y and the purists grumbled. It was just wrong. Then it disappeared completely! Then, a couple of years or so ago, Subaru brought it back to the UK! Hurrah! Continue reading
