It seems to be the year of winning your home event. Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg won their home grands prix in Formula 1.

While it’s true we have missed out on regular WRC updates you haven’t missed out on anything you couldn’t have guessed for yourself.

The best car of all?

The Citroën 2CV is one of the most intriguing cars of all time. But is it also one of the best? That’s the case Chris Harris puts forward in his video this week. A little about the car before you watch the clip. The 2CV was built from 1948–1990 and ended with an estimated production run […]

Sebastien Ogier wins 2014 Rally Portugal

Okay, so this update is bringing you news that’s a week old, but you get that from time to time with a blog that’s an unpaid labour of love rather than a full time gig. You’ve seen already, too, that Sebastien Ogier won Rally Portugal. It’s Volkswagen’s fourth win from four rallies in 2014. Coupled […]

Sebastien Ogier wins 2014 Rally Mexico

Clichés are usually so entrenched they cannot be avoided. In Rally Mexico three clichés became clear: 1. Sebastien Ogier wins rallies; 2. the winner in Mexico MUST wear a sombrero; and 3. Robert Kubica rolls rally cars. Business as usual, then, it would appear. Although, Ogier did have to overcome Citroën’s Mads Ostberg on Day […]

Okay, we know this update is a week late, but you pay peanuts, you get monkeys! So, last weekend Sebastien Ogier did what he does best and that’s dominating his teammates and opponents on the way to another WRC victory, this time at the season-ending Wales Rally GB. Like the Seabstian in Formula 1, Ogier […]

VIDEO: Robert Kubica crashes out of Wales Rally GB

Robert Kubica’s debut in a WRC car hasn’t gone to plan, being forced to retire from the event after crashing out twice. The new WRC2 champion was on the back foot from the start of the event after his co-driver, Maciek Baran, retired prior to Wales Rally GB. Kubica and Citroën drafted in Michele Ferrara […]

If it’s to good to be true, it usually is

The Porsche 911 and the Citroën DS: one can lay claim to being the most iconic sportscar ever made and the other is, plainly, one of the coolest cars ever made. So imagine if you combined the two into an orgy of retro perfection. It would be one mankind’s greatest built achievements, right. Well before […]
