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.

Sebastien Ogier wins 2014 Rallye Monte Carlo

Sebastien Ogier overcame a poor tyre choice on Day 1 to fight back and win the Rallye Monte Carlo in style, getting his world championship defence off to a near perfect start. To rack up his first Monte win Ogier had to reel in an impressive Bryan Bouffier in his first outing at the wheel […]

Hyundai’s WRC return didn’t quite go to plan

We have no doubt Hyundai would love nothing more than for Thierry Neuville’s rivals to be looking the tail of his i20 WRC in 2014. We just don’t think they quite imagined his tail would be all smashed up like this. That’s the sad an unfortunate result of Neuville’s off in the icy conditions of […]
