Fast and Furious 4 Review

It's been nearly 8 years since Universal released the first Fast and Furious movie way back in 2001. With the original cast returning their was much anticipation from audiences early and it delivered in a huge way as the movie is estimated to have earned over $100 million in the box office its opening weekend, with $70 million in the US and $30 million internationally.

After all this time though, some things don't change:
  • The overblowing of the underground scene into a giant block party of show cars and hoochies
  • Over the top and impossible racing action
  • An ability to connect with the fans like no other car/racing movie

As much of the plot and action may surpass reality, this franchise racing series connects well with the fans despite critic reviews. As the import scene has grown up, so have the producers of the movie as you will see a better taste of cars in this movie. Overall, the cars are cleaner and more impressive than the usual "sticker-ed" up rides of the early series with both domestic and a variety of imports littered throughout.

Also, go "bye-bye" to the 1/4 mile drag. You will see street racing more like from the video game Need for Speed incorporating drifting and some "Taken Out" action from Burnout. You will also get some rally/off-road racing action with the new Subaru and highway pursuits as well.

The original cast was also a large reason for the success of this movie. Since the first installment:

  • Vin Diesel is still a bad ass and fan favorite
  • Jordana Brewster is still hot as hell
  • Paul Walker still needs to work on his acting

The movie is pure entertainment. For those who are fans of the series, you will really enjoy this movie as the action and characters are fun from beginning to end. However, if you were always hatin', there are plenty of reasons to watch just to bag on it. But for an off and on fan like myself, the experience was nostalgic and fun and I am already looking forward to the next one...

WRC Rally Portugal Results

We all predicted that Loeb would take this one but there were still a few surprises.

  • Ford didn't pull the positioning strategy and Hirvonen leading after day 1 had to sweep the stages on day 2 and lost ground to Loeb.
  • Gronholm DNF'd on day 2 after a good 4th place standing on day 1 in the Prodrive Impreza. This opened the door for Petter Solberg to take home 4th position for the rally.
  • Latvala fell off the mountain rolling 20 times on day 1 and DNF'd.

Next stop; Rally Argentina end of the month.

Rally Tennessee

For Immediate Release - Raleigh, North Carolina - April 2, 2009

Fifth Annual Rally Tennessee Returns May 23 - 24, 2009

  • Round Four of the Atlantic Rally Cup returns to Linden, Tennessee

  • New format promises biggest event yet
  • National exposure expected

Celebrating it's 5th year, the acclaimed Rally Tennessee expands to a two-day event May 23 - 24, 2009 showcasing more rally cars and motorcycles than ever before. Early entries are being accepted and the regular deadline is May 15.

NASA Rally Sport's annual Rally Tennessee will kick off summer during Memorial Day weekend just an hour west of Nashville. This Linden, Tennessee based event will have cars and motorcycles racing over a closed course of super twisty roads on Saturday and Sunday.

The rally is unique in its terrain which takes advantage of the winding along Tennessee's mountain ridges. Although rally racing roads come in many flavors, the predominant format in North America is gravel roads. Rally Tennessee is a 'tarmac' rally and provides a special challenge to the racers. Competitors must use specialized tires and re-tune their suspension dramatically to hold the course. Even their driving styles must change completely to accommodate the very different grip condition of Perry County's roads.
