Prodrive Selling McRae WRC Car

A bunch of people alerted us to a post by Prodrive stating that they were going to sell off a bunch of WRC and Group N rally cars in their possession including Colin McRae's original '97 GC8 WRC car at a ridiculously low price of £85,000 ($123,000 USD).

As of this post, the car appeared to have been sold already. However, there are a bunch of other rally cars that you can buy from Prodrive as they try to sell off some excess inventory. Here's a link to the cars for sale.

Marcus Gronholm WRC Return

Double World Rally Champion Marcus Gronholm has decided to come out of retirement to contest April’s Rally Portugal in a Subaru Impreza WRC.

The Finn, 41, will drive a latest specification Impreza run by Prodrive, with backing from Rally Portugal and its sponsor Vodafone. He will be co-driven by his navigator since 1995, Timo Rautiainen.

The appearance - which for now is being billed as a one-off - will be Gronholm’s first entry in a WRC rally since his retirement after Wales Rally GB in 2007.

“I made the decision a few days ago,” Gronholm told wrc.com. “It’s okay to come back again. Everybody is looking at me, and maybe I’m stupid, but to have fun and drive again, why not?”

Gronholm, who has won 30 WRC rallies, has taken part in the last two editions of Rally Portugal, driving a Ford Focus WRC on both occasions: in 2007 as a Ford factory team driver - when he finished fourth - and in 2008 driving the event safety car.

Nurburgring: Anatomy of a Lap

There is a really cool article in Road & Track about the Nürburgring where they dissect and analyze every section of the 'Ring. It even describes the scenery as you're driving through each section.

"Nürburgring's Nordschleife is the original 13-mile circuit built in the 1920s. With turns too numerous (and sometimes too subtle) to count, it would take our whole magazine to go through the intricacies of each corner. Here, we've done our best to compress a lap of the Ring in a new Corvette ZR1 into its well-known sections, the names of which are actually posted around the circuit."

Rally America Rd 2 Preview

Rally battle set for Missouri at Rally America’s Round 2

MINNEAPOLIS, Minnesota (Feb. 16) – Subaru Rally Team USA driver Ken Block has a target on his back heading into Round 2 of the Rally America championship, the Rally in the 100 Acre Wood, in southern Missouri Feb. 27 - 28.

The fast and flowing course suits Block’s flat-out style and he’s proven tough to beat at this early spring event. The event was the scene of the driver’s first national win in 2006, and he’s taken the top spot every year since then.

But it won’t be easy. Block’s teammate Travis Pastrana issued a challenge even as he was celebrating his victory at Round 1 last month in Michigan, saying he wasn’t prepared to let Block take another win in Missouri.

Currently second in the points, Rockstar Energy driver Tanner Foust is expected to debut a powerful new Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution X rally car for this event, while NOS Energy’s Andrew “ACP” Comrie-Picard is looking for another solid finish after he claimed the third spot on the podium at Round 1.

Polish driver Andi Mancin says he has upgraded his rally car in order to be more competitive for his third American event and he could also threaten for the win.

The new Super Production class should also feature some fierce competition. Subaru Rally Team USA’s newest member, Dave Mirra, is expected to debut a car built for the new class, while former two-time Production-GT champion Matt Johnson is looking for a comeback after a tough first round.

WRC Rally Norway Pics

Ford pulled the "slow down at the end of the final stage" strategy at the end of day one so they could go second after Loeb on day 2 to gain better road conditions. Apparently this didn't work out as planned because Loeb still won from the front position. Mikko Hirvonen did make up some time on day 3 but it just wasn't enough to beat Sebastien Loeb who won the rally by a very close 9.8 second margin.
