Sebastien Loeb drives F1 Car

Four-time world rally champion Sebastien Loeb had his first taste of Formula 1 performance at the Paul Ricard Circuit in the South of France last Wednesday, December 5th, when he swapped cars with Renault's Heikki Kovalainen.

Loeb drove Renault's R26 championship-winning 2006 car for a Total-Elf promotional event.

"Today has been a fantastic experience; if I'm honest, it's a little bit like Christmas come early!" Loeb said. "I have just become a father for the first time, I won my fourth world title last weekend, and now a dream has come true: driving a Formula 1 car for the first time."

"I was very impressed with the grip generated by the aerodynamics, which is radically different from what we are used to in rallying," he added.

The Frenchman, however, is no stranger to circuit racing as he competed at the Le Mans 24 Hours last year.

"I already knew Paul Ricard well from my testing before Le Mans last year, so it meant I could really make the most of today's opportunity. It was a truly exceptional day."

Citroen team-mate Dani Sordo also had the chance to try the Formula 1 car, while Kovalainen drove the Citroen C4 WRC, with Loeb as his co-driver.

Civic Type R vs S2000 Battles

We hate you Honda for not bringing over the civic type R. Instead we get the crappy overpriced Civic Si Mugen edition.

These cool videos of the type R will tie us over 'til we can illegally import one of these for ourselves.

WRC Wales Rally GB Results

BP-Ford takes a 1-2 finish in the season finale but you know it would have been sweeter if Grönholm/Rautiainen had taken the championship before retiring. They had their chances but Loeb was just a little better this season. We're going to miss Marcus and Timo next year in the WRC. They will be tough to replace.

PDX Tuning Wins Subaru Tsukuba Challenge

SANTA MONICA (November 29) - The final round of the 2007 Subaru Tsukuba Challenge at Laguna Seca was run in conjunction with the Redline Time Attack on November 10 & 11 and saw PDX Tuning from Portland beat out its main rivals, Crawford Performance and ESX Motorsports in a true nail biter. The action started with final qualifying on Saturday and was as much about furious activity in the garages, as hot laps on the track. Even the 92db sound limit came into play.

Timo Rautiainen Awarded Michael Park Trophy

PRESS RELEASE – 30/11/2007


On September 18th 2005, Michael PARK (“Beef”) was killed in a tragic accident during the Wales Rally GB in a car driven by his long term partner Markko Märtin. Michael is much missed by the entire WRC Community. A group of friends and colleagues inspired by Vince Laverne decided to perpetuate his memory by creating the Michael Park "Beef" Trophy.

The trophy is a bronze bust which has been created by the French artist François Chevalier and has been donated to the family of Michael.

Each season a smaller trophy will be awarded to a WRC co-driver who has best achieved the overall qualities associated with Michael during his career with consideration taken into account of actual results, attitude, commitment and any specific action or achievements. The decision will be made by a jury selected from the WRC community. In 2006 the inaugural trophy was presented to Daniel Elena.

They had to choose between 5 nominated co-drivers:
• Denis Giraudet (France)
• Phil Mills (Great Britain)
• Ilka Minor (Austria)
• Stephane Prevot (Belgium)
• Timo Rautiainen (Finland)

We are pleased to announce that in 2007 Timo Rautiainen has been chosen as the second winner of the Michael Park "Beef" Trophy.

His achievements include the following;

• Loyal co-driver to Marcus Grönholm throughout their WRC careers.
• World Rally Champion for co-drivers in 2000, 2002 and potentially in 2007.
• 5 WRC victories in 2007 season to date.
• Competing in his last World Rally this weekend in Wales before retirement.
• Highly committed and dedicated professional co-driver who was greatly respected and liked by Michael, his team mate in the 2005 season.

The trophy was presented to Timo by Daniel Elena prior to the start ceremony of Wales Rally GB in Cardiff last night.
