Rally New Zealand
Just wanted everyone to know that Speed channel is playing the Rally of New Zealand this Sunday the 18th @ 9pm. I know I'll have my butt planted to my couch rooting on Martin and Douval.

Thanks 4 the 411, dude.

Chewbacca, While Pikes Peaks will have a rally component in that it will have some short stages this year, its not comparable to other rallys in the US. One of the bigger and better rallies is in Lancaster Calf, called the Rim of the World. It's scheduled to start May 7th. Colorado Cog in Steamboat Springs will be in the fall. You'll see more cars are either of these events than you will see at the peak.

i am heading down to the springs for the pikes peak hill climb (as long as i get off work)

we should hook up.

and so i am not too far off topic: i wish i had cable...

That would be cool. Got to get up real early for that! A few months away. I might get free tickets since my roomate is a mechanic at Apex (motorcycles). And I have some friends that race up it on bikes.

yeah, its a really early morning... what, gates close at 5am? i guess i will be spending the night somewhere in the springs. i should probably book a hotel now, huh, lol.

someday i hope to run it, and a few other hill climbs, but not any time in the near future.
