WRC: Cyprus Rally *spoilers*

Seb Loeb has won his third WRC Championship

this could not piss me off more, it seems theres no stopping him, he's shattering records left and right. Gronholm is the only driver thats even close in competitiveness, and Subaru's problematic season has more than put Solberg miles behind the two. I fear that Citroen and Loeb will dominate for years to come. As the seasons go on the CHampionship gets less and less competetive, and more predicatable and boring. I can only hope that the citroen C4 isn't as fast as the Focus WRC and Impreza Wrc next season. I wanna see a fight dammit! Come on Gronholm! i know you can take Loeb!

I like watching it, but can't ever find a race on anymore. Do you know which channel WRC is on?

Yeah, it's hard to find the races, and I have hardly had any time to watch racing at all this year. I haven't even had a chance to watch a full F1 race yet this year, and I only missed 1 in the last 2 years...

I love WRC though, and I think a trip down to the Mexico even t some year would be a blast.

^ i'm planning on goig next year, but you can at least stay updated on WRC.com, no video coverage (unless you pay) but they've got some dece stories and that like. I'm part of a really cool bit torrent network that users from europe upload footage on to, but thats still a hassle

i'm going to try to make it to the mexico race too. i'm a huge fan of wrc and it really makes me mad that it isn't big in the U.S. the only way i see any of it is videos people have put together on youtube, or playing colin mcrae rally on xbox. love that game, so realistic.

So Sebastian dominated again. I figured he would after the start of this season, but I haven't kept up with it. It's hard to read about it when all you want to do is just watch it in action. Man, I miss that more than anything else on TV. This has just been a crappy year for TV - we lost WRC, Top Gear... er, is that all? Who cares, that's more than enough. I've started watching MotoGP to fill the gap, but it's only partially working. Talk about some good racing there, though.

Someone will eventually take down Loeb, but it just may be a while. I'm sure everyone thought the same thing about Michael Schumacher.

^^Who needs good content when the masses are so entertained by Reality TV? I know that I would much rather see some guys in a shop building a sound system for yet another H2 than see actual racing coverage...
