Did anyone see the link for the ralleye academy they have for kids between 13-17 yrs old? I wish my parents would have thought of that.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
Even an all-wheel-drive car wouldn't be considered a true rally car ... you can't rally the suburu WRX out of the box ... you would kill it ...
and many a racer got their start running FWD systems on the junior rally circuit ...

Read this interview with Scott Trinder ... he's an up and comer for subaru who talks about getting his feet wet with a FWD swift ...

Frush ... yes ... last sunday night, they showed the German Rally on SPEED... those FOCI's were kicking some serious azzz ...

The next race is in Japan, Sep 3-5 ... its a new race on the WRC circuit ... should be well covered ... those Japanese are really going to hate watching the fords and the euros tear up their ricers ... hehe ...
