I want top gear back! I want WRC back, i'm surprised they haven't cancelled moto gp covereage, but i bet you thats next

They need to get their heads out of their asses over there at speed, their losing viewers like mad. I used to watch the channel for at least an hour a day, but theres NOTHING worth watching except for the moto gp and F1, i miss when we had F1 decade and we got to see all those old races, damn i miss SpeedVision

back to loeb, i think if gornholm had'nt crashed out in those two rallies they'd still be neck and neck. As for the cars, i know that the Focus is the only car that can compete with the Xsara, and suposedly the C4 is faster on tarmac. This does not bode well for gronholm, luckily most of the events are still dirt, that gives gronholm and the RS a good chance next season, he just can't f' up at all. Hopefully Subaru will get their shit together, because despite technical issues, they have two of the best drivers in the WRC today, Atkinson will be a star if he stops wrecking, and solberg coud return to a former glory if A) subaru gets their shit figured out and B) he stops slamming his poor imprezza into obstacles or off course

I don't know about that. Rossi was able to ride with a broken wrist, so I think Loeb can step up to the challenge.

^seriously doubt it,

they turn their wheels WAY more in a rally than they ever would in a moto GP race, plus his arm is fractured in four places

What was he doing to fracture his arm? It's not just turning, but I agree that would be difficult. As a MotoGP rider, your weight on your hand through the wrist and you're constantly moving around on the bike. However, that injury sounds much more serious than what Rossi had. Apples and oranges I suppose, but I've seen a lot of people step up to the challenge despite adversity. I think Loeb could be a man to do it, but we'll see.

This just in:

Colin Mcrae will be driving for kronos citroen in turkey!!!

i'm torn between my team and my favorite driver!

but if you saw what he did in that wretched skoda last year, you know he'll be all business in that citroen, McRae was destroying transmissions last season, and in a car that is more than capable, he's almost sure for a podium. This is gonna be such an awesome event!
