    I was suprised to see such a close battle between Ogier and Ostberg for the first couple days. I was also surprised that Mikko was such a non factor. I thought Citroen had the best tune for the temp and elevation but I guess it was just Loeb's dominance. I was great to see Block finish in the top ten, USA!

    Since WRC anounced that they were going to put updates on their website/Youtube they've been pretty quick to shutdown uploads of the TV coverage. Pretty lame considering their coverage is only about 3 minutes a day tops.

    Yeah the 3 minute clips are pretty useless for me.

    Last year I had a good time watching IRC, but they are now part of the ERC, so I started watching that this year as well. It's pretty good, and readily available on you-tube to watch. It's a good outlet to get my fix of rally.

    And, with Petter's absence from WRC, I don't mind not watching WRC anyway (my fav driver, since Tommi Makinen retired, but Tommi owns a team in ERC). Will have to find a way to watch Global RallyCross soon though (Petter will be doing that this year).

    No. All the cars are 1.6L turbo 4 cylinders. FIA Spec.

    The WRC has put the smack down on videos this year and they decided to put out their shitty 3 minute clips of the race,big deal. No wonder rally isnt popular in the USA nobody gets to see it.

    "It's a long shot, but Sebastien Ogier could secure the 2013 FIA WRC drivers' championship title next week at Rallye Deutschland. If he does, he would have secured a title earlier than his arch rival Sebastien Loeb ever managed."
