i've started watching wrc this year which i find pretty exciting.
like i found myself sitting in front of my computer waiting for the torrent to finish downloading and such...
since they're taking a long break, maybe i'll starting watching 2007 vids.
oh yeah, i havn't figured this out yet though...
wheres teh evo?
Mitsubishi have'nt entered WRC for last 2 years , except for privateer teams.
ahh i see, they lose interest in it, no money? why the sudden drop
mitsubishi corp was having financial issues, so they pulled there WRC Team budget !.
they still do the Paris/Dakar style "Rally Raids" tho...

The WRC2008 underwent its first asphalt test last week, in the hills of Italy. Piloted by Markko Märtin, the Estonian sums up the test:
“It was good, the initial feeling is really very good” commented Markko. “We worked on improving the performance during the week and learned a lot about how the car works and how it responds to changes which was good.
“I think it was a very good test and I’m feeling confident of the car’s asphalt performance. The car has a good balance and feels positive to drive. We didn’t have any major issues during the test, and we managed to work on a few areas of setup. It’s only the first time out in these conditions so there’s more we can do, but I think the car will be competitive on asphalt.
“We learned that the car fundamentally works well on this surface and responds well to setup changes. I think there are just a few small areas of fine-tuning, a few little things that we need to do, but it will be very good.
