thank you! :shhh:


no it definitely didn't look like he was suffering from too little space inside the car. And I have to say that i actually like the mini rallycar it looks like a cool car and a little bit different rallycar in a positive way... and the painting they have on it at the moment, thats called attitude ... I mean the white citroen they are testing looks sterile and boring compared to the mini :cool:

Well in the description of the video it says that they are testing the car with an interim body so I think that might not be how the car looks in the end.

And usually they put crazy paintwork on cars so that it is more difficult for people to see certain parts of the car that they are testing I think. ''hmm''

Oh I hope Marcus decides to come back :pray:

Julia, you seem to follow other rally drivers too, not just Kimi which I think is nice :hug:

Kris Meeke test driving the Mini! :C:


OMG I can't WAIT to see Marcus Grönholm testing too!


Very nice video, you can see how he is building up his speed. At first I thought "this car looks really slow" but he was getting faster and faster. Marcus's video is just 'full throttle' :hatoff:

To me that already 'seems' pretty nicely balanced. It'll be nice to see them on the grid next year for sure! Marcus back, even for just a few rallies, is awesome. Thanks for the vid's :)

Marcus' website is in the process of being revised:

A sign of things to come, perhaps? :zz:

I haven't been hare for ages and probably someone has already posted this, but....

Kimi, Kimi, Kimi, Kimi... can we stop for a second?

Did anyone notice that there was another rally in September (in Italy) and Kibica was best in his class?
Anyone?
