No problem, at first sight it was like if it was a pic about Kimi. But then I noticed the eyes, the helmet and The Finger! :O

Again:
Raikkonen linked to Monte Carlo debut
26th November 2010
By Charlie Contadeli

Kimi Raikkonen is set to begin his second season of rallying by contesting January’s Monte Carlo Rally, according to reports.

The 31-year-old Finn, 10th in this year’s World Rally Championship standings, is being linked to a factory-assisted Peugeot 207 Super 2000 prepared by the French PH Sport outfit, which oversaw the running of Raikkonen’s Citroen Junior Team C4 in this year’s WRC.

Raikkonen would be making his debut on the Intercontinental Rally Challenge season-opener if the deal was firmed up. He said: “Actually I don’t have any plans fixed for next year yet but I would like to stay in rallying. Of course Monte Carlo is a really classic event for any rally driver but there’s nothing sorted.”

Raikkonen has some knowledge of the IRC: he attended Rallye International du Valais in Switzerland in 2008 to visit his friend Anton Alen, who was competing on the former IRC qualifier in an Abarth Grande Punto. Raikkonen even took time out of his schedule to have an impromptu seat fitting.

Citroën made it quite clear that Seb would not run as long as this was a IRC event. Why would they let Kimi run it? (unless he is no longer a Citroen driver...)
It's just a FORUM!!!

yeah, citroen made it very clear about the sebs... the small if in this is that they actually are letting Elena (loebs co-driver) compete as a driver in the event with a citroen R3... and Kimi is a customer not a factorydriver but it is avery small if... But we will know very soon about monte because the will announce the entry list shortly after the 6.12 which is th last day to enter the competition...

Yes, it seems that Kimi will drive Enduro at the same race with Tommi Mäkinen and Kari Tiainen (he is a legend). I don't know more about this event. I am not sure, but seems that this will be at our independent day 6.12.

Yes, it seems that Kimi will drive Enduro at the same "race" with Tommi Mäkinen and Kari Tiainen (he is a legend). I don't know more about this event.

Here it is, Julia:

Kimi Raikkonen, Tommi Mäkinen and Kari Tiainen to Kärme Kustaa!

26.11.2010 26.11.2010

Rumors about Kimi Räikkönen's, Tommi Mäkinen's and Kari Tiainen's participation in Kärme Kustaa Business Class has this time not been created by the media. Kari Tiainen just confirmed that the patrol will participate in the competition.

The World Champions have seen much trouble in getting Kärme Kustaa to fit into their busy calendars.

The Formula One World Champion, current rally driver Kimi Raikkonen has been linked to Kari Tiainen and the Motocross-championship serie during the last days. According to Tiainen the Kärme Kustaa project started a long time ago.

The story is the same as most in the Kärme Kustaa -patrol have - The ancient Finnish daring and usually these gravel kings have also kept their word. As a consequence of the last dare Tiainen and Mäkinen both tested on gravel which vehicle is faster, motorcycle or car.

Makinen won that bet but this time the men work together or rather pull up the same bike from the swamp.

The whole champion-trio has a motorcycling background. Kimi Räikkönen's genre is motocross in addition to the four-wheeled. Tommi Mäkinen and Kari Tiainen are way more experienced enduro-men.

Four time rally world champion Tommi Makinen participated in Päijänne Ympäriajo in 2009. It's needless to repeat the seven times champion Kari Tiainen's merits in enduro.

The freezing weather seems to promise a route with fast speed. In Hämeenlinna there's about 10-15 cm of snow. You still have a couple of days to put together your own team and test your speed with the most famous Finnish motorsportmen. The registration ends on 28/11/2010.
To be changed soon - rko281, where are you??? LOL
