about the motorcrossteam... seems that the are quite active to update their facebokpage with pictures if you want to follow (atleast I am hooked already) ...

they also seem to update the englisch news section very fast on their homepage... has been fun to follow them from there.

If got the newsletter thing (the one you can subscribe to) right it actually is the pressreleasees they put out (and just in finnisch, but they seem to put quite the same thing in english in their newsfeed on the homepage atleast according to google translate)

That Ludde guy is by the way is blogging here:

He actually said this a few weeks back on motorsport's podcast. I quoted the link someone posted in some other forum. I would try to find it.

Loeb: Kimi's lack of success a good thing

Seven-time World Rally champion Sebastien Loeb admits to being relieved that Kimi Raikkonen has not done too well in the World Rally Championship series.

- It has been a good thing from the point of view of the level of the World Rally Championships series. This shows that it is not easy for the former F1 champion to win in rally, said Loeb, who is preparing for the World Rally Championship round in Mexico, in an interview with the local magazine Excélsior.

To date, Räikkönen's career-best rally result is fifth place in last season's Rally of Turkey. However, Loeb does not overlook the Formula One champion's skills.

- Kimi is a good driver and can show flashes at any time, Loeb said.

Raikkonen will skip Mexico's leg, which starts tonight Finnish time.

I just hope MTV3 hasn't done any of their usual "creative interpretation" of Loeb's words :p
