Well 2004 season has started with the right earnest. And for a team like Ford, which was pretty much at the back of the field even when good ol McRae was around, the new season seems to be something similar to BAR's performance in F-1. Only that here Ford is leading the way. Way to go Ford!

That Focus was always one very good car, it only needed the right spirit to move it on. Looks like that spirit is Markko Martin.

Meanwhile the preview of the next race is on the 15th on AXN at 9:00 while the race review will be on the 23rd at the same time.

Start Yumping people.

Thanks very very much Revv, for the WRC info. As we had spoken the last time, I really want to start following this sport from this year onward. Lets watch the next round together? Any bars/widescreens showing it?

Need not worry, Pal..the doer-of-good is here!!

You in the United States - the shopping plaza of the world. Check out this link for ebay with the WRC search results. Or just type in "WRC" in the Ebay search box. Also remember one thing about ebay, the inventory is almost always being updated so check frequently for such rare items. And buy ONLY from a seller who is well rated.

Another option that I found, while in the states, was to use amazon.co.uk - Its sister retailer in the UK. Good car books were hard to find in the States, and I always opted for amazon.co.uk. It was more expensive what with the currency and the shipping but if you want it really bad.... The UK Amazon has rally previews of 1995-2002, skipping some years in between.

Hope that helps
