Yea ported.. Ari's my fav too. Too versatile, winning in lotsa different types of rally cars and the fact that he still sometimes runs as a Privateer during WRC 18-20 years after he started is amazing...

Rehaan, the climb dance vid has won the Cannes best short-film award in 88. Truly a masterpiece. The best part is when that fly slams into the camera... so real...

How can I start writing about my favourite WRC driver without mentioning the Audi Quattro Driver Michelle Mouton, who upset all the hairy bottomed blokes, when she became the first ever woman to win the World Championship event in 1981. Though not my favourite, but she deserves a mention, i think.

But, anyway Here are my 3 Favourite WRC Drivers:

1. Hanu Mikola
2. Walter Rohrl
3. Carlos Sainz

(as it was all time favourite just couldnt finish off with one)
