Yup thats Markko Martin doing the famous finnish jump.
Sadly he lacks the killer instinct of the other drivers thoufh he is pretty talented..more of a safe driver.

Im putting my money on MArcus as long as the 307 doent let the team down...they will be able to pull it off....after all it's the car's first year...so problems are expected.

Remember the 307 won something like it's first ever 5 stages till it packed up

lol...see how far they jump! Can't beat finland for those jumps, although Australia does come close on a few stages.

yup...i read somewhere that the record is at something like 108feet!!!!!!
dont remember the exact figure though.

In most of the WRC videos the focus is always air-borne
Focus is a nice looking car.

gronholm is the best of the lot .. buyt 307 2004as we all know the car has a lot of reliability problems .. at one time on shakedown they showed gronholm swearing at the peugot guys for power steering failure during the race. seemed very frustrated..

I feel Sabastien Loeb has a good chance of winning this year and he probably deserves it, but I'd really like to see Solberg do it yet again!
Though very early to call anything at the moment !!
