Loeb is looking strong this year and may win the championship this time around. Petter is a true fighter and will not give up. I have a lot of respect for these 2 drivers. They are the most calm, cool and aggressive guys around.
Though my fav is still MArcus.
Some Funny moments in Turkey:
Marcus describing Timo's incident....it was jus too funny the way he described it with his hands
Markko's co-driver asks him on a special stage..."did u watch football y'day" .....dude... [img]http://www.team-bhp.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/***.gif[/img]
The 307 is definitely getting stronger by the day but in the points tally competition is way ahead will be difficult to catch up.

heres a little write up from World Rally News about Timo's incident, apart from that little thing Marcus still drove an excellent rally, well the fight between Loeb and Solberg is going to be fun next time around in Argentina, im still voting for Solberg on winning the championship this year


the write-up

Timo Rautiainen has urged the Rally of Turkey organisers to change their procedures after narrowly escaping injury when a sharp object speared its way through his Peugeot’s floorpan and his seat.

Marcus Gronholm lost several seconds when his co-driver began screaming midway through SS11 and it took several hundred metres before the object found its way out of the car.

“It’s not nice to be famous for your ####! We can laugh now, but at the time it was very serious situation. Marcus had to stop, because he didn’t know what it was. The thing that came in was still in the seat. This needs to get the attention of the organisers and the people who make the roads. There had to be something on the road that was very sharp and very hard. It had to be a steel pin.

“The organisers like to put steel pins in the road for plastic tape. This is the only country in the world they do this. I strictly recommend the organisers never, never do this again,” Rautiainen said.

The Finn won the Inmarsat Star of the Rally award for his pains.
