It ain't a looker, but I'd love to drive that. Maybe all that ugly on these new rally cars have will make the trees cower & lean back away from the stage giving more room for lurid slides.

You're right but that wing would look good on my KIA.

The new Citroen seems to be working well here for Kris Meeke.

The last few seasons someone has always mentioned seeing a light shining on the ground under the left front corner of the VW during testing. It's there on the Citroen this year...and I still don't know what it is!!!

Anyone know how much they're actually planning to cover this year? I assume it will be just the usual brief daily synopsis.

The Citroen gets its war paint on.

First, a quote from Kris Meeke that makes me wish the season was about to start:
Quote:
‘The 2017 car is an exciting machine. It’s quite a big step from 2016,’ he said. ‘We know the regulation changes but when you drive them in anger, they’re a different beast; you really have to be on your game, every metre, to keep on top of them. For me, the human element will come to the front even more in 2017, because in places it’s going to be difficult to extract the potential of these cars. At times they are so, so fast.

You'll see wings like that on the back of lowriders this coming summer.
