If you are a fan of the WRC then take a look at the videos and photos on http://www.WRC.com

I'm amazed to see that the Ford Focus WRC driven by Markko Martin got this high jump in Finland at 130 mph!! the posted distances are in meters.

All the time! Go to SpeedTV.com, search the schedule for "rally" and print out your own TV schedule. Thats the best way to keep up with it. Rally Finland was AWESOME and so was Marko's driving. I will admit though, that Petter has the best camera location on his car this year. Almost as good as Sainz' "bumper cam" from last year.

Couple of years ago, at the Cherokee Int. Rally press sage, I got a ride with Seamus Burke. We got air a couple of times, but never like that. 420+ hp. He looked down just before we hit 1st jump and said, "there's 119 " sheeeet.

This was second jump at press tent, on his first pass. By the 5th pass, I rode with him he had gotten faster.

Mmmmm rally. Hands down, without a doubt my favorite form of motorsport. I have one of those pics as my desktop at work and I always get the best comments from my co-workers. My favorite is "Damn, is that a Focus?"
Did anyone see the story on RallyXS about how they push all the data around? The cars have realtime datalogging and all the stages have a satellite uplinks at the start and finish that report the cars positions. Way cool stuff if you're a technerd like me.
