    Default Rally GB

    Did I just hear correctly that the first stage of the first day of Rally GB was cancelled due to "ice on the road"

    What is the world coming to?

    Doesn't look like much fun, but then again its not supposed to be easy is it.

    One thing springs to mind though, how in the hell can 2 people in a fully prepared rally car need to be airlifted to hospital after crashing with a LR Disco when no one in the Disco is reported as injured?
    One things for certain, they don't make rally drivers/cars like they used to.

    Aye, I remember when the RAC used to be a proper rally, not a sedate tour of the Cardiff ring road!
