Was keeping Rally1 the right call for WRC?

The WRC's short-term technical future has finally been firmed up. But was retaining Rally1 rules the right call or should rally have gone more radical?

Why all eyes have to be on WRC 2027 now

It’s a SPIN of two halves this week, with David Evans catching up with Colin Clark post-Finke in Australia, and Brenten Kelly in America following the latest ARA action at Southern Ohio Forest Rally. Or that was the plan. Then World Motor Sport Council made its announcements in Uzbekistan and, predictably, there was lots to talk about. Even though there were no changes to the technical regulations, the debate raged for quite some time. Now, the talk is of what comes next. If you’re a technically minded person within the FIA or the teams, the 2027 homologation cycle is almost upon us and rules have to be written fairly sharpish. Colin Clark reckons these could be the most important rules the governing body has ever written. What do you think?

Is Toyota in crisis?

Following last weekend’s Rally Italy Sardinia, Hyundai is 13 points clear of Toyota in the World Rally Championship’s manufacturers’ standings, and Thierry Neuville and Ott Tänak are sitting first and second in the drivers’ points. So is Toyota in crisis? That’s a question we ask on this week’s edition of SPIN, The Rally Pod. Host David Evans is joined by George Donaldson, Brenten Kelly and Jon Scoltock to dissect Sardinia’s major talking points. Is Toyota’s use of its part-time drivers not helping Elfyn Evans’ title chances? Did Neuville get it wrong by pushing too hard on Saturday? And what about the ‘sprint’ format of the event: did it work? We also look ahead to the American Rally Association’s latest round this weekend, the Southern Ohio Forest Rally.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

The WRC's Rally Italy experiment

A dramatically reduced number of stages means a very different looking Rally Sardinia. In this episode of SPIN, the rally pod, Colin Clark, David Evans, Jon Scoltock and George Donaldson discuss whether Thierry Neuville's Friday disadvantage could be nullified, if the new route offers value for fans, and what the WRC can do to increase its reach.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Digging deeper into a truly extraordinary ARA round

Oregon Trail Rally threw plenty of curveballs. The headline was both Subaru factory cars retiring within a mile of one another and opening the door for its 12-rally winning streak to be broken. But it was about more than Subaru’s unexpected disaster. An ARA cameo might become something more after Ricardo Cordero got to taste the winner’s champagne – albeit at the expense of a potential first win for Sam Albert’s Ferrari-powered Subaru. And then there’s the story of how Sean Edwards went to extreme lengths to keep his Volvo in the race. Brenten Kelly, David Evans and Alasdair Lindsay are joined by Edwards in this week’s SPIN, The Rally Pod to talk everything Oregon Trail.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Was Neuville’s Portugal performance a champion’s drive?

A dramatic Rally Portugal brought plenty of talking points to the World Rally Championship last weekend. While Toyota’s Sébastien Ogier secured his second consecutive WRC victory with a masterclass performance, Hyundai driver Thierry Neuville significantly extended his lead atop the drivers’ championship standings. Titles are won by maximizing your points on events where winning isn’t possible, and Neuville appears to have mastered that approach. Was it a champions’ drive that we witnessed last weekend? Our experts have their say on this week’s edition of SPIN, The Rally Pod, as Colin Clark and Jon Scoltock are joined by ex-driver Simon Hughes to discuss the action. A deflated Elfyn Evans and his unflappable co-driver Scott Martin, the rise of Adrien Fourmaux into a leading contender, and Portuguese ice cream are just a few more of the topics the intrepid trio chew over. See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Analyzing the defining moments of Croatia Rally

Croatia Rally’s ‘Super Sunday’ proved to be particularly dramatic as mistakes by Thierry Neuville and Elfyn Evans on the same stage proved costly on the latest round of the World Rally Championship. But just how did those errors occur? Were Neuville and Evans unlucky or could they consider themselves fortunate to be able to continue and limit their time loss? Ott Tänak too had his fair show of moments on the treacherous SS18, while Adrien Fourmaux lost more time than anyone – but bounced back to win the powerstage. George Donaldson and David Evans join host Alasdair Lindsay for the latest edition of SPIN, The Rally Pod, where George provides expert analysis on the moments in question. Rally winner Sébastien Ogier’s scathing indictment of the 2024 points system provides another talking point, while there is also discussion of Croatia’s chances of appearing on the 2025 calendar and the latest driver set to compete aboard Rally1 machinery.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Can Neuville maintain momentum on Croatia Rally?

Thierry Neuville heads to this week’s Croatia Rally with a six-point lead in the World Rally Championship standings. He’s been at the top of the pile ever since the season kicked off in January - but he’s had to rely on some stunning ‘Super Sunday’ performances on the past two rounds. Is the Hyundai driver building a sustained title bid? Or can Elfyn Evans find that elusive sweet spot with his Toyota GR Yaris and strike a momentum-swinging blow on a rally he won last year? With pressure building on Ott Tänak to produce a strong result, Adrien Fourmaux seeking a third consecutive podium, and returns for eight-time world champion Sébastien Ogier and Andreas Mikkelsen, there's plenty of WRC talking points for Colin Clark and David Evans on this week’s SPIN, The Rally Pod. The pair also look back on a fantastic Otago Rally in New Zealand and ponder the state of play with the WRC calendar.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

These two adrenaline junkies have traveled to the South Island this week to take part in the Central Machine Hire Otago Rally based in Dunedin.

Otago Rally preview and WRC Commission reaction

With Otago Rally taking place in New Zealand this weekend and an important WRC Commission just concluded, there’s lots to digest on this week’s edition of SPIN, The Rally Pod. New Zealand’s South Island is sometimes in the shadow of its World Rally Championship-hosting northern neighbor but its roads have their own character and are just as spectacular. Colin Clark and David Evans discuss what draws folk from all over the world to the wonderful city of Dunedin for the event. The pair also ponder the future of the WRC, where many key suggestions from the FIA’s working group have been overshadowed by the debate over technical regulations, while the European and British Rally Championship’s season-openers are further topics covered on the pod.See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Now that’s what Derek calls the 90s Part 3

Remember the story of Rally of Great Britain 1998? Of course you do. It’s a story all about Tommi Mäkinen, Carlos Sainz and Bodmin builder Nigel Barnett. It’s a story all about their Mitsubishi Lancer Evo IV, Toyota Corolla WRC and Hillman Imp.Ringing a few bells now? Thought so. Derek Dauncey was Mitsubishi Ralliart’s man in the middle of the Millbrook crisis when Mäkinen removed the right rear wheel against a concrete block - thanks to oil from that Imp. For the next three days, the Finn and his team thought that was the end of his world championship.It wasn’t, it was just the beginning of an unforgettable rollercoaster ride for Andrew Cowan’s team – ending on the highest possible high.This one is, however, the first half of a fascinating story. Next week, Colin Clark talks to then Toyota team manager George Donaldson about the disappointment that led Carlos Sainz’s co-driver Luis Moya to find a new way of putting his crash helmet back in the car…See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.

Predictably, controversy’s not far away...Add in some Lancia team manager Ninni Russo, words about the WRC’s much-missed journalistic guru David Williams (and his shoes) and the opportunity to name Colin Clark’s haggis-based (and, according to GD overcooked) recipe and you’ve got the fifth edition of The Rally Pod. See Privacy Policy at https://art19.com/privacy and California Privacy Notice at https://art19.com/privacy#do-not-sell-my-info.
