WRC 2011 with MINI !!

I personally feel that WRC is getting a bit boring.
(I've been watching it since Group B era)
Mainly because of lack of multi-manufacturer battle.
It was fun when Lancia, Ford, Toyota, Subaru, Mitsubishi
was all battling together !
Yes, Loeb is an awesome driver, comparable to
Kankkunen, Sainz, Makinen, McRae..., but
he doesn't have any serious rival at this moment.
最近のWRCはメーカー撤退が目立ってイマイチ
面白みに欠ける気が・・・。
ランチア、フォード、トヨタ、スバル、三菱、が皆で
激しいバトルを繰り返していた頃が懐かしい!!
たしかにローブは速いし、カッコイイし、だけど
ガチなライバルが居ないんよね。

However, WRC 2011 might get a little more interesting
with the involvement of BMW Mini.
(Them pulling out of F1 and going into WRC is like the
opposite of Toyota... I wish Toyota, Subaru, Mitsubishi, Suzuki
would come back to WRC soon !!!)
I guess the WRC regulation for next year has changed to make
the cars smaller 1.6L turbo engines.
Time for Taka to join WRC !!! :)
でもでも、
2011年WRCは少し面白くなるかも。
BMWがミニで参戦するらしいんで。
(F1辞めてWRCに来るなんてトヨタの逆よね。またトヨタ、
スバル、三菱、スズキもWRCに戻って来て欲しいね~)
来年からエンジンの仕様が1.6Lターボになるらしい。
タカさんも4AGでWRC参戦か?!(笑)







I want to see the production model of this car !!
是非コレの量産モデルを見てみたいね!!
