I'll surprise you a bit Sean, I think the Fords will have their best finish to date at Argentina. And, I gave Petter some tips while he was at Rim, so he may finish a little higher too (haha). Risto is back with Tommi, so don't be surprised to see Ford and Subaru on the podium (probably about a foot below a Peugeot driver!).

It's all in fun.

Happy motoring, Tim

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say Ford is gonna choke again... just a feeling I have. I will have to agree with Tim on the height of the Pug teams... haven't seen a start list, is Citroen in this one?

Tim, what'd you tell Petter, get a truck??? LOL...

I caught the tail end of a horrific (like 10-12 rolls) crash on Rpm2night but didn't get the driver. It looked like a Subaru. It was hard to tell because it was an amatuer vid. Hope they are all right.

BRAAAAAAAAP!

makinan (sp?) car 555 rolled it going into a corner at high speed. It was nuts! Me and my brother were watching it on tv and wondering how a desert racer (say class one) would have faired in that crash???

Thats the one.
And talk about the luckiest guy in the world, how about the guy under the car when it gets air-born.

When I first watched it I wasn't sure whether that was a guy they flipped over or some trash in a bush or something. As it was a guy that is one lucky SOB!

That was the luckiest guy ever. That Subi was a total yardsale. I hear of a TJ rally jeep coming in the works ;)~
