I refuse to watch it in SD.

SD? Standard Definition?

Id rather watch it with no ads in 720p whenever I want, than pay for SOHO/Sky just for two shows.

Prefer the netflix model where they release the whole season in one go!

Yes, Standard Definition - a show like this shouldn't been sullied by such old tech.

I also watched a 720p digital version but I pay for SoHo so does that make me a pirate? (rhetorical). I started watching it on TV but that SoHo watermark drove me spare in less than 2 mins so I switched to my alternative which was just as good quality but without the watermark.

Winter.

I can gain 5kg, grow a beard and wear the same thing 6 days a week, black Levi's and a black jumper, just swap out tee shirt and briefs.

Rally Whangarei this weekend, come say hi, I am in the Manukau Auto Centre red 1995 STI RA, unless I get a seat in Ken Blocks car.

Here he is, testing yesterday. Rally is the sh*t.

I'll try to bring the boys over B) On my bike ;)

Ask someone to clean the pathway afterwards this year please :rolleyes: Apparently the council isn't smart enough to work out that 100mm of gravel over the concrete path is REALLY hard to walk/run/cycle/skate on :rolleyes:

Are you passengering? or Driving?

I would love to have you "passenger" my rally car one day. That would be hilariously funny. Even more amusing would be seeing someone try to get to the stage on time and fill out the time cards.. and that before reading pace notes at pace without shitting in their pants.

Reminds me of a really good song though.

Don't get me started on that. haha. I have many stories of f**k ups, trials and tribulations, the last one was the biggest, ramming anther car mid corner mid stage at speed.. Good times.

Anyway, wearing the right under wear is a good idea too.. nothing like full opposite lock at massive speeds to loosen breakfast.

I have to hand it to anyone who co-drives, you need big balls.

Indeed. They qualified the last WRC down this road here. f**k me they're balls to the wall fast. Super impressive IRL.

Its hard to imagine just how fast they are when we go through at what feels like maximum attack and they do the same 20km of road 90seconds faster.

We are fast though, even your average Kiwi car is 2seconds a kilometre faster than the cars 10years ago. Doesn't sound like a lot but over a few days thats huge.

Cant wait!!

First two stages are in the dark tomorrow night, we have 12 brand new tyres for the event and a new engine and ECU, hard to think you can drop $20,000 prepping for one event.

In the words of a legend. "If in doubt, flat out"

I did that Rally Drive weekend course some years ago in the Maramarua forest... two things struck me:

1. How much I can scare myself in a proper rally car

2. How slow I was going compared to a professional and how much more scared I could be in a co-pilot's seat

The flying lap at the end of the weekend was terrifying.

I obviously did a good enough job over the weekend because they let me drive one of the rally cars (Evo III) from the forest back to base unsupervised... anti-lag on the street FTW.

You are not supposed to use anti lag on the street. Keeps the turbo rebuilders in business though!

Nothing wrong with using anti-lag on this street though :

True. Closed streets are all good. Just don't go using it to run to the shops or in touring.

I will add hydraulic handbrakes to my list of things that are choice bro. Spot apex, turn in, lift hand brake, floor it. Smile.

Now if only I hadn't lost all my in-car footage from the last event. Thanks MACBOOK.

I went for a hot lap there in a evo last year, didn't seem that quick. The only part that had my butthole pulsing a bit was coming over the top of the hill and couldn't see where the road was going.

Well I wasn't screaming like a little girl but it was actually faster than I thought possible (at the time).

I know the one... tricky, left right on the crest into an unsighted left at the bottom of the hill. Needs to be set up a long way before you can see the entry to the second bend.

Haha, wasn't that quick, its not about the speed its about the balls, you felt that on that crest, now imagine that for a solid day on blind roads the driver doesn't know... most of the cars are less than 300bhp, my car is only 250bhp, but I match and beat cars with 600bhp or more, and thats race drivers. I guess thats what awesome about it compared to rack stuff, its another skill level, nothing better than beating a guy with a car that cost 10 times more than your POS hatchback or old Subaru.

You should have a drive next time, sounds like you may have the balls for it? I am looking at buying another rally hack to get into gravel driving next year, start on rally sprints and see how it goes. Maybe start with an old Civic or Toyota and see how it goes.

I have been in a few cars, V8 Super-tourers on slicks, GT cars etc, some rather fast road stuff and nothing was even remotely scary after being in or driving a rally car at max attack on a blind road, tracks are about power and repetition... anyone can get good at something if they do it over and over.

I would like to go in, or better have a drive of a full on drift car one day though, now that is a bit interesting, I had a good play in my old V8 BMW and that was fun, lots of smoke and two f**ked tyres. Better still it was an Audi trackday so they all got scared by oversteer.
