Preview: WRC hits Sweden

Snow, titanium tyre studs and one hundred and twenty two feet jumps: it can only be the Swedish Rally, round two of this year’s World Rally Championship. And it’s on telly (well, BT Sport). Defending Champion Sébastien Ogier won the first round, the Monte Carlo, last month, but it was not an altogether convincing victory. […]

Meeke: “You touch the brake pedal and nothing happens”

The WRC got off to a slippery start this weekend, as the weather battered the twisty cols above Monte Carlo. Last year’s champ Sebastien Ogier picked up where he left off with a confident win, followed by local specialist and excellently-named Bryan Bouffier. Hearty congratulations to both. But if we’re honest we weren’t paying much […]


Monte Carlo Rally: final report

Maybe it is, as the old line about the French Revolution goes, “too early to tell” whether World Champion Sébastien Ogier was wobbly, or just plain cautious on the first day of the Monte Carlo Rally, his first the defence of his 2013 title.



Kubica dominates early stages of the Monte Carlo Rally

Kris Meeke is back in WRC

Top Gear is delighted to be able to tell you that our favourite rallyist, Kris Meeke, has landed himself a peach of a gig for next year – as a works driver for the Citroen WRC team. He’s the first of Citroen’s 2014 driver line-up to be announced, and – to our minds at least […]



Watch a WRC driver crash into a field of poo

Rally co-driving: how hard can it be? ‘Left a bit… right a bit… don’t crash into that massive field of excrement by the side of the road…’ We jest. Rally navigation is one of the toughest gigs in motorsport (the toughest, of course, being the poor Top Gear employee responsible for Stig’s daily ‘carcass platter’), […]



TopGear.com at Wales Rally GB

We’re approaching the end of both the Formula One and WRC seasons. In both a chap called Seb has already tied up the world championship. But while the Austin GP in the US of A was another dull processional affair, Wales Rally GB was anything but. The route was a belter, featuring some stages not […]
