The episode I downloaded is an Xvid avi with mp3 audio. Hahah, yeah, those first two rallies were something, huh? Say, would you ever consider roughing it with Samantha? :wink: And I don't mean just splashing some mud on her. I'm talking about going out into the woods and ripping up the roads. :twisted:

:twisted:

of course i can't drive it right on the edge like they do in WRC b/c i can't be crashing my car. i was surprised though to find out that amateurs can compete in the WRC and thought about running a rally in my car. sure would be fun but i doubt i could ever manage it.

do they just start the amateurs in the back, and see how close they can get to the pros?

i would assume so based on some of the cars i saw. they would get run over if they started in front of the pro teams. but they don't really say much about the amateurs on the show.

The sixth and final episode of the series has been uploaded. This time we follow team Subaru on the final rally of the season in Wales Great Britain. Eaglecatcher, I think this episode is especially relevant to your question about amateur participation on WRC since it follows one amateur team along with team Subaru throughout the episode.

there's only 6 episodes? :(

at first i was hoping for 15 or so episodes, 1 for each rally. but then on the 3rd or 4th episode i realized they had skipped some rallies.

Always rallycross Jomo. Great way to have fun in the dirt with much less chance of damage to yourself or the car.

i had trouble with their search too so i ended up just going to the WRC section and browsing until i found them.
