But each time I watch the WRC maestros in action traversing rather challenging terrain at full-rev, with a cannot-lift mentality, I am forced to consider them the best in the world! THE WORLD'S BEST DRIVERS! THE WORLD'S BEST DRIVERS - AGAIN! What is your view? Cecil Munroe Gleaner On-Line Writer [...]

TRACK-WORTHY: MYRIE'S DC5 R - A TURBOCHARGED CAR'S WORST NIGHTMARE! PART 2

The history and savory awesomeness of the Type R will not be repeated on these pages. I was brimming with incalculable anticipation and expectation. After a brief discussion I engaged the cockpit. The Recaro's blare a snug fit. The driving position and the Momo steering elicit memories of Senna at Monaco. The gleaming aluminium shifter, like an only child, summons attention.
