WHAT IS A RALLY DRIVER? part 1

By Bill Wood

The contemporary performance rally driver has been compared to the 21st century evolution of an "old" 19th century gun fighter.

But once that concentration is aimed down the road, it’s transfixed. Rigid. Even hypnotic.

Is the D1GP Dead?

Is the D1GP Dead?

MotoIQ Staff Report

We normally don't webmine but after the loss of of a few key personnel last month the D1GP organization has been totally rocked by the departure of founders Keiichi Tsuchiya and Daijiro Inada.  We don't think the D1GP can continue as we know it.  Personally the D1GP has always been pretty political and controversial and in this country has been overshadowed by Formula D.  Perhaps the demise of D1GP will mean that some of our favorite Japanese drivers will return to compete here in Formula D.

RIP Bruce Soltys The Passing of a Great Friend 

From Gardella Racing

ED- Bruce Soltys was one of our traveling family on the Formula D circuit.  We remember him as a helpful, friendly guy.  Our last memory of Bruce was him wishing us a safe trip back home in the hotel hallway after the Vegas round of FD.  He will be missed.  Godspeed Bruce!

The Gardella Racing Team truck driver and great friend to all, Bruce Soltys, passed away this Saturday from a cardiac arrest. He was with the team in Monticello, NY doing some volunteer testing. Bruce was loading the Chevy pickup truck, preparing to leave the track after testing had been completed and fell. He was rushed to the Catskill Regional Medical Center Hospital in Callicoon, NY where he lost his life.

By Colin Holte

Like many auto enthusiasts it had been one of my long held dreams to attend that glorious feast of automotive aftermarket goodness known as the Specialty Equipment Market Association or SEMA.  Also like many auto enthusiasts I didn't really have a job in the automotive industry that would work to gain me entry to the show.  How I fixed that is an interesting story.
