WRC all the way even though I also like the touring races. The WRC guys just have more balls (or are just more stupid) than any of the other drivers (the more stupid part does not apply to NASCAR drivers of course ). They are in cars that go 0-60 in the 3 second range on gravel. Do drifts I can only dream of over surfaces that would kill almost any other car. All i can say is wow, I could never do that.

If you like computer games you should check out Colin McRae Rally 04 for the PC. It's one of my favorites.

I haven't started the AWD championship yet so I only have times with 2WDs so far. But I just hit the stage with a subaru and drove a 2:55.61
It was a big change after driving 2WDs all the time :P

2:45.09 is a great time, though!! Maybe we can set up a remote championship

I love the WRC pro stuff, but some of the amature rallies are pretty funny. All their cars are trashed and busted up it's good stuff. And they still go balls out just like the pros with tons of money.
