Weekend Watching: Tour de Corse Historique in 3 parts

This well-made 20 minute documentary has some fantastic footage from the 2008 Tour de Corse Historique rally.  The footage is a well edited combination of in-car and roadside camerawork, along with French language interviews with a very jolly group of drivers.  If you love Alpines, 911s and other vintage rally machines, this is a must-watch. It's incredible how bad these Corsican backroads are, and the occasional presence of animals on the course gives us a real step back in time to the days of the Targa Florio and other road races from when these cars (and many of the drivers too!) were young.


Walter Röhrl dancing on the pedals

It's almost hypnotic watching the footwell angle in this awesome 80's Rally video, featuring the legendary combination of Walter Rohrl and the Audi Quattro S1 Groupe B Rally car. The funky 80s electro soundtrack is an added bonus, of course.


1987 Monster Truck Flashback

I'm no expert on Monster Trucks, but I'd say 1987 might have been a peak year for that genre of racertainment. I consider Monster Truck rally as the automotive equivalent of WWF, and as a 7-year old I think I held Big Foot and Hulk Hogan in equally high esteem.  You gotta love what passes for a "course" here, and that Grave Digger has to do a 3 point turn to get around the track. Whether you think they're awesome, or just awesomely bad, let's take a trip down memory lane! Best part are the driver interviews. Why has Danny McBride not made a Monster truck movie yet??
