Default WRC Wales

Final rally of the season and it all comes down to this:

Sebastien Loeb leads by 6 pts and seems to have the championship in the bag
BUT...anything can happen with the English weather and road conditions wreaking havoc this time of year.

In order for Marcus Grönholm to take the championship he must win and Loeb must come in no higher than 6th place. This seems highly unlikely with the way Loeb "the machine" has been driving of late, but who knows.

Subaru is just running this rally for sh!ts and giggles; looking foward to running the new car next season. Let's hope they get it together for next year.

See full previews below.
