    Oscar,

    Do something stupid so that we can see you on TV. Failing that, we'll try to get this thread to Jo Momma before you return. :beer

    There were rumors not long ago about a WRC event in the hills above Chattanooga. FIA officials visited and apparently had good things to say about the proposed stages. The SCCA holds a rally there now. Not excatly your backyard but close enough. I don't know if there are firm plans though.

    Cherokee Trials was an FIA event this year, but it wasn't a WRC event. Lots of drivers from Europe came over. Forest Service might nix this place in the future though. Bad mojo this year.

    Polish Driver had a polish news crew following him by copter.. Pretty dang cool.

    more over at Specialstage

    I'll just sit content with my second place overall in SU2 in the DC area Rallycross series..
