Welcome back to the podcast glad to have you here riding along on the day after Thanksgiving, Black Friday for the days. So many of you are looking for deals and shopping and you've been going at it and frankly the extended now over to the past month that I have. So I mean, it doesn't have the special Zine that it once had. But it is the day after Thanksgiving. It is the day after going and hopefully being with family, being with good friends, eating probably more than you should. You know, deciding today that it's not the day to restart a workout program because you really having trouble probably rolling over in bed. Well, today, I just had that thought that you know leftovers are great things. Leftovers are things that you get out of the refrigerator, you take them out, you eat them, and frankly, for me, turkey sandwiches are much better the day after the day or even the day of. So today what I thought we'd do is on the podcast is we've been talking a lot about elections lately we've been talking about a lot of other, you know, just issues that have been going on. And you got one coming up in front we'll just preview it now coming up on Monday. You don't want to miss. We're going to have John berlau is going to be with us talking to FTX scandal. You want to be a part of our Monday podcast as well. But today, I wanted to do what we'll call this the leftover categories. Things that we've just not had a chance to pick up, things we've not had a chance to, you know, to really dive into. So I just want to spend a little bit of time while you're out shopping, you're listening, you riding around, maybe even some of you are getting up and doing expectations. Let's talk about this. First thing up, last year, we and we've talked about this on the podcast before that the Democrats obsession with doing whatever they wanted to do and sort of be damned with the rules, everything else just doing it because they can do it. At the time, a lot of us said this is going to come back to bite them. This is going to come back and be a problem in the future. What they get done now will come back to be a problem later. The thing that you have to realize in Congress is as much as you might think otherwise, Congress is really a body that operates over very set schedule, all fours are very set rule package. It offers a very set quorums and decorum and how it goes about its business. And over my biggest gripe with the Nancy Pelosi, speakership over the last four years, and especially the last two that I was there, and I wrote in my book, the clock and the counter. I wrote about this was the Democrats would be willing to end result do anything they had to do, whether it was taking the rules of practice of the house and throwing them out, whether it was breaking the rules and prices of the house, throwing them out. They didn't care because at the end of the day, they wanted to get an end result. It was either get it Donald Trump or was either to get legislation passed, whatever it was, they were going to do it because they simply had the votes to do it. Simply having the most to do something is not the best way to do this. I'll use an example that I've used before. Nancy Pelosi and I clashed many times on the floor. One of those times that we classed on the floor was at a time in which she was giving a speech during impeachment. She accused the president, Trump at the time of a crime and Colin McRae, which you can not do. I know rules of the House and language are very different than they're there for a reason, but she said that she, you know, she made the claim. I was handling the bill for the Republicans. I stood up and I said, I'm going to give you a chance to correct your language. She said, nope, I've already approved this. She threw her papers at the well and left. So I had her words taken now, which means that she couldn't speak the rest of the day. It's a parliamentary punishment for doing something out of the rules. She forced then after having several speakers or accused themselves on a chair, finally standing warrior said, yep, you did break the rules. She forced the Democrats to come back down and basically suspend it overrule the chair and say that what she did was fine and that she could basically overdo any punishment, follow that. Why not say that story? I tell you that story just simply to show you mindset. All that would have happened to Nancy Pelosi. Was that she couldn't have spoke the rest of the day. We were already late in the afternoon anyway. She wasn't going to speak anymore on the floor. Is it matters, but it was the principal and the purpose for her to not be called wrong on doing something wrong on the floor of the House, although she was a speaker and should have been held to a higher standard. She forced her entire party to come back now and to overrule her punishment. Now this took about an hour and a half, two hours to do, but for her undoubtedly it was worth it. Even though it meant taking 200 plus years of tradition, 200 years as oppressed and everything in overturning it. I say this to simply say, this is what the Democrats wanted to do for the minute they took back power in 2019 and then began into the next Congress as Congress is just closing up. In this last Congress, they came in and they began to take members off of committees right after the Congress was formed last year in January 2021. They began to take Marjorie Taylor Greene and others and were stripped them from their committees and in green's case actually for things that she did before she was even a member of Congress. A lot of Republicans and Democrats on both sides says, look, we don't need to do this. Whatever you feel about whatever happened before, she was a member or some of these other members while they were here is one thing, but taking them off of committees, you go down this path, it's going to be a, it's going to be consequences in the future. Well, part of that consequence in the future has now come home to roost. And that is, Kevin McCarthy, who has gotten the votes to be the speaker nominee for the Republicans. Right now is he is getting it. He made a promise to a TV on Phoebe the day that Adam Schiff, Eric swalwell, and Omar, Ilhan Omar would be stripped of their committees. Now, personally, I don't think they should have been on these committees to start with. And especially swalwell, who had the issue with his dating a Chinese spy, Schiff, who's had trouble with the truth or many occasions in Omar sitting on foreign affairs and having anti semitic comments, all of this while they were members of the body. Now, McCarthy has said they're not going to be able to start. This was coming. It was known. You could see this coming a mile away. And it's a continuation of really the chipping away of what we have seen. It started really by the Democrats in this idea that we can get what we want in the rules, be damned. We saw this in the January 6th committee, no matter what is being said or been said about January 6th committee, the way it was put together and Nancy Pelosi not allowing the Republicans to have who they wanted all the leader wanting on that committee. Was wrong. Plain and simple. And now it is politicized the entire committee and no matter what good they thought they were going to get from it, has been blown because it's been politicized and those on the right and those on the left have two different opinions..

"Following this one, prepare to be amazed. Colin McRae's previous record of being the youngest, world rally champion at 27, hasn't just been beaten. It just got smashed. Let's find out who just became the youngest ever champion how he ended Finland's 20 year wait for a title. And what he can do for the future of the sport. Let's get up to speed with autosports, Tom Howard Tom. Welcome back to the podcast. Thanks for having us. Back on the show. So you just witnessed history being made in New Zealand with the youngest ever champion. The world rally championship. Let's remind ourselves, though, who the previous youngest champion was, tell us more. The legend that is all that was sadly Colin mccrea, certainly for me, he was a hero of mine growing up one of the reasons why I even got hooked into watching rallying and I'm sure there's several people of similar age to myself and an older and younger that would have also enjoyed watching Colin McRae. He was a real special talent on the his only world title in 1995 and did that at the age of 27, which was the youngest at the time. 27 back there would have been seen very, very young because champions were sort of, you know, the late 20s, early 30s, and sometimes mid 30s were sort of seen as the prime age to win a world title. So yes, Conor McRae was known as the mister maxim of attack. He was a very exciting driver to watch race for Subaru, the factory team and his early 90s then went to Ford and then he had his final season with citron in 2003. He still regarded as one of the legends of the sport even today, 26 years on since his world title. And in the top level of rallying in the modern era, tell me about the recent champions. And how long they'd been driving? Were they also all older? Inverted commas. Champions. If you're not too familiar with rallying and WRC, then in the last few couple of decades, we say it's been dominated by two Sebastian's two French French rally drivers, Sebastian Loeb, and Sebastian ogier, Loeb has the 9 time world champion, the most successful and greatest rally driver of the ball. He has 80 world rally championship wins and has been competing even this year on a part time basis at the age of 48 and still winning events so Monte Carlo in January, so Sebastian ogier took over from him. One 8 titles and is the reigning world champion this year until Kelly Robin Perez success. That sort of period of dominance was split by tanak who won the world title in 2019 for Toyota. So that's how the world rally scene has played out over the last few years. While following rally New Zealand over the weekend, Callie Robin perra is now world champion. They call him king Kelly. You could also call him birthday boy. Tell us about the weekend and Callie Robin Pereira being the new world champion. What's a weekend if you or Kelly off of Paris celebrating your 22nd birthday? I don't know. He does get any better, I guess. If you're a rally driver or if you're if you're dream is to win the world rally champion, it doesn't get any better than the weekend that Callie Robin Perez just experienced not only has he become that the youngest ever world champion at the age of 22 and one day. He also became the first Finnish world champion for 20 years, so it ended that drought for a rally mad nation. So it's a massive deal for Finland. They've already announced that there's going to have a special celebration day in the country in his hometown of your vascular. So it's a big deal for Finland. And a big deal for Kelly Rothenberg. I mean, he's just a phenomenal talent. It's a record, I reckon we won't see beaten. A new benchmark, which I think is just above and beyond what anyone could have imagined. Now, he hasn't come from nowhere, like all overnight success stories. It's been 20 years in the making. Maybe 22 years in the making. Because in the beginning, there was Harry, Robin pere. Yep, Callie's father, WRC driver, 1993 to 2006. What happened with his dad's career and how did that lead into Cali getting behind the wheel? Harry Robin pere a former factory driver for Peugeot and sayat as well and it's a bushy. So he's been around a while as Harry. But I only ever won one rally back in 2001 at Sweden. So he was a regular podium finisher, but never really a title contender. He was what you'd call, I guess, a very safe pair of hands. You would have implored him to just pick up the points and be that sort of driver there, but perhaps not the one you put your money behind to lead your team to a title. He's really has some helped build obviously his son Kelly wrote from pair in terms of the rally driver. From an early age, he's got him in the car in cars driving from I think 8 or 9. He's been Cali has been driving some sort of vehicle. What do you think about it? Yes, he's the youngest of a world champion at the age of 22, but he's been driving things for a very long time. And our over that time, you just build the skills. Boy, as he built some skills because most of the paddock most of the service park sorry would envy the skills that Kali Roth and bear have his age. Certainly, you just watching him, he is he has skills beyond his years. The composure that he has behind the wheel, I don't think we have seen in many drivers in all motor sport. It's something that I generally can't really describe, but he just has this sort of, I just jump in the car and I just go and do it. There's no worries, there is no sort of panic. He's machine like, I guess. Is the only way to sort of it's just a machine. I'm generally speechless at how good he is because we're obviously fold him all season 6 rally wins. But he just has this ability to just destroy his rivals, but he's real skill. And I guess this is sort of comes back to all those years that you've been training in all sorts of cars, trying to learn car control. And it's his car control, which sets him about apart from the rest, because when the weather gets tricky, Cali rov repair is untouchable. There is no one that can come near him when it starts raining or gets slippery.

"He also said he was quite sketchy in places Tom and he wasn't even fully under control, but described being in the zone. We talked about that on the podcast before where if you were driving a rally car where you are the car and the car is you and it's just all one, but he had to often you can there's a sports person do that for a period of time whether it's a hundred meter race in the Commonwealth Games have been watching or but to do it day after day is a superhuman effort. So it sounds like you're massively impressed by his weekend. Yeah, absolutely. I think everyone was hugely impressed by what tanak did and as I said earlier he was really sort of competing with lesser machinery. And I know that there was there was a bit of mind games from tannock, which was quite interesting during the weekend, you know, he was sort of saying our Toyota unbeatable here and that's fair because Toyota, this is their backyard, this is where the team is based. They are based in the host city of the rally vascular. They've won every rally Finland since their return to the championship since 2017. So they were fully expected to win this. So to be able to sort of fend them off like he did was just simply incredible. And clearly there's something going on behind the scenes. He was an inspired tanak. He was driving with a purpose that we haven't seen, perhaps this year. And let's remember that he did win in Sardinia, but this was a different kind of victory. And he was quite emotional for Tanaka at the end as well. He sort of paid tribute to his wife for being there for supporting him during some difficult times he didn't sort of allude to what those difficult times were, but he's clearly there was some there was some emotion involved in this victory. Which we haven't seen before. And as I said, the only way I could sort of describe it was he was sort of driving like a classic Colin McCrae maximum attack style that we've seen Colin McRae produce over the years where it's just full attack. There's sketchy moments at the very, very many sketchy moments, but somehow he manages to drag this through. And I think the telling points of this was on Friday where he sort of said, you know, the car is uncomfortable, but I have to be uncomfortable to be able to produce these times. And after one stage, even said that his hands were shaking, that just so how much effort and what he was doing to try and hold this car. He was physically shaking afterwards. So it was a herculean effort and one that will go down in history. And a battle of the Finns behind him over Friday and Saturday with lappy and Robin pair a bit of a ding dong between them earlier in the rally before Robin Perry pulled clear finishing order tanak first, Robin pair a second lappy third elf and Evans in fourth Thierry navy 6th if sorry a new deal and katsu was sick there wasn't he. And Gus Greene Smith in the first, the fourth. In 7th, I hadn't run down the order, which I hadn't so apologies dear listener. So Tom, what do you make of that battle of the Finns for second and third place? Yeah, so obviously calorie run per massively the favorite going into this rally with his home round. It was his homecoming, I think everyone was to deliver a victory. It would always be tough starting first on the road because we championship position, but he had a huge amount of support in Finland. If there was anyone worried that Finland not having a world champion for 20 years that the sport was sort of it's popularity was dwindling, then Cali rov and pere has reignited this because the crowds were huge over the weekend. His support was massive. If he wanted to get a glimpse of calorie often pairing the service park, you were sort of 6 or 7 deep in the crowd. The Finns really do love this rally. An interesting stat and I will get onto the answer to the actual competition in a moment, but interesting stat that appeared yesterday was to sort of give you context as to how popular rallying is in Finland the entire rally is broadcast on pay television and free to air television via online platform. They have their own special TV studio in the service park just for the finished television. Sort of a sky F one style type of studio. And the figures that were produced over the weekend were 5.5 million hours of WRC rally Finland were watched through the national television provider. Which are quite too, if we look at it from a population point of view, every thin watching at least one hour of WRC over the four days. So that's a that is what Raleigh is infinite. It is a national obsession. It blew my mind just how popular it is. It is just literally one of their most favorite things to do and watch. Okay, well let's quickly hear from Kelly Robin Perez in his own words after you spoke to him right now. You're obviously

"Dedicated to rally, where we put all of our content there, and occasionally we crop up here as well in the auto sport channel. When there's a big thing to talk about, which there is today because we've sent our man Tom Howard to rally safari. It's going to be a wonderful event in Kenny around 6 of this season. The world rally championship sees a return to an event that was a regular from 1972 to 2002 back after a 19 year hiatus, though, and Tom welcome along to the podcast. If you can just tell us, you know, about your journey. Oh, we keep hearing about his travel chaos in the newspapers. And what it's like where you are and where you're working from, just set the scene for us. Firstly, we've got to say thanks for this opportunity to be able to actually go to cover an event like this. So a lot of strings have been pulled for us to be here in the first place. So those people that know who they are should receive some thanks. But firstly, yeah, it's quite a long journey. I haven't had any sleep for 24 hours. So I'm very tired, but yeah, so flew out from Heathrow to Cairo last night. And then got a plane from Cairo through the night to Dar es Salaam in Tanzania. And then got another flight from Tanzania this morning to Nairobi in Kenya. So I landed in Nairobi about 8 a.m. Kenya time. So then we had a two and a half hour road trip to naivasha, which is where the rally is based. So I've seen quite a lot today. Some things I quite confronting, some things quite spectacular. But yeah, it's been a bit of a long journey, but we are here and we are here to cover safari rally. I can see you're working from some sort of, it looks like an office. I mean, you're on your own in some sort of room. What facility do they build in the middle of the desert? So we've got like we're actually in a wildlife resort near Lake naivasha, which is a holiday destination, so we say it's quite a touristy area. Lots of hotels, lots of safari trips that you can go on. So we're in a sort of a wildlife resort where they've constructed all these temporary buildings to house all the rally cars this weekend. Near the town of nova. So it's a small town, not two hours north of Nairobi. But we're in quite a extensive metal structure with a tarpaulin roof and I've cheekily nabbed the FIA office, which is a little bit quieter than the media center to be able to do this podcast. So thanks to Vera, if I media delegate. So let me borrow her office. So we should be doing this in vision because your Wi-Fi connection is rock solid. It looks great. It's nice and crisp. It's better than when you have 5 minutes down the road is who sets all this up before we actually get into talking about the rally just for our listeners who might be interested in like the infrastructure of a rally event in safari rally Kenya. Is this the FIA that build all this or WRC and the promoters? And the safari rally organizers. I think a point that we should make here is this is a really serious event here. This is the biggest sport and event they have in Kenya. It's bigger than any football event or marathon or anything else. So everything is pulled into this to make it a spectacular as possible. And I have to say, being a hugely impressed with the Internet connectivity and the service park and everything so far. I've had my own personal driver, take me around everywhere today. So called Nelson, who should get a shout out. He was a very, very nice fella. So yeah, this is a serious event. The president will be here tomorrow of Kenya to oversee it. And this is a key part of his sort of manifesto, I guess. He was a very key part of his plan to bring this event back to Kenya as it has been a way for a while, obviously came back last year. But this was all a very key part of their sort of political strategy because this is not only a sporting event. It's all about tourism. And it has such a long tradition, as you said, at the beginning there. So it's a very, very special event for Kenya. Colin McRae's last win was there. It's been won by Richard burns and Tommy McKinnon. It did come back last year, but a kind of a legendary event for those people who might not be super into their rally. What's it like for speed and the location and the kind of surfaces they'll be on. So this will be one of the toughest on the calendar and this will be even tougher than it was last year as the crews have been saying today in the press conference. But these are high speed gravel stages, very open stages. So you're out in the middle of now where really lots of wildlife so they'll be giraffes, buffalo, elephants, zebra, so the crews will come across all sorts of different animals on there and their ways through the stages, obviously they try to clear the stages before they run through to make sure it's as clear as possible, but you can't really legislate for any zebras running around at the erratic. But yes, they're very fast, open stages. And the graph is quite soft and sandy in places. So the car is actually sort of dig in quite a lot. And if you're not careful, you can actually get stuck as calorie roughen Perry did last year. So you get stuck in this sort of quicksand like gravel, which is called fresh fish. Is the local term. And so it's quite an interesting combination of you can not go flat out on this event. There are too many areas where you need to be careful and preserve the cars. It's so rough in places. So it's really going to be a case of who measures it the best in terms of going flat out when they know they can, but also making sure the car is safe and healthy. So you reach the finish. It's going to be a real rally of attrition. Yeah, organizers know what they're doing in terms of clearing the way. But how do they clear the way of the animals and to try and keep them clear of the cars? In the old days, every crew used to have its own helicopter run ahead, but they don't have like these days. So there is a helicopter that goes through and a double zero car, which goes through to make sure the stage is clear before anyone comes in. But one of the tools that some of the teams run to sort of help scare wildlife away so they don't have any trouble with they run a special flashing light system on their headlights. So they're constantly flashing, which is hopefully which hopes to catch the eye of any animal and sort of warn them that there's a car coming. So there's some little clever little tools I have, but largely speaking, there isn't a great deal you can do, but the organizers do the best I can to make sure that there is no dramas. The last rally out was a warm one, but what are the conditions going to be like for the drivers and inside the cars, these new hybrid cars? Yes, so in Sardinia, they ran some tweaked modifications to the cars to combat this increased temperatures in the cockpit. Sardinia was incredibly hard, 40°. We're not looking like we're going to exceed 25 here in Kenya. So it's going to be a lot easier, shall we say on the cruise, not no less tough, but the temperatures won't be as high. There is also a threat of rain on every day. So which could also throw a spanner in the works. So yeah, the conditions are very mixed. It's going to be a real challenge for all of them. Kelly Robin perra arrives there with a 50 point lead over Thierry Neville. Tell us about the form going into this event. So yeah, Kelly obviously had a quiet event last time in Sardinia, which was going to be a tough one for him to open the road, always going to be very difficult for him there. With the way that the roads are, so dusty and tight and compact..

"Carlos made a habit of winning inaugural rallies, and this was not by chance. His teammates credited signed success to his intense preparation and his insistence on testing and getting the most out of his cars in difficult conditions. Signs got third place again in 1997, finishing behind McEnany and mccray, despite winning again in Indonesia and acropolis. Man, this dude just rocks acropolis every time. He rocks acropolis. He loves Greece. He loves, is that Zeke. If there's one thing we're good at on this podcast, it's boiling down entire cultures into one dish. Side dish. Yeah. I need to travel more. I mean, the only exposure I have to Greek food is like when we order Mediterranean and that's not even like exclusively Greek. Yeah. It's Mediterranean. It's a region out of country. I'm ignorant, and I'm sorry. My sister went to Mykonos. I'd love to go to Mykonos. I'd love to go to Santorini and see all those. Oh, yeah. You know, white houses, I thought that was Mykonos. I think it's a theme with Greece is to, you know, blue and white, like the flag. That's right. It looks awesome. I'd love to see the coliseum. That's in Rome. I know. I'd love to see the acropolis. I'd love to drift a car around it. I'd love to see the Parthenon. Look, if you're a past gas listener from Greece, email us, tell us what kind of cool cars you have and where we should go if we ever travel there. We'd love to hear. Dude, we're going to go to the Parthenon, which is, I guess, near acropolis, or a temple on the Athenian acropolis. Yeah, so. That's the big one on the top of the mountain that you see in every picture. That's so sick. Sorry for that side. Now, the highlight of 1997 for signs might have been winning the race of champions, the only motor sport event featuring drivers from Formula One, WRC, IndyCar and NASCAR going head to head in identical cars. Once you know it, signs beat mccray in the final round. Race of champions is pretty cool. We might have to do something about that. Yeah, we should. Let us know if you want to hear an episode on that. Signs went back to Toyota in 1998, where he drove the corolla world rally car to victory in his first race, back at the Monte Carlo rally. He went on to win the New Zealand rally and was only two points behind the leader Tommy mackinnon headed into the final event, the rally of Great Britain. This time, victory seemed certain for signs when McEnany was retired on the first day, signs only had to finish fourth or better to win his third championship. Signs was in fourth place an imposition to secure the championship when his corolla's engine gave out only 300 meters from the finish line. Oh no. The engine blew a hole in it, the car wouldn't start. Luis moya threw his helmet through the car's rear window in what would unfortunately become an iconic moment of moya and signs his career. The loss was almost surreal in how heartbreaking it was for the pair. Moya recalls quote, I remember a football player from the Barcelona team, a good friend of mine. He said, I can't imagine. I'm trying to hit the last penalty in a football match in the World Cup and I miss it. I said, no, no, no. Imagine that the ball explodes. We didn't miss it. Signs still doesn't talk much about the event, recalling it mostly as a learning experience. I mean, 300 meters couldn't you just run out and push it? Maybe. That'd be my heart would explode. The letdown from 1998 bled into the following year where signs finished just 5th overall with no wins. Toyota won the manufacturer's title, but dropped out of WRC the following year to focus more on Formula One. Signs was forced to find a new home yet again, so he went to one he was familiar with, returning to Ford for the third time in teaming up once again with Colin McRae. These guys just can't get enough of each other. No. Signs one that inaugural Cyprus rally, which was thrown together in just four months to replace the China rally. Signs relentless preparation paid off again as he led the race from start to finish on what would have been a new level playing field for everyone. Sims finished third in points that season driving the Ford focus RS WRC. This is a sick car. 2001 wasn't signs best season. He didn't score a single victory, but remained competitive enough to finish 6 overall, only 11 points behind that year's champion. Subaru's Richard burns, Richard burns, Richard burns rally. Dick burns. Still a dick burns. Science finished third in 2002, one point ahead of McRae before Ford decided to reduce the contracts of their two drivers to focus on improving their cars. Signs and McRae left for citron in 2003, but this time signs co driver Lewis moya left him due to a disagreement over a contract. The two would remain friends because their Spanish said moya. I'm more of an open person. I'm more of an open person. I speak more than Carlos and I think that's why the relationship was so good. For 15 years, we lived in a cubic meter together. Of course we had some moments that were difficult. Of course there were big silences. But we always got back together. And science said, I have very much enjoyed being partners. I probably pissing off so many Spaniards right now. Spain's number one automotive history podcast. Past gas. No, I'm. Nevertheless, signs push forward and drove the last two seasons of his rally career with his new co driver, Mark Marty. Signs one yet another inaugural rally in turkey. This dude just can not be stopped at least for the first race. Solidifying his reputation as the winner of new events. This is also the citron Zara's first win on gravel, sorry if I butchered that name, proving it was a car for all surfaces. It's spelled XS ARA Zara. That makes sense to me. Yeah. Science mccray and Sebastian Loeb drove Citroen to a manufacturer's title in 2003 in Citroen's first full season in the WRC. And that would go on to be kind of a dynasty itself with Loeb, right? Yeah, Sebastian Loeb, freaking monster in this car. In 2004, Carlos won his 26th and final WRC victory at rally Argentina. This was a WRC record at the time. It was a left, but it was one of the best, said signs. I'm sorry to be that guy that relates everything to racing simulators, but Argentina is probably one of the hardest courses in dirt rally. The course itself is like a super narrow dirt road that goes through a bunch of volcanic rock. Yeah. It's like, if they had a rally on Venus or something, it looks like that. It's insane, dude. And it's really cool because the crowd is all perched up on top of the rocks. But man, to win that. So even finish that is a feat in itself. Yeah, I would imagine that volcanic rock when it gets wet is probably really slippery. Yeah. Well, looking at it, I'm sure it's some of its volcanic. Yeah. Yeah, so. Well, that's right on the line of fire. What do they call it? Oh..

"Left the dummy. Tom there, he just seems to be taking it all in his stride. He's absolutely amazing. Yeah, again, I mean, he was extremely emotional at the stage end when the reporters came to him and you could see he was physically shaking. I don't think he quite believed he could do it and pull that win back that seemingly was lost. They cut to the Toyota camp and the highlander camp and their faces were just like dumbfounded. How has he done that? Like no one can explain how he did this, which is one of those sort of weird moments. But yeah, Callie, what a superstar. He really is something else and I think we will. It's a big, big call this, but already he's got a 29 point lead in the championship, but I think we will see if he carries on like this. He will win this championship and we will become the youngest ever champion, which will eclipse, Colin McRae's record, and he was mccray was 27 when he did it and Callie's only 21 at the moment. And how about having less of a reference point for the roads because of crashing out on the first stage in 2021. So it's not like he had loads of experience under his belt to call upon. Absolutely, he would not have been a favorite coming into this rally. Simple as that, yes, he had obviously some testing beforehand, but last year as we all know he had a big crash on the first stage. He's rally was 5 kilometers, so he has no knowledge of the rest of the stages. So to do what he did, he actually praised his seat is his note making crew for the rally because they really obviously delivered him some great information on the stages to be able to do what he did. But yeah, going into a rally, you would have said, yep, he could have got a podium, but the win, you wouldn't have said he would his favorite because that is a tough rally at the best of times, and to do it with the wet weather and all the mud on the roads that happened. Yeah, phenomenal achievement. Latvia even said that on Friday it was the best ever performance Callie had ever done in a WRC car and you have to say it's his best ever rally. There's no question about it. It was phenomenal. So he's won on snow on tarmac on gravel in mixed conditions. Is it now time to start talking about odds and things like that? Look, it's a season where it's so much is going to happen and we've got drivers coming and going as well. But do you want to make an early prediction so that if you're wrong our fans, like I just mentioned can say, but in April, you said this. Yeah, I've fully happy to be shot down, but if, as I said, if it carries on like this, if he carries on like this, there'll be no stopping him because a 29 point lead already, that's already a rally, is an important. So yeah, you did it. There won't be trouble in the air. There's no way he'll go through a season. And it'll be perfect. It's just not done, but if he carries on the level of performance like this and what is important here is the maturity that he's showing that he's driving because he's only 21. But what he was doing in Croatia was quite quite phenomenal. Yari mati actually said that at his age, there was no one on the level like Kali is right now. All right, he is doing something that we haven't seen before, which is he's just got this maturity of knowing when to cut corners and not in it, and there's an art to that. Which sort of takes years to learn, really. And Callie is doing it right now at the age of 21, which is a bit of a worry for the rest of the field, because if he's doing this now, he's only going to get better. Imagine what he's going to be like at 25. Like what are we going to see here? Is he going to be? He could well be the next lobe or auger. There's no question about it. So you caught up straight after the rally as well, with Toyota, WRC boss Yara Matty. Latvia and he had this to say..

"Let's review an explosive rally Croatia. It's the gravel notes podcast with Tom Howard, my name is Martin Lee, asking Tom the questions today and holy moly Robin pero wins in Croatia a year after crashing out on stage one. But that's not a simple, rally nobody could have predicted how that one went. What are your impressions? If you're a rally phone right now, you're being spoilt for choice with the drama and excitement that is happening in the championship and has been for the last 6 months or so. Yeah, both to put it mildly to events from three this year have gone to a final stage showdown and on Sunday we had a hell of a final stage showdown between and Callie Robin perea. The rally itself looked as though rob and Perry had this sewn up he'd led by more than a minute million a minute and a half on Saturday morning had a 31 second lead on Sunday morning having lost almost a minute to a puncture on Saturday, but on Sunday it all got turned on its head. Thanks to some sudden down bore shower that on the penultimate stage and Paul Kelly had the wrong ties for that. I lost his lead to oit tanak and then we had a final stage showdown. Let's review a tweet you sent on Sunday morning when Robin perra looked like it had it all under control, which said soft tyre gamble hasn't paid off for Tanaka on stage 17 Robin perra on Pirelli's extends his lead to 31.1 seconds with just three stages to go. The flying Finn will take the win unless there is a twist in the tail and you had no idea when you tweeted that, but holy moly would there be a twist in the tail. In fact, I think we did a, I think we did a Twitter poll. Sunday morning, who will win rally Croatia and this will be one that's our rally fans might have got a little bit wrong. So there we go. I'll just mention that. Tanak took 57% and Robin Perry took 43% of the fan vote of who would win. So there you go. We get it wrong, but the fans get it wrong as well. Yeah, absolutely. I mean, no one really could have predicted what would happen in just those final three stages. So yeah, as we said by stage 17 of 20, rather than Perez got a 31 second lead over tanak and you thinking, yep, home and dry. This is simple. But then on stage 18, tanakh gets a clause a little bit of that time back, so it's like 28 seconds the lead for Rothenberg going into the stage and then the heavens opened. Toyota didn't actually have the information that it was going to ride. They believed that it was just going to be cloudy and the Rhine wouldn't come down. Whereas Hyundai, tan X team, their weather band got its spot on. He absolutely knew it was going to rain, so they took the soft tyres rather than the hard tyres that rob perri took and the softs are much better in the wet. Talent had a huge advantage going into this absolute sopping wet stage. Where he got, he took, well, he reclaimed all of that deficit to Robin Perry and had a 1.4 second lead going into the final stage where Paul calley just looked crestfallen because he'd done everything like he dominated the rally and then just saw it all just evaporate on one stage and left him with one stage to fight back. It was just, you had to feel for him, but ultimately a wrong title was his doubtful there. But the team obviously didn't have the info. So we had this absolute grandstand finish set up where we had a final power stage, obviously live on television, so a big crowd there that in fact reports of Frederick 50,000 fans across the weekend for rally cry, so they really seemed to pack the stages. They loved it. And they got a great finish. So heading into that final stage, the bizarrely the rides were absolutely bone dry in the sun had come out after that rain on the previous stage, but there was a lot of mud on the roads which meant that Cali's tyres were not the rubber you needed for that stage and it had the advantage. So to do what Cali did, which was as he said, a full scent, which is written on his crash helmet. And he absolutely launched into this stage. I've never seen any quite like this. It was just full maximum attack full like Colin McRae style and it was just ragged, but he managed to pull the gap and win the rally by 4.3 seconds, which was just left everyone stunned. Nobody thought he could do this. And I think that this is the moment where we've realized we've got a real superstar in our hands in WRC at the moment. So after a podium ceremony and was wearing a golden tie, which you hear Tom reference in this Tom caught up with Callie afterwards, just very quickly for some initial reaction here's what he said. Congratulations.

"How did you find that? Yeah, especially with thank you very much for taking me down on that. It was quite something I know. It's cliche, but it was palpable. There was a sense that it wasn't there. There was a chair when the Ferraris came. I think something that's appreciated is obviously Formula One can be accused of being a bit sterile, and that plus the championship I've been covering and doing grids on for the last 18 months is formula E so I forgot basically there's a lot of noise and it smells it smells like I told you this the other day. I was like, it's a smell. I just can't describe it. It's kind of like sweaty and oily and fueling and it's really, really weird, but you get it. Yeah, I know environmentally conscious times, but it sticks a fuel and we've got massive pirellis, so it stinks up a bit of burning rubber and it's grayer or adds to it. So yeah, it was a really, really special experience. And I think I'll have to quit the job when one day, if I'm not, if I'm not super excited by God, there's John a lady. There's Jacques Villeneuve talking to Felipe Massa. Oh, is that interesting Fittipaldi if that ever wears off or go, but you know, to see all those guys on the grid was pretty mega. And you get to do it all again tomorrow, Matt. Thank you very much for joining me on the podcast. As promised, thought I will finish with the anecdote about your wonderful rally scores last night. We're about to leave the car park. Now the overnight rain at imola going into essay obviously affected the on track running, particularly in FP one. But it also meant the car park, which is literally a field. It became a bit of a bit slushy very muddy and a lot of people had a lot of trouble getting out last night, tractors were needed to pull people out, including one of our colleagues. One of our colleagues got stuck. Another one of our colleagues saw him stuck, decided to slow his car down and laugh, and he himself got stuck. That was a bit of shadow and Freud are there. Q being ever the enthusiastic driver. I think that's a good apply way to put it. Cars have a rev limit, so you should use all the revs within that limit. And you absolutely did that and you went, I'm going for it. Absolutely gunned it. Colin McRae would have been very, very proud, I'm sure, ran his way right through the mud. Got out to applause from a group of Red Bull personnel, which was very, very nice to see, and yeah, then we got our way back to Bologna, which is what we are about to go and do now. I'm sure there's some pizza waiting for us. Thank you very much for listening. Obviously, we'll be back tomorrow with the Sunday Night full race review of the Emilia romagna Grand Prix and we will see you then..

"You know who's going to buy the escalator? I think it's going to be bought by a lot of racing drivers who cover their own vehicles. Yeah. Yeah, yeah, yeah. I could see that. Because if you're rolling into the paddock and you need something to scale and size to tell you about your power boat or your race car or something and you're doing it yourself, and a lot of people just enjoy doing it themselves. Yeah. Then this would be a cool thing to turn up in the paddock in. Yeah, it would be. And you know it'd be beautiful inside and comfortable and it'd be great. So I can see that. What's going on? What's going on in your world? Another thing that excited me over the weekend that I just never catches on in the U.S. but I was watching the Monte Carlo rally and there's a guy called Sebastian Loeb, which hopefully people listening to this will know. I went on the acropolis for rally when I was like 22 and starting out in this world. And the EU is about three years older than I am. And he was this really young French king Carlos Sainz and Colin McRae were driving for Sichuan in the world rally championship. And they were both unlike multi-million dollar contracts and superheroes in this little French guy who barely spoke any English at that time, turned up and was just mighty. And they couldn't get over how fast this kid was. And here we are like 2020 something years on. He's 40, 8, next month. He just finished second in the Dakar. He could fly straight from the duck car to a test of a brand new rally car, which was a puma, which is Ford's little SUV in Europe. It's a puma hybrid. He turns up in the north of England to test this thing. Tens have been Monte Carlo. Takes on Sebastian ogier. I think he's an 8 time world champion. Loves a 9 time world champion, and at 48 years old beats him. I did get the two of them who've got 8 and 9 world championships each. Then they were taken on all the young guns and were just in a different league and it was just it was a bit like the Verstappen Hamilton in Formula One, the two of them just kind of took each other to another level. And it was just an incredible story. And what made it even better is that sebs now won 79 world rallies. He also finished second at Le Mans for Persia in a prototype. All sorts of stuff is extremely all sorts of things. He turns up, it a normal co driver isn't co drive for anymore. So he turned it with a 50 year old lady who had been he had done some testing with him over the years. She's a part time math teacher. Yeah, I was gonna say she's a teacher. Yeah, this is a teacher. She's 50 years old. He's 47, nearly 48. They get in the car. They dust everybody. They win the Monte Carlo rally, and it's just such an amazing story. And if you look the so much onboard footage from, you know, if you go across Twitter or any social media. And I know rallying doesn't really do it over here in the same way. I know Ken block came over and made a bit of a bit of buzz around it, but it's just extraordinary to see. And this guy must be right up there when you talk about the best ride drivers actually the best drivers. I mean, he was mighty at Le Mans. He's been mighty in everything he's done. Finished second on the dark car, flight the UK when the flight to France win the Monte Carlo rally go home. It's just fantastic. Yeah, it was an exciting weekend. I saw all the news and the buzz around. It certainly through Ford and the brands in the sponsors that were pushing it. But yeah, I saw some of the in car footage and always just blows my mind when you see some of that in car rally stuff. And you see this guy just haul an ass sawing out the wheel and someone's just sitting there reading a book next I'm going, yeah, you're gonna turn here, you're gonna turn there. They never even look up and see what's going on. I stare at my phone when someone's driving a car for a few minutes and I start to get sick looking at my phone. I can't imagine drive it like bad out of hell. It just read to map the whole time and talk it to somebody on my head to go and yeah you're gonna turn up here and you're gonna turn it up there and then some of the clips some of the carnage you see that there were showing just someone goes, they make it, they're flying through the air. They hit the turf. They go straight. Somebody just misses and they lawn dart off the side. Then they always cut to the in car footage. Here, they got going, oh shit. You're like, my gosh. There was a mighty crush with one of the pumas over the weekend. I think that's also on social way. He literally just powered off down a ravine. I've been on those Monte Carlo rally Rhodes. It's like, you know, it's like going at the canyons near LA, a lot of time there are no barriers or even if there are Barry as you go over the top. And then they send cartwheel down the cliff and yeah, and then the next thing you see is catalyst guy going out backside first and you're either okay or you're not right. I did I did a rally many years ago and there's a British co driver in the fortune got killed a couple a few rallies later and the treat where you hit a tree and you know it's still it's amazing what they walk away from, but it's still a dangerous sport, but yeah, I mean extraordinary skill, incredible stuff. Yeah, it's the whole thing is kind of nuts, but it was kind of exciting to see and congratulations to them for winning. There's a lady to go back to teaching at this point or she gets some kind of bonus maybe. I heard that maybe AC back in the classroom on Monday. And what I like about lobby actually both, but certainly about Sebastian is he looks 48. You know you get, you know you get these like Bill, obviously who don't look. And the guy looks 48. Look at the pictures of him, you know, he's got these kind of like weather beaten face, he looks, he looks a bit, but he was like a championship gymnastic gymnast at his teams. It is teens, so his signature is doing a back flip like a standing back on the podium. He was still able to do that at 48 as well. So he's like, it's like, I don't really like hero worship people, but he's pretty much up there in terms of yeah, you know, just in terms of skill sets, amazing. Yeah, by the way, I like that shirt you got on there, Bill. I knew you were gonna say. Big man's wearing his Provo sure. Make sure we get some screenshots of that at some point. Is this an alcoholic beverage that you might have something to do with? Yeah, it might be. Tell us a little bit. I guess we got to get into the EV part of the discussion at some point, so why don't we just touch on that for a minute? Tell us a little bit about the Hyundai. Because you guys got your hands on, is the ionic. The ionic 5? Yeah, the ionic 5, which is looks like something out of the 80s. It's also it's a cool looking car, sister car to the Kia EV 6. Yeah, we've been really impressed with it. It starts to cut the car we had was like a fully loaded dual motor all wheel drive thing, which was like 56 grand, but actually that's not really, I think where the sweet spot is, the sweet spot.

"Don't really want to be in cost things very much because it was. Somebody's trusting and counting on the country. Think about it much because I know that probably been what I can do is try to do my best to achieve results, but myself because it's over there. So when you get off the phone to him, that was a bit of a politician's answer he gave. He knows he knows the game, a bit of a non answer, which is yeah, it's nice, but hey, we'll see. Almost a racing drivers have kind of got that answer non answer. Do you reckon he really knows though he's got he's got a good opportunity. I think he's being clever there because he doesn't want to put any extra pressure on himself and let's be honest he's still very young. He doesn't need to have that extra pressure on there. So he's very being very clever there, but there's no doubting the talent that this kid has, because he got his first two rally wins last year for the first time in Estonia and then he obliterated the field in acropolis, which is not a place you go and do are certainly on your debut at that event as well. So this reason why arie flatten and said that because the guy is going to be a superstar. There's no question about it. He will be I'm sure he'll be a world champion at some point. And he's got plenty of years in the bank to still be the youngest because Colin McRae did it when he was 27 and so Callie's got a lot of time to do it. For me, he could well be, he could well be the championship. There's no question why couldn't if the car is good, he does exactly what he's done last season and built on that. He's going to be a formidable person to beat. And then you also spoke to and put to him. That perhaps last year was frustrating, but also this year could be wiping the slate clean and here's what he had to say. The performance side and the car improved, but we just didn't manage to put the package together, but now we have the blank page. So we have a good chance to work through everything and.

"Sort of investment in with toyota but toyota developed a vehicle. They put it all together. Subaru came in through their badges on it. And that's the difference and that is just sad like subaru. You're better than this. We know you are. I know the world's going to vis-. I know that that's the future but you can do better than just being a toyota with different badges. It's just pressing. Well i i mean it makes me question. What subaru has going on with their engineering teams. I mean electrification has been in the auto industry for a long time now and this is the first anything. We've really seen from subaru. And it's just toyota. So i mean we know. Toyota has a stake in subaru. Yup about eighty twenty three percent these days. I believe i mean. Are we getting close to a point. Where toyota's subaru completely. I mean i've been saying this for years. I think you're set me up for this. I think within ten years. Subaru is owned by toyota. Mazda is owned by honda. That that's purely my prediction. But i just think that subaru mazda particularly they're big enough to remain on their own for now but they can't remain independent for long and that's the world we live in and i think there's just going to be this consolidation and they're both gonna get swallowed up. I don't know. I mean it's super who has a has a pretty lengthy history so it was noda and i haven't been watching subaru. Sales figures like a hawk but to the best of my knowledge. They're not they're not doing terribly. Bhai there on the twentieth day dipped a little bit. But everybody everybody. They're they're fine ish. It's just that i mean why. Why are they i mean. Why are we seeing more from subaru in terms of of investments in new tech. I mean that's the question that nobody can answer except the folks at subaru. What we've been seeing from the new. Wrx that looks practically like the one that exists now that it just has shades of corolla. If i'm honest bit it just feels like that. You know i don't know this. It just feels like from covering this industry that something is happening within toy or within the subaru that they're just positioning themselves to be like. Hey toyota or ready. Swallow us up. Were ready to you know so you so. Toyota is a coach builder for bmw now. Subaru is taking. suv's from toyota. I feel like this is a movie of the week. I feel like we could. We could really write something juicy about this and get a get a big movie deal. This is invasion of the body snatchers. Basically it could be. I don't know. I'm going to give subaru the benefit of the doubt. Because you're talking about a teaser. At this point there's there's still more the images they're identical like. That's the thing that you know mommy. The next subaru ea is different. Maybe whatever it's just the fact that we are seeing like the forest or wilderness doesn't come with a turbo. That's a minor thing. Okay whatever that the next wrx basically looks like the current wrx. That the subarus. I e v that it's essentially a rebadged toyota. It's just these confluence of things that makes me feel like it makes me worry about the future of subaru not next year but more like eight to ten years down the line. Yeah it'll be an interesting time for sure folks. what do you think email us. Podcast motor one dot. Com is super lost. Should we be concerned about subaru. Or maybe this is just an experiment where people by electric subaru's instead of investing into their own. The oldest rebadged toyota see people bite. I dunno podcasts. Dot com will. It's i don't know. I don't really have an opinion on it i. I haven't been super interested in subaru since a well. Since i had my hopes and dreams crushed when i bought a very rusty ninety one legacy turbo that i had dreams of recreating colin mcrae's epic rally car only to find that i couldn't even take both underneath because it was. I mean it was literally that rusty and my hopes and dreams were dashed subaru. We love you but yeah where the bassett subarus and bad times and subaru's but still kinda like them so it is what it is. It is what it is. Podcast motor dot com. Just send us your emails like you didn't do last week but we do have some. We do have some comments.
