Yeah welcome Andrew! Its really nice to get you down here my old team member . Anyway looking forward to see you down here on the boards and I wish you have a lot of fun! Its a really long time once again when we havent talked anything as I had a long army season.
Hi everyone! Wow, thanks for the welcome. It is small things like this that set a good forum apart from 'just' a forum.
Mixa - is that you Mikko Jalonen, from the old wrc.com forums, and the Ford Rally Team in the WRC championship? If so, wow!!!
For everyone, my name is Andrew, I have now completed a PhD, so I am legitimately a Doctor. I have been a rally fan since 98 when I first saw an old Australian Rallysport News with the cover showing Carlos' Corolla jumping over a bridge on the Rally New Zealand. Since then, Carlos and the Corolla have become my favourite pairing!
I collect 1:43 and 1:18 diecast rally cars (like Tumbo), although recently I have tailed off and simpley collected Skyline GT-R and Toyota F1 diecasts (I followed them from the WRC to Le Mans to F1).
I have spectated and marshalled at the Subaru Safari Rally (Tasmanian round of the ARC), and have spectated and marshalled for Targa Tasmania.
I also have a decent collection of rally games for the PSone and PS2, but I warn everyone to stay away from Tommi Makinen Rally. It is possibly the worst rally game ever devised.
Apart from that, I don't know what else to say, except thanks for having me, and thanks for offering such a warm welcome!
