PIC OF THE WEEK: LATVALA CLEARED FOR TAKEOFF
Jari-Matti Latvala earns his wings on last weekend's Rally Mexico
If you’re a regular reader, you’ll recognise it from our WRC report at the start of the week. Can you blame us for posting it for a second time, though? Even the most hardened of modern WRC sceptics can still enjoy the sight of Jari-Matti Latvala’s Polo R WRC getting quite considerably airborne here, with a good couple of metres of clear air between him and the deck at least. Latvala's team-mate Ogier went on to take overall victory at Rally Mexico, giving him a 74-point tally in the driver’s championship and leaving him way out ahead of his nearest championship rival, Mikko Hirvonen.
OK, so modern rallying might not be as gripping as it once was, and British TV coverage has dwindled to a point where it’s virtually non-existent – but this picture does at least show there’s still some spectacle left in the WRC!
