I'm at the newstand browsing after work and I pick up the new Sport Compact Car. Blah Blah Civic Si, Blah Blah Toyota Matrix, Blah Blah Hyundai Tiburon, Blah- what was that?!?<img src=/images/forums/snitz/smile.gif width=15 height=15 border=0 align=middle>

I flip back and SCC has an article on the Ojibwe Forests Pro Rally, from my state even! And Hyundai gets some ink.<img src=/images/forums/snitz/thumbup.gif width=25 height=18 border=0 align=middle>

The article starts out:
<i>After more than 10 miles of the 10.5 mile SS8, second stage of the second leg of the Ojibwe ProRally, the top three cars were less than a second apart. Mark Lovell's Subaru finished the stage just 0.6 seconds ahead of Seamus Burke's Mitsubishi who finished only 0.6 seconds faster than the Hyundai of Paul Choiniere. Unbelievable.</i>

There is also a short article by Dave Coleman who raced and won the Production Class in a Hyundai Tiburon. Too bad Hyundai had alot of probs this year, and those are mentioned (although not maliciously). I went to the rally last year and Libra Racing/Hyundai won 1-2-3, a manufacturer first in U.S. Rally history. 2001 was the first year Hyundai didn't win that rally since the Tiburon has been in production. Here are some pics from the 2000 rally:

If I am not mistaken in that same issue they have a little blurb towards the front of the magazine about upcoming cars and such and the new GK Tiburon is shown.

scc has been covering hyundai in the rally scene in america because they are big players. they have won manufacturers title since '97 and this year tey started covering them on a regular basis. even one of their writers are driving the stock spec tib and one it at that rally because the two tibs in the bigger categories finished but with some problems but the stock spe tib won first to keep it in close race between subaru and mitsu. and it is cool that stock tib won that rally in their class and scc writer drove it. very cool tghat he did it when scc is honda bias. keep on tuning

i just want to point something out here that really impresses me about hyundai and rally in general in the US at least.... those rally cars have to remain street legal.
