WOw, that wasn't there even yesterday when I was trying to figure out what was going on with him this year.
I have been a fan of his every since his dead car was towed to a stop in front of of us at STPR 2004.

Best of luck Matt, you'll have some crazy canucks rooting for you!

Factual error in the press release ... The Term American can apply to anyone from north or south America ... and there certainly have been 'americans' contesting more than two events in the WRC.

No one else sees the downside of this? Any influence yeilded on the rally masses by Bling could yeild in droves of European youths saying things such as "Mint" "Uber" "True Story". The fall of the romance languages is upon us.

Best of luck Matt.

My bad, but us from the USA are commonly reffered to as American's overseas. (And Canadians, as Canadians). Mexicans certainly aren't called Americans over there, (Or Guatemalans, or Chilean's).

I think the majority of people understand that we were reffering to United States citizens and not overlooking any Canadian's previous accomplishments.

I felt American was a better choice than Yank, or United States'ian or United States Citizen.

Either way, thanks for the support guys. There will be a new bangin website by monday/tuesday with some more details and what not.

MINT!

That's how one gets paid to race. It beats hell out of sitting around complaining how you could be world champ if only all those know-nothing rich corporations would just throw a lot of money your way, so you could have fun racing some 20 year old Volvo or VW.

Good luck. Getting paid to race is hard work, and you have made that commitment. The experience alone (of racing on a broader stage) is priceless. No matter your level of success, you will become a better driver and a better team manager.

Chill out dude.
I think we all just really want to see you name on the list of competitor and follow your time in the splits. I know I am.
Hopefully we can see you out there soon, living the dream for so many of us!
