>>Any French language boards?

I checked out this forum and found a number of posts from regulars on specialstage.com. Also found an interesting rumour that Besner will have a Peugeot 206 WRC next year. IMHO, not likely. Would require big money and Besner would actually have to fit into the car :)

lol
seiously though, that seems kinda crazy to me....the car alone would be, and i'm guessing here, $300,000 US? let alone the ridiculous rate at which they must go through those exotic parts....

You know when you run that stuff through the Babel Fish Translator it almost becomes readable to those of us south of the border.

So I decide tonight to look at a couple of the Tall Pines threads to see what is being said about the start order and the rally. Well, guess what? I willing to bet that the name "Tall Pines" doesn't translate from French into English in exactly the way that the organizers would have chosen. :eek:

Kent:

Give us a hint. We are on the Canada forum now, so political correctness can be dispensed with.

Well, Babel Fish turned "Tall Pines" into "Tall Fire truck" without all the extraneous letters...

Kent:

I thought it might have treated "Pines" as an anagram and rearranged the letters in a less than appropriate manner. It would of course be accurate, since all of us north of the border, have a tall pines :)
