Really Cool Special Edition LCP Magazine
My good friend Francisco Ortiz sent me this latest copy of RCM (Rally Car Mexico) and it is the best magazine article on La Carrera Panamericana I have ever seen. Granted most of it is in Spanish but there is 35 full pages and the cover filled with awesome photos and an official program.
Not only are there great articles but there are also pages and pages of photos including a section with each and every team photo of each piloto and co-piloto as well as their car. There are some awesome photos of many cars from the 2007race as well.
Additionally there is a two-page feature article about some of the La Carrera Panamericana cars that competed in last years Pikes Peak Hill Climb with a bitchin photo of Doug Mockett's Rocket headed to the moon. Something else I really enjoy about the article is it shows some of the LCP posters from prior years which I have never seen before. This truly is a collectors edition that everyone will be proud to own for years to come.
I have written RCM editors to find out how you can get your own copy and I have great news. Roberto C. Mendoza who also competed in La Carrera in the #303 Porsche just happens to be the general director for Rally Car Mexico and he has graciously offered copies free of charge to La Carrera Panamericana teams.
If you would like a copy simply drop him an email at; firstname.lastname@example.org and give them your name, address, zip code and country. It may not be required but depending upon your zip code you may need to send some postage but I assure you it's well worth it. Like one of my friends said, we sould all sign up for a years subscription. So at least ask about it when you write.
Thank you Roberto and Rally Car Mexico!
