“WRC 7 is out now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Microsoft Windows. I’ve had a few weeks with the game and I'm just getting the hang of it. Of the new crop of racers I’ve played recently, this one took the longest to get proficient in. But was it worth it? Yes, I think so.
A difference in strategy and priorities with Miller prompted Henry Ford II in 1968 to abruptly name a new president, William "Bunkie" Knudsen, who had just been passed over for the president's post at General Motors. Miller became vice chairman of Ford -- a new post created for him -- and dean at Stanford. He left Ford's management ranks a year later but stayed on the company's board until 1986.
The first thing you notice about motor homes, apart from their ginormous exterior size, is that they all seem to have aftermarket audio systems controlled by near-microscopic buttons.

Lohscheller said Opel will enter more than 20 new markets by 2022, with Argentina, Saudi Arabia and Taiwan among countries identified as potential export markets. Opel also is exploring whether to sell cars in China and Brazil, he said.
It’s easy to drive, too. So far, I’ve discovered the best thing to do is to sit there and try to work out what methods of propulsion the PHEV’s using. There is a handy energy flow display on the screen that shows you just that and, as with all similar cars, the object soon becomes seeing how long you can keep the car going on full electric drive around town before the engine cuts in. I dare say there’ll be a lot more on that in future reports.
