Miguel Campos after he has left from Peugeot he has built his own team whose name is MIC . This season he wasn't very happy with Subaru performance, he has complained about lack of power of this car. At the moment he don't reveal his plans but it's possible he could change the car.

About Portugal championship...
I thought Antonio Rodrigues who tested the Toyota Corolla S2000 would also run with it next year
About Bruno Magalhaes, do you know if he will also run the portuguese event of ERC(Rali Vinho da Madeira, I think) and the portuguese event of WRC07 ???

Of course, he will take part in both rallys with Peugeot 207 S2000, because the main target of the team is the Portuguese Championship.

In France, Nicolas Vouilloz, 2006 french tarmac rallies champion in the BSA whale, is interesting by driving a 207 S2000 also but no idea if that would be in France or IRC, and has still to find budget

Egon has no 4wd experience yet, but he's reigning rally champion in class N3+A6 (Estonian N2 + A5), 2wd rallysprint champion and 2005 rallycross champion here.
If I was a co-driver, I could not choose between them, they both are very promising.egonkaur.com

According to the latest rumour(from Echappement Magazine) both Michel Enjolras Sport(MES) and Pavérani Competition could be the next preparators of the 207 S2000...
Another rumour, Eric Mauffrey,overall winner of the Michelin Trophy in the french tarmac championship this year, is also very interested in the 207 S2000 for next year and will sell his current Subaru Impreza GrA...

Barborka Rally was won by Leszek Kuzaj in his prototype Subaru Impreza. Second came Tomasz Kuchar (Subaru Impreza) and third Pawel Dytko (Mitsubishi Lancer). Paolo Andreucci didn't finish the rally, as he lost a wheel on the last stage.
Next year the new driver of FIAT Poland will be Maciej Lubiak. He will drive Fiat Punto S2000. This year he was driving Mitsubishi Lancer
and finished in 4th place in the Polish championship.
Other drivers that are interested in driving S2000 cars are Grzegorz Grzyb and Michal Solowow.
