    The meaning of the press release in Czech language is different. It clearly says same number of events per season. It explicitly states that both will have same chances for the title.

    Anyway...

    It can be a works team entry. No problem with that. Only the car must be physically run by someone else. This year Škoda already used Kresta Racing or Wevers Sport services while the cars were in...

    Škoda works team don't have the capacity to run four cars at the same time. One or two cars would have to be run by some other team. Anyway I'm quite sure there won't be four in Finland.

    No problem with that. Škoda skips Příbram regularly. That's the only event where other drivers win (Dohnal in last two years).

    I expect Jan to do Germany and Catalunya. He has very good chances to win there. However all of the other events are not strong at all for him.

    So now Pontus 3x 1st, 1x 2nd from 4 start. Jan 3x 1st from 3 starts. The only one who managed to take a victory from these two was Katsuta in Sweden.

    This is a double-edged sword. I can give You really a lot of examples where WRC2 (or even WRC) drivers failed against ERC ones - Barum regularly, Ypres regularly, this year's Canarias etc. There are...

    I ma quite sure that they don't pay everything from their own budget, especially in case of Gill I expect him to have his own budget from Indian sponsors.

    But otherwise for sure they have now...

    I always had a feeling that nobody from European drivers wants to do the APRC but for marketing purposes somebody has to - hence it's always someone new to drive it alongside Gaurav Gill.

    Kalle is now works driver which means he will have plenty of tests and lessons to take. Generally speaking in last ten years Škoda has been very good in development of young drivers. Let's see where...

    Sometimes it's possible to get an exception. For example here in CZ it's 18 limit but some drivers started on Barum at the age of 17 (Klausz, Kruuda at least).

    To prove You have talent You can do JERC. It's cheaper than any 4WD car and it actually works as a good competition and a functional ladder up.

    ERC2 with gr.N car is also cheap to do. Likely...

    As RS wrote. You shall go after IRC/ERC. ERC before the merge with IRC was pretty much dead and after the merge it was basically rebranded IRC.
