    4 car team apparently mate. Sordo is a very good driver to have for manufacturer points scoring as has been shown this year.

    Can they have four cars? Could it be a some sort of a private team? Maybe something that Nasser is rumored to be putting up?

    Very intrigued to see how this would work and how the points-scoring would be decided. Surely you can still only nominate three cars before each event. Then take the two best of those. Big statement from Hyundai.

    Maybe Hyundai were worried he could go to Toyota long-term and make them a stronger opponent...

    PARTICIPATION – MANUFACTURER
    A Manufacturer:
    7.2.1 Undertakes to take part in all the rallies of the Championship with a minimum of two (2) World Rally Cars complying with the 2017 Appendix J, Article 255A.
    7.2.2 Wishing to score points in the Championship must register for the Championship with the FIA no later than 16 December 2016 using a registration form available from the FIA.
    7.2.3 Will be awarded points according to Art. 5.3 of these regulations. For any one Manufacturer, a maximum of three (3) nominated drivers may be eligible to score points of which only the 2 best placed (see Art. 7.2.6) will score points according to their relative position. The third placed cars may neither score nor detract points from the other cars.
    7.2.4 Must pay the registration fee of €319,830.
    7.2.5 Must give the name of the competitor at the time of registration. This name must include the name of the car manufacturer.

    The way I see, four cars is possible, but for each event they will have to nominate three to score points. Something Hyundai did last year with two nominees in a three car team.

    Alongside its three full-time drivers, Hyundai also entered Kevin Abbring for six rallies this year, the Dutchman's best result being a seventh place in Spain.

    While Nandan expressed his desire to keep him at Hyundai, he admitted the Dutchman posed "a problem" because the team cannot enter a fourth car for him in 2017.

    As you all know (or should know) only manufacturers can enter WRC17 cars.
    M-Sport have entered 4/5 cars already, so Hyundai can do it also.
    Donīt try to say anything different.

    For Team points they can only enter 3 crews but for Rally as many they want/can.
    "quattro best 4wd rallycar ever"

    Yes we know this but I assume we are talking about the Manufacturer"s Ch'ship as that is where Hyundai's priorities lie. Having 4 cars doesnt make sense in that case as only two of three can score.
