    No Neubauer, no Baumschlager; will Baumschlager drive 2018 season?

    I understand from this that Baumschlager will drive only selected events in 2018, also some international ones http://rajdy.autoklub.pl/news/baumsc...i-tytulu,81614

    He will be very busy with renting cars and development testing. Also Škoda is not interested in ÖRM anymore (due to WRC cars being allowed) so that he would have to continue with the expensive Polo WRC.

    WHY???

    there are NO foreign driver, yes...but who is responsible for that? Nobody!

    there is no Baumschlager and no Neubauer....YES...both decided to go to "pause" modus, both will be back during the year

    BUT it is a "normal" austrian championship round, it is an very expensive Rallye

    BUT there is the same ammount of entry´s like in last glory ERC year (2015)

    BUT after a year like 2017 it was clear that 2018 will be a step back for ÖRM in 2018

    BUT one thing is for sure, ÖRM is completly unpredictable...compared to Cz Championship ...the champion 2018 is already known since 2 weeks

    IF there wil be snow (and it looks ok at the moment) Jänner Rallye will be a great race to watch as always, i am looking forward

    I don't blame anyone for anything but for me personally the simple facts You named mean disappointment - no Bumschlager, no Neubauer, no foreign drivers.

    I must say that I am disappointed too. Two best local drivers are missing + surprisingly nobody fast from abroad. Despite I know that some of them was thinking about the start. And most of them failed for the same reasons like usually - rally is too early after Christmas/New Year...

    The amount of cars is ok, but the quality is indeed very poor. Some foreign R5 drivers was sure to expect, thats quite dissapointing.

    Although a nice winter scenario could still make a spectacular rally, but at the moment it doesnt look like that - a pitty.

    Neubauer said after Rally Waldviertel, that he doesn´t go for Austrian title anymore and plans to do some international events - basically the same as Baumschlager. Neubauer´s Fiesta WRC is for sale.
    Grössing starts with his Evo IX - which could have been a good decision in regard of costs (215 km of special stages!), if there would be snow covered roads, but it doesn´t look like this for now.

    So maybe 2018 could mark the beginning of the end of WRC cars in Austria - even if they´re still allowed. I think Baumschlager will take another try in 2019 when Polo R5 is homologated.

    EDIT: Fiesta WRC of Neubauer is obviously sold: https://www.rallye-magazin.de/int/ar...mann-neubauer/
