    Maybe that could attract new names?

    OR... maybe thats part of that "OH FORD SHOULD GO BACK TO WRC"... (it'd be pointless to be with Block, I know.. but maybe thats the money to keep Seb.. who knows)
    Hey, that would be a dream. Save a few $$$ in WorldRX and give Malcolm some extra WRC funding.

    But, in a weird way, no Ford in WorldRX is less money for Malcolm, seen as M-Sport developed the Focus RX car.

    Some isntagram-twitter-facebook confusing comments asking Block if the deal with Ford is done and suggesting he should go back to Subaru! haha That'd be out of nowhere! They have such a great relashionsip. I dont believe Ford would dump Block

    Hmmm I think GRC could have an electric series next year, maybe.. But WorldRX was talking about 2020 or something. But maybe Manufacturers are always looking 2 or 3 years ahead. Whats the point of building new cars if the others are investing on the electric rx cars... idk if that is the case, but it could be. Im excited about the electric RX... but daaaaaaaaaaaaaaammmn booooy Im gonna miss that sound

    Speaking about Papa Hansen, does he developing his Citroens with support from Citroen Sport..? He could developing C3 RX

    Looks like we'll not see Focus RX & the new Fiesta RX, unless there are any interest from ERX participants..

    That's my hope, and it would probably finally settle the ARA/Rally America schism if Ford could be persuaded to join Subaru of America in the ARA. A prepared Focus RS would probably match up well against the Impreza and still be cheaper than world rally-cross.

    Wonder how Ford's announcement will effect ticket sales for the god awfully named "Speedmachine festival" at Silverstone next year? Seeing as they have built it as a yoof centric event the absence of the Blockster will be a kick in the goolies. Guess they will be trying to get him there in some other capacity.

    I hope that it causes a huge hit to the attendance...but I suspect that they'll end up with more than Lydden despite losing a lot of existing fans and people travelling from Europe.

    I hate the idea of Speedmachine, in particular because they were selling stupidly expensive earlybird tickets without announcing any of the 'big name' musicians. Also, given the 'big name' musicians that they pull in for the Silverstone Classic, I'm not sure who's going to be that interested in playing there anyway.
    You're so beige, you probably think this signature is about someone else.
