    lets keep this one and if it gets a 1000 responses when the championship starts we can have a forum.
    I made a suggestion for additional sub forums in December 2012:

    I know Ramona Karlsson is trying to find sponsors for a season in RallyX but IMO I don't think she'll find
    enough sponsors to secure a seat for the World Championship so I think She'll have to settle for national series
    or possible Euro RX championship.

    In Sweden everything involving 4 wheels and an engine is regarded as a threat to the polar bears. She will get nothing...

    Thanks for that. I was just surprised that they turned the i20 Supercar around so quickly. The cars are fairly tightly-packaged, so I was curious as to the scope for development.

    I was thinking NASCAR / GT racing / Dakar etc has a sub folder and it would be better for those who want to follow RX have their own sub forum, those like NOT wont then have to have their forum clogged up by has beens, ladyboy, village events type comments.
    My own opinion is the jury is still out, but RX with the right promotion and tv and internet media could truimph over traditional rallying in attracting the new generation and sponsors, I have been told that Jost Capito is taking an interest for VW after WRC. Now if you look back at the VW way of doing things they utterly dominate then leave, look at what they did in Dakar, is their WRC presnece going to be the same? And for those who dont know it VW is providing a lot of the behind the scenes infrastructure and funding for WRC, look at the organisers cars, posters. I hear even the radio receives a subsidy :-)

    @MJW

    Hopefully VW sticks around for a while in WRC. Or before they leave 2-3 new manufacturers arrive and we have a good old battle royale between manufacturers. Maybe the future comes from China?

    As for World RX: if it really catches on (which I for one know it did last year here in SWE - got sort of a breath of fresh air and new life) then the manufacturers like VW will go there.

    I'm optimistic about it!

    PS We're on our way to 1000 posts...

    Well that's a bombshell.

    What former WRC/IRC drivers could be heading for RX?

    In french mag' Auto Hebdo, Andersson said he was looking for Rallycross World Championship seat.

    I think Sandell is doing it too, but in USA.
