    Wrc2 2017

    New year, new championship new thread.

    How will WRC2 2017 shape up?

    So far we know that Tidemand and Kopecky will participate with Skoda.
    Also Fuchs will participate.

    Still waiting news from Suninen.

    Some insights from Italy: Andolfi is trying to build a program in WRC2 but we don't know much more at the moment.
    Orange also said that participating wrc2 with Fiestar5 from BRC is one of their goal. I guess with Campedelli but you never know.

    Don't know much from other countries. Let's hear from you guys.

    Tempestini will contest with a DS3 R5 I think, winner of JWRC this year.

    That's nothing more than wishing Toyota bad luck...

    wrong! i belive that the factor DRIVER is so much more important than the factor MACHINE

    Mikkelsen is a first class driver (the only one who beat ogier with equal conditions in equal car) in a second class car.....on the other hand we have second class drivers such as Lappi, Suninen, Breen and Lefebvre in first class car...skoda R5 is the best car in its class, it is fast an reliable AND especially in Monte and at gravel rallyes Mikkelsen may have an advantage in starting position...nobody knows how fast the toyotas will be, but it is sure they are not as reliable as the Skoda, so....everything is possible and my fingers are crossed for Andreas Mikkelsen...i wish nobody bad luck!

    Estonian Egon Kaur is hoping to contest on 4-5 events.
