(and of course I am not a one eyed, disgruntled Kiwi at all!).
    What you are looking at is the WRC entry list, there will also be a National entry list due out next week. As for NZ it is highly unlikely that many of the local cars would be approved to enter a WRC. How many locals were in the APRC event in Whangarei?

    Er Not entirely true. The majority of the field are ASN class cars which are National/Regional Cars as per the FIA regs. If you look the majority of them are AP4 cars. A lot of these cars would be in the National field as well. The same would apply in New Zealand.

    #WRC Sarrazin Motorsport in charge of @HuttunenRacing program for 2018 and debuts in Sweden WRC-2 → http://bit.ly/2xiVEtl


    Announced at the end of September as the chosen Hyundai Motorsport Driver Development Program, Jari Huttunen will start his official WRC-2 2018 season with the Wrc Sweden Rally next February under the Hyundai Motorsport banner.

    However the Finn's i20R5 will be supported and prepared by Sarrazin Motorsport and the full details of its 2018 program will be revealed later. At first, it will be for the first time driving this car this weekend at the Rally Wrc Britain.

    Hyundai Motorsport official release.

    Nice choice. I think it's a win-win for everyone:

    1) Sarrazin will make experience as a team manager or similar. I don't understand if he will compete as well. In that case it's bingo
    2) Huttunen will have full support both from Hyundai and from Sarrazin's squad. Also he can get valuable advise from a very very complete driver!
    3) Hyundai will nurture a great talent with huge potential and also will develop its R5 (I guess).

    Sarrazin Motorsport was competing this year, also in WRC2. They have Skoda Fabia R5 and Hyundai i20 R5. So no problem...

    There is going to be quite a good field in the attached national round as well as the NSW and QLD State Championship fields.

    Nice, thanks for the info, I didn't know it. Anyway this is still a step forward for him. The support of a manufacturer does not come often.

    The total distance of the special stages shall be between 300 km and 500 km.
    - A minimum ratio of 25% of special stages shall be respected on the overall distance of the event.
    - There shall be no single special stage minimum or maximum distance. However, there shall be no more
    than 80 km of special stages between visits to service parks or tyre fitting zones.
    - No one stage or part of a stage may be run more than twice in a rally, super special stages excluded.
    I think the 80 km rule makes it hard to make longer rallies. If you do 80+80 on a friday, 80+80 on saturday and another 80 on sunday, you get 400 kms, plus some km's for a thursday super special. Or if you can find enough long stages close to a service park, you may have time to do three legs on a day
