    We all know how that went for VAG.
    Relax. VW was fu..ed big time just in the US and PSA don't sell cars there. No european government will undermine a european manufacturer. Besides, there’s a general perception that all manus were somehow involved in cheating emissions schemes…

    All Manufacturers have challenges with high performance diesel engines and pollution. Pure physics!

    Yes and no. The basic principle is true, higher combustion temperatures = more NOX. However, there is no real reason that AdBlue tanks need to be (fixed) small size and refilled over 20k km or so. Using more you could drop the emissions down, so it's partly manufacturers own choice to be close (or above) the limits.

    Anyway as a last point on this off-topic subject I totally agree with Rally Power. VW got hurt because of US. European regulators barely give a warning to own manufacturers.

    Besides Rovanpera, there’s another teen trying to get into WRC2 next year. Marco Bulacia, the 16yo Bolivian champ, was at Skoda and is planning to visit other teams during the next monthes. Meanwhile, he’ll continue to compete in the Italian gravel series.

    Story says that he can compete in 6 WRC2 events, I don´t think he would have much more even if he is 18y. He is still bid "wild card".
