    0, as rally doesn't even exist in Korea

    Only a limited programme in an R2 Adam - https://www.ewrc-results.com/profile/129279-chewon-lim/

    I think I read he came from a circuit race background?

So there is no reason to reproach anyone...
    Paddon was also good PR for Hyundai 'Down Under'...

    I suspect Paddon's style is Latvala esc coming from similar smooth flowing gravel road backgrounds and hence would go well in the Toyota. So the Hyundai is not set up for much left foot breaking?

    Neuville is straight out of the French school, like Ogier and Loeb before him, keep the car as straight as possible. Paddon likes to go sideways and aggressive, like every other great rally driver who hasn't won a championship in the last 15 years.

    They're all fantastic young drivers and hopefuly most of them will achieve great things on a near future. Btw, if Rovanpera wins that could be he won't drive for MSport?
