    I think the Hyundai program winner was meant to contest in WRC2 in 2018. Rovanperä will be 17 until October 2018 and cannot take part in most European WRC rallies. Therefore the M-Sport deal and BRC would be better suited for him, with some bonus WRC2 events that he is allowed to take part in (Wales 2017, Mexico, Argentina, anything after October 2018).

    Yes, but I don't see much interest for him to do that competition wise. Maybe one winter and one summer event to keep the skills up for WRC Sweden and Finland 2019.

    I thought there was a some sort of age limit for taking part in WRC events but if he can do Rally Finland then great.

    Now Autosport knows that Greensmith, Cave and Ingram are selected, with 14 non-brits. https://www.motorsport-news.co.uk/ne...ai-wrc-scheme/
