    Brynildsen in Fiesta DMACK sounds good. Pity DMACK exists

    Nordic names from last tens editions of Barum. Not that bad I would say Hänninen, Mikkelsen, Huttunen, Lappi, Nikara, P-G Andersson, Gardemeister, Sandell, Alén, Joge, Adielsson, Madsen, Bergkvist, Kristiansen, Flodin, Furuseth, Jonsson, Knudsen, Gustafsson,

    Surely Brynildsen is far more likely to do the British Championship than the ERC? He did the Pirelli International in Kielder this year (with no luck) and Rally GB, they were his only two rallies outside of Scandinavia in the last two years. I'd presumed they were a toe in the water before a possible full campaign? ERC doesn't really seem to suit his recent experience and the ERC is surely an expensive way to learn tarmac rallies? Yeah okay if Dmack are paying fair enough, but I can't see that he's the most suitable candidate for an ERC campaign available to them.

    Exactly. None of them was competing in full ERC.

    Most of them did IRC before IRC and ERC was merged so while You're technically correct it's not reflecting the reality in my opinion.

    Bergkvist is JERC winner so that he was ERC regular. Adielsson was JERC regular. Kristiansen was sort of semi-regular. He did 4 ERC events in 2014 and at least 2 in 2015 and 2016.

    Mikkelsen, Nikara, P-G, Gardemeister, Sandell, Alén, Joge, Flodin were IRC regulars in at least one full season.

    That's a fact, that WRC>ERC, but they talked about running ERC team with R5 machines, so alternative is WRC2, from this point of view WRC+ERC campaign is better than WRC+WRC2, in therms of different rallies, and possibilities to be on podium overall in more amount of rallies.

    We had a 2 car DMACK team in the BRC in 2016 as you all know. With Dick saying they have been ignoring their customer base by concentrating on the WRC then a 2 car team in the ERC would tick a lot of those boxes for countries that dont have a WRC round at present. Wouldn't be at all surprised to see a Nordic/UK or Irish driver combo in 2018.

    Efrén Llarena will probably do ERC Junior U27 as a prize for winning the spanish Beca R2.
