    I saw this tweet from September 27

    Huttunen, el seleccionado por Hyundai, pertenece a la empresa de representación de Marcus Grönholm (GRX), junto a Niclas y Joni Wiman

    I was thinking Joni was not even alive anymore haha

    Wiman is one of three GRX drivers and has been since GRX started. That does´t mean he is Hyundai driver 2018.

    I don´t believe that Bakkerud will end to bad team or new team, he is one of Top5 drivers and will race in Top team 2018 (Audi, PSA or VW)

    Looks like DA Racing switch from Peugeot 208 to Renault Captur.. Nice one. Maybe will be in World RX too if the cars are made for superar regulations.

    Far from it, space frame, engine in the back and rear wheel steer.

    Scheider and BMW in talks
    https://www.autosport.com/wrx/news/1...d-rx-programme

    Eki hoping for a Factory Backed team

    The interesting part is that BMW is also interested in the Electric Class.

    Audi will compete in FormulaE as a factory team now and they are producing TCR cars. Now Eki is saying he needs factory support and I kinda believe Audi WILL join WRX. And its no secret VW/AUDI WANTS to race the e-RX class.

    BMW will enter FormulaE (via Andretti, in 2019) and WEC (next year - GT class) with factory support.
    THey want to make TCR cars... especially now that WTCC will run TCR machines...
    And now this RX/Scheider talk... and the e-RX thing for 2020.

    Hmmmm IDK, eh? Maybe DTM is in real danger.

    Eki says he think that S1 is great for the sport, but not for sales. Maybe they want to enter with A3/S3, TT, or Q3 (my guess)
