    It's a concern I must say. I can't speak directly about our past Toyota deal but there was factory backing there in 2016 and available again in 2017 but sadly no crews wanted to play in r3.

    The series has concentrated way way too much on the R5 class and R2 juniors, with pretty much all prize money and coverage going there. In fairness it seems from what I'm seeing in the 2018 guide feedback has been listened too and a more even spread of prize structure is coming.

    R3 is not so interesting anymore. Here in Belgium also.

    Not sure if this has been previously confirmed or not but he'll be M-Sport's guy in the BRC according to MN today. He's also doing the full BTRDA series too which is a pleasant surprise.

    I think this year it will be easier for Edwards in BRC.

    Great that M Sport are backing a Brit but already looking like a lower key presence for them this year. If Rhys Yates or Alex Laffey are the other supported driver then we have problems. Hoping for another "works" entry like a Hyundai or PSA UK supported car but think its unlikely...

    This may be the best we can get in terms of new cars... Proton Iriz R5.
