    I also heard this news. I have read an interview with Carmen Poenaru on a motorsport site, ex Marisca co-driver. She said she would do 4 rallies with Casuneanu in Skoda R5. The first rally would be Sardinia...but for moment everything is a rumors

    I just watched the one hour Monte Carlo review on BT Sport.. no mention of WRC2 at all. Great value for the manufacturers and sponsors in WRC2

    Not sure why they can't even do a 5mins review in that 1hour coverage. Then do a separate 30mins/ even an hour review of wrc2 on wrc+. That would be great.

    They've got better drivers and better teams than the ERC nowadays, so should make the most of it with extra coverage of the R5s.

    I suppose they're just ignorant enough to think that people don't care. I think in truth even for people who just happen to watch and haven't caught the rally fever yet it would add another intersting facet to know there are multiple classes and seeing where the talents come from. You could even add a little bit of JWRC whenever they're present.

    In Moto GP they always show the lower tier races as well. I'm not crazy about Motorbike races but when I happen to tune in, I usually watch the lot.

    Usually people around WRC (media, organisers, promoter) prefers WRC cars and factory teams. Other competitors are there mainly to bring money through entry fee...

    Still they could provide some manus into lower class like Skoda. Opel could easily be there with their R2 Adam.. And let's face it it's quite boring (even for the Skoda drivers) if they compete only to ourselves. M-Sport do good for couple of stages then they are out. Others are way back. That's not called competion but a joke.

    RC2 in Sweden

    We have 28 cars, where 27 are R5s, and 4 Mirages that are R5 (NonHom)


    RC2: https://www.ewrc-results.com/entries...2018/?cat=1018
    NAT4: https://www.ewrc-results.com/entries...2018/?cat=4742

    Many top pairs are on the startline.
    Tidemand, Veiby, Huttunen, Abbring and ┼hlin are maybe those on paper that springs to mind.

    But many interesting outsiders: Adielsson, very good R2 driver, maybe this will be 4wd breakthrough?
    Johann Kristofferson, multitalented driver ala Ekstr°m.
    Nikara, fast as a blitz, but some times too fast...
    Scandola is fast, but on Asfalt. Not sure on the white stuff
    Fellow italian Tamara Molinaro are there to learn.

    Will the Mirages be able to match the other R5s, or way off?
    Will some of the RC2 cars take overall points this time?

    I hope the RC2 cars for once get their deserved focus by wrc live, and other media!!
