    https://twitter.com/MSportLtd/status/940275499305177089 here you can see some of the contenders at the M-Sport Poland factory. There's a scene with their badges on the table, including Callum Devine, Jesse Turunen, Josh Mc???lean, Joseph Matar, Jani Luhtaniemi, Dave Holder, Rodolphe Asmar
    David Holder is from NZ - 2016 national champion in an Evo (Paddons old one). He started rallying in a Toyota Levin, then was national 2WD champ in an early Fiesta, so has some pedigree in 2WD. But no prior international experience.

    This year he has driven the Hyundai AP4 in 2 rounds and a local manufacturers in 2 rounds too(Holden Barina AP4), as well as a very old GC8 Subaru. So not a dedicated campaign, as he looks to be focused on his international future. He could have some great potential, however not sure if he has any tarmac experience.

    No real tarmac experience that I know of, from his media comments he is planning to play it pretty safe on the unfamiliar snow and tarmac rounds to gain some experience and push a bit more on the gravel.

    Yes, he is trying to get together a budget at least
    Steve is a potensial champion i think.
