    Citroen didnt sack Meeke, he is still under contract and being paid. So atm he cant drive for anyone else til 2019.

    I don`t want to believe that Meeke made a contract, that allows Citroen to bench him for half a season and ban him from using his own wallet for renting a car for instance, but maybe...

    That junction at 1,8 km is tricky. The video shows well the numerous rhythm changes from very narrow to less narrow, a bit faster and finally onto wide and straight road.

    Both WRC and VETOMIES entries have closed, support event is showing 87 entries but organisation still has "VETO" to take more...
    Amount of WRC entries will decide how many supports they take, 70 is minimum.

    Interesting entries:
    Eskelinen Lancer WRC 02
    Steven "BOS" Bossard (suspension guru)
    Hosike Focus WRC 02
    Lehti Corsa S2000
    Henrik Pietarinen Mitsu, favourite for win.

    Lario M3 and Palmi 323ti compact very loud and powerful
    Vesa Hirvonen probably fastest 2wd

    just look that list!

    40 first entries are in for sure and after that organisation can choose who is accepted. Total 70 crews will be taken.

    Press "Osallistujat" in top for those names.

    It wouldnt have been framed like that as the chance of him being 'benched' was probably never considered.

    As he is still under contract and being paid I dont see how he can drive for another team. Plus he has never had any private funding in his whole career.
