    I think this car is mega. Powerful, small, light, four-wheel-drive. Reminds me of homologation specials. Well done Toyota for having the guts to produce something like this!

    Bet it isn't cheap!

    True. It's a ~half-pay gig for Teemu. Needs some funds via sponsorship, but not the full amount as M-Sport subsidise. I believe that's the deal offered to Lappi too, provided he can find the...

    Elfyn Evans finally gets a decent salary in the WRC, a just reward. Hopefully, he can stop working in the Suzuki dealership and focus purely on rally at least for two seasons.
