    I still really wish there'd been a secondary 'Red Bull Toyota GR (Junior)' team, if only for Kalle in a 4th full season car, but Katsuta could have been in a second points scoring car in that team,...

    Zero chance for any of them. Too late. Only rallies that are already planned/running or possibly WRC rounds dropped last year (like Corsica) stand a chance of being ready.
