    Surely you haven't seen the WRC'17 car in person? There's no way I'd have traded the last three years for three years of R5s instead. What's to say there would have been more manufacturers anyway?...

    I'm not sure why you're addressing me like an idiot. We'll have to agree to disagree.

    Shame, but it was good for me while it lasted! It was an unexpected pleasure to have the WRC launch in my home city. I'm not sure about the value of it overall, I don't think the most was made of it....

    Sadly not, but underneath every WRCar is a core skeleton much like any other BIW that came off that model's production line. All were born equal, some went on to live more interesting lives than...

    I think he'll be happy with that. Ideally you'd want Gus in a fourth car and Mads in the third, as Mads can be a solid regular points scorer. Though given that I doubt the Manufacturers Championship...

    Never did add my thoughts... I did Radnor, Halfway, skipped Saturday (got my stuff dried out!), Twigless and Bewshaugh. Really nice event and got to do Halfway and Bewshaugh for the first time. I...

    Shame. I'd have thought Corsica would be a more likely candidate to pick up the baton anyway. FFSA always keen to keep it alive. The helping hand of Jean Todt... The organisers seem a bit...

    It'd seems ridiculous to have a thirteen round calendar now after having to drop rallies due to there being too many! Is it really too late for Spain or Corsica to step back up?

    I still don't really understand why Tommi would chose to put Rovanpera in the third car, rather than a fourth car. It can't be a money issue. It's just put unnecessary pressure on Rovanpera at an...

    Five rallies seems like a random number, unless Katsuta is lined up to do nine rallies? A Japanese sponsored 4th car would be nice, seeing as the junior team isn't happening...

    If nothing else, it's be a nice retirement fund for Meeke.



    I really hope so. A two car secondary Toyota team would solve a lot of problems right now!

    During Rally GB, wasn't Petter talking about hoping some plans would come together for 2020? Something he said gave me the impression he might be hoping to bring his team up for a WRC2 campaign.

    I hope it's Chris Ingram rather than Loubet. Loubet doesn't need a manufacturer funded drive, he'll be there anyway. Plus, if Loubet is going to be in a WRCar for some rounds, I don't know that it'd...
