    Marcus Grönholm tested the Proton Iriz R5 with Mellors Elliot Motorsport, and he thinks its ready to debut in the WRC.

    Personally think it might be more sensible to start in ERC until the car is a bit more proven but would be great to see it either way.

    There has been a suggestion that the Iriz has been running a bigger restrictor whilst winning National level events in the UK but would be good to see it progress to a higher level. Its a slightly weird looking machine but seems to work really efficiently.

    The best for them is to compete with the best.
    will Mellor drive himself, together with one or two more cars.
    Any ideas for the other drivers they have?

    It makes no sense only to be there. They have to take some of the very best drivers available to achieve also some remarkable results like they did in the past with the Satria S2000.

    If its money available, they should hire some of the free drivers, like Tidemand, Meeke, Lappi(?), Paddon, etc, for single outings or whole season in ERC and WRC3.
