    Wonder how long it will be before the World and European series feature totally separate events? Like the WRC I trust there will be other countries coming out of the woodwork wanting a bit of the action and with greedy promoters at the helm can see some more "traditional" hosts biting the dust. Would be nice for circuits like Lydden though if high level racing can be retained.

    It looks like that. Rumours say that Kenneth Hansen has talked to Hyundai as well. Maybe we´ll see a Hansen/Grönholm-Team next year?

    hmmmm I'd guess a completely different grid for 2018, men.
    Like Peugeot with a new team for Loeb and the Hansen Brothers racing a secundary sqad.
    Ekstrom racing with a Costumer Polo.. maybe with Marklund again?
    DA, Loco, Stard, Munnich all moving to EuroRX.
    BMW helping Timo and JRM with the Minis. ProDrive not racing the WorldRX yet
    I Think if Hyundai enters WorldRX, its gonna be a warning sign to its WRC program
    I dont see K.Erikkson, CsuCsu, Nitiss, Baumanis racing WorldRX next year. (Maybe EuroRX?)
    And I can only hope for Bakkerud to find a good seat

    RedBull Global RallyCross changed (earlier this year) its social media handle(? - names) back to GRCSeries. Now I've seen the official link for the youtube page its just OfficialGRC.
    They announced Total as a new partner. Maybe no more "red bull" support for 2018?

    Why would Ekstrom racing with polo?... About a month ago EKS announce that they are working on new car aswell, to be competitive to VW polo. And that car is Audi S1...

    Prodrive will announce Megane at the start of 2018. World RX start in the middle of april. I don't see the point that they would not starting right away... They start making the car pretty early. And with announcement they said that will compete full time.

    If Hyundai want to enter the rallycross it would not be next year at least. 6 months only until the start of 2018 season and that's not enough. Look how much they need to build i20 WRC car. Then R5... and i30 TCR.

    6 months is more than enough to convert a rallycar, it took Solberg 6 weeks to build a team and car from scratch in 2013.

    If that happen, I hope ERX will get the same video coverages as in WRX..

    And M-Sport pulled together a Focus that was fairly competitive in not a lot of time. That's without already having the WRC car as a base.
    You're so beige, you probably think this signature is about someone else.
