    GRC Europe Info from MJP:

    the Platinum car is not a Lites car but more like a current Supercar built on a custom space frame.
    The body will be our own design but it will be possible to put any body on.

    It will have a little less power around 500hp and 700nm but it will also be 300kg lighter around a 1000kg.
    Due to that and a much better suspension it should be as fast or faster on the track.

    The cost will be around €200k to buy the car and per race it should not be more than €10k.

    The engine will last for 3000km or 3 seasons. Teams do not need to stock parts as we will provide them at the racetrack.
    You will not need an engine or electronics engineer and we can also transport the car from race to race.

    So it will be only 20% of todays Supercar cost but it will be at least as much fun to race.
    Also the race format is slightly different with more cars in the finals and a little longer.

    It will be a really exciting series and we will offer test rides in the cars already in summer.

    The more that comes out from the people behind GRC the less sense it appears to make to me anyway. You have a successful formula with manufacturer involvement big name drivers and a global media reach yet at the 11th hour you appear to press the self destruct button on your own business. Since when did reducing the cost ever appeal to anyone in motorsport? Fingers crossed for a replacement series starting up in the USA some time soon. Guess Papa Doran will be spitting feathers just now..

    How did the Honda and Ford compare on the test?

    Hope someone rents the Civics!

    IMG just launched the ARX: Americas Rallycross Championship. Opening round will take place at Silverstone (as part of the World round), R2 at Canada, R3 and Circuit of the Americas (alongside the World Championship rounds). Location of the fourth and final round to be confirmed.

    VW (Andretti) and Subaru confirmed to enter.

    Maybe. We seem to have a rapidly increasing number of Championships (and classes within them): do we have enough drivers/teams to support them? I have a horrible feeling that at least one Championship is going to be left lacking this year.

    GRC is my candidate for the one to go backwards if not disappear totally. What the promoters of that series appear to have forgotten is the global reach of its own product. To turn it into NASCAR on gravel is missing the point. Ok the formula works for the LOORRS trucks but is that really an International series?

    Regards ARX I'm sure there is a gap in the calendar at Croft later in the year!

    Yep, especially if names like Andretti are opting for other series. ALthough can't see a lot of US viewers getting up early to watch a round from Lydden.
    You're so beige, you probably think this signature is about someone else.
