    Still plenty of time until the season, but it's still looking fairly light in terms of entries. Really hope that the Hansens bring something to the table and Bakkerud gets a drive.

    At the minute it seems that GRCE has more news, although I take a bit of it with a pinch of salt.
    You're so beige, you probably think this signature is about someone else.

    GCK, Hansen(s) and Bakkerud would make for an interesting season.

    I wonder if the rumours about Galli are true and we will see him in 2019 as well.

    Galli is basically a press release asking for a driver with a budget to buy a ride from him.

    GCK though, they have been quiet and I think without the works cars at the front they and GRX could get some over-due results. Hope they return.

    I wonder what Ekstrom is doing this season? I thought he would return to circuit racing with Audi, but so far no announcement.

    I personally think there is a massive amount of untapped potential in the GCK Megane: just need the right driver(s) to get the best out of those cars.

    With the current list, and based on 2018 form, I still think that Baumanis is going to be the one to beat. He was regularly the closest challenger to the factory teams.

    I was wondering about Bakkerud and his sponsorship deals. I don't know if he was a Red Bull 'athlete' in the same way that he was at Monster. e.g were Red Bull sponsoring him or the team? If just the latter then presumably he's burnt his bridges with Monster and lost a reasonable cash injection in the process?

    Would be great to see him get one of the spaces that's up for grabs, I think he'd be a challenger in either the Stard Fiesta or the GCK Megane.

    Baumanis or Gronholm would be my pick. I thought Niclas was hugely impressive last year.

    I have heard (from a relatively trustworthy source) that the switch between brands was amicable, so I think he'd be OK to switch back if need be.

    Bakkerud in the GCK Megane could be a very interesting combination. I did wonder if Bakkerud might be a possible option for ES Motorsport as well?

    I read a rumour that Hayden Paddon will compete in some EU rounds.

    That is not a rumour. Paddon will compete in GRX championship which has all rounds in Europe.
    Have a great day, Rob

    But that GRX has nothing to do with World RX or European RX championships. GRX has own car which you canīt use in WRX/ERX

    Correct. I have not read anywhere that Paddon will drive outside of GRX. There will be a lot of different championships to follow this year for those who are interested :-) And, my bad, it is not GRX but GRC Europe.
    Have a great day, Rob
