    A guy local to me has just taken delivery of a new DS3 R3T which I assume he'll be using for this event. He's previously used a Fiesta MS1 and has designs on being a top tier rally driver. His heart is in the right place, but sadly his right foot often isn't and he also seems to have suffered a lot of mechanical issues. Whether that's down to M-Sport or his driving remains to be seen.
    You're so beige, you probably think this signature is about someone else.

    Deluded is the word you're after. Myself and a few others are of the opinion he's chosen an R3 car for the BRC as there's virtually no competition in that class.

    They're certainly investing a lot of money it, and as you say seems a bit strange to end up in a class that doesn't have that many others in it, but I don't know the reasons behind getting the new car or how it was selected. I do know that M-Sport parts are very expensive and they went through a few of them (driveshafts in particular kept breaking).
