    Would be a bit of a step back for Sirmacis having previously done well in R5 machinery but that is a good prize on offer..

    R2 is still a lot better than not driving at all. Would be great if Sirmacis gets to do the whole season, he is/was one of the fastest U25 drivers

    Also doing the JWRC gives you good media coverage.

    And experience of the WRC rounds with less pressure.

    Really?? I bet most forum members here couldn't say the names of the last JWRC-champions without having to look it up. And it's not cheap at all.

    Agree. Support championships all are more or less bogus for visibility and mostly about gaining experience. Disclaimer: this is just my personal view not based on actual input from anyone who's contested in those series.

    Yes, and sometimes you need to make step back to do jump into next level. I think it could work for Sirmacis, and I hope so. Would be nice to see him in ERC/WRC2 with R5, but he has some financial troubles, so JWRC isn't worst possibility in career.

    JWRC is not cheap but WRC2 is way more expensive.

    If you want to be World Champion you cant drive in ERC forever, you just have to learn WRC events.

    I wonder how much of WRC2 you could do with the JWRC season budget, with a chance to actually win. One rally?
