    Kevin Abbring will certainly compete in Monte Carlo and Sweden, probably in Portugal as well. He is looking for further funding (also from Malcom Wilson) to do Germany and Catalunya.

    I just looked him up. He's only 17 like Rovanpera. It would be good to see some non-European prospects. I also hope at least one of the Japanese guys gets some WRC outings. It can only be good for the sport to get more people excited around the globe.

    Rovanperä and Bulacia both did the Adriatico and San Marino rallies last year. Rovanperä was constantly faster.

    What should he do then? drive R5 in Bolivia where he already wins with Corolla?
    Of course he should drive WRC2 events if he has change to do so.

    I think he should do step by step. Continue in some national championship on tarmac or gravel (or mixture) - Italy again, UK, France, there is lot of possibilities. Or move to ERC. But going directly to WRC2 is not the best way, according to my opinion. I think it is too early also for Rovanpera.

    Flying back and forth between Bolivia and Europe for a 100km's of national rally must be really fun.
    What is he or Kalle losing when they start doing WRC rallies soon as they can? They might not be winning the rallies or even finishing top-10 but so what? they get 3 times the kilometers compared to national rallies + experience from the rallies that matter.
    Also just like Kalle, Marco is still 17, which ERC rallies they are allowed to take part except Latvia? and they will be both 18 by then.

    I agree about Marco, he has not so much experience - only two seasons did, Kalle done 4 season, drive 2 WRC and basically 2 ERC events, national 2wd championship step - check; national 4wd championship(s) step - check, International rally step - check, now it's his another step up, drive one or two ERC tarmac events would be great for him, but as Essaj wrote - he drive where he is allowed drive, in this case same goes for Marco.
