    That would be a total surprise. Alternative energies on the WRC were said to be discussed on a WRC commission meeting earlier in the year, but nothing come out from it. Besides, Smeets recently (last July) made a public request to get hybrids in the series from 2022 (one year earlier than the original 3+3 cycles), but theres was no (public) reaction from other manus to it.

    Evans reported it on a bit confusing piece, althouthg Smeets clearly said at same point: "Maybe the answer is to have a two-year cycle next. That would give the current manufacturers another three years, including next season, but it's also enough time to make a change in the regulations”. Full article here: https://www.autosport.com/wrc/news/1...lectric-future

    Anyway, it’d be quite amazing to see the FIA and the other manus rushing things just to please VW, the same brand that pulled out from the WRC in a hasty way, not showing then to care about the series future.

    That day when there´s no sound from turbo engines in WRC, I´ll quit WRC. Promise. Possibly only follow Rally Finland. And that just for friends and environments around Jyväskylä.

    Chill out, hybrid is not an electric car. Electric cars won't come anytime soon into WRC (unlike in rallycross).

    Not that I like hybrids but the sound is the last thing to be afraid of with them.

    Anyway this is off topic in WRC2 thread.

    It happened in a strange way but Škoda has just officially announced that Jan Kopecký and Pavel Dresler are World Champions!

    It seems that they were waiting for closing of entries for Australia to announce that.

    I'm going to celebrate... well, not because I'm on a forced diet

    At the moment it probably meant, that they couldn`t confirm what one would do with his own money.
