    Nothing to prove ? The i20 has the following record in ERC:

    Events: 3
    Starts: 6
    Stage wins: 0

    My point was that after two years we know how good the car is, don't we?

    I would rate the drivers lower then Luky and Gryazin, so a bit of a suprise for me.

    Exactly. Even Peugeot 208 T16 (a car considered to be a failure by many) was able to win stages and even the whole rallies in ERC. Hyundai hasn't done it so far...

    Anyway, the rally starts tomorrow at 10:08 (11:08 CET). Good luck to all drivers!

    to extract conclusions about a car,must have a reliable proven driver at a competetive championship against other proven crews/cars.

    for example Ucci.

    We will only see a top ERC driver choose to drive an i20 because it is seen as very competitive. But will it happen when there is the proven Fiesta & Fabia ?

    There aren't only ERC results. For example Abbring did some WRC2 events with it.

    Anyway if no top driver chose the car for any whole international championship for two years it speaks quite against the car.

    I think in Ypres there there will be minimum one some sort of a top driver starting with a i20 R5����.

    Btw Why are the fast runners of QS choosing start order like it's a gravel rally?

    Cutting and dragging dirt in to the line is not a problem on this event, and i suppose running after your competitors is an advantage.
