    That doesn't make it right. Let's look at it realistically. Who can realistically send cars to every WRC event out of possible WRC2 Pro entrants? I would say only Škoda.

    Not necessary. Hyundai could do it too. They have currently 4+1 drivers (if we count Huttunen too). Only Neuville is settlet for a full WRC season. Sordo, Paddon, Mikkelsen could rotate over seats and mybe they could put them in R5 whenever they will not be driving WRC car. Huttunen in second R5 or maybe one WRC start.

    [QUOTE=pantealex;1201585]I understand that they can drive as many events they want but 8 best scores counted for PRO and for normal WRC2 6 best scores from 7 first starts./QUOTE]

    Ok, that’s drivers series, but what about the manus championship? It’s 1 car result per event; can 14 results count or is there also a limit?

    "highest placed car(s) in each team will score points in the FIA WRC 2 Pro Championship for Manufacturers. "

    It´s 2 cars result per event, doesn´t say how many events manufacturers can count.

    I don't get that. If they can enter 2 cars at max, why say the highest placed cars score manu points? It must mean that only one car scores manu points.

    "Competitors in the newly-created FIA WRC 2 Pro Championship are permitted to enter two R5 cars per team and must participate in a minimum of seven rounds with one car – including one event outside Europe. For the Drivers’ and Co-drivers’ Championships, the eight best scores will count towards the titles, while the highest placed car(s) in each team will score points in the FIA WRC 2 Pro Championship for Manufacturers. Competitors will have P2P status, be permitted one day of testing per event per driver, and will start in Championship order after the P1 drivers on the first day of competition. On days two and three, crews will start after the P1 group, in classification order.

    The FIA WRC 2 Championship, now solely for drivers and co-drivers, will have no minimum number of events, although the first six scores from seven entered rounds will count towards the titles. Competitors will be permitted one day of pre-event testing and will start in Championship order after the P2P group, and on days two and three after the P2P group in classification order. No WRC 2 registration fee will be requested from competitors who hold a licence from the ASN of the organising country for the first event in which they participate."

    Read those rules and speculate after reading how you understand those.

    It would say just highest placed car in each team will score points if it means 1 car now it´s car(s) so must mean 2 if Team has 2, 1 if Team has only 1

    yeah but...two highest out of two car team is the whole team...I think the plural stands for multiple teams and only one car scores manu points.
