    You can drive here in the UK when you're 17. I was disappointed not to see him last year! Hopefully it's a sure thing.

    WRC events require you to have a driving license of your own country. So either he would have needed an English driving license or a special permission from his own country to get the license earlier (like Kalle)

    It may have changed since, but I remember Mikkelsen taking his UK test and driving Rally GB just a few days after. He was also allowed to drive earlier than the Norwegian minimum age of 18 for rally Norway after getting special dispensation from the King, whilst he was still 17.

    Yeah, I got confused in my own post. You need a license and you need to be old enough to drive in the country of the rally, but you don't need to have the license from your own country. So if you are 17 and and have a license from your own country, you can drive in the UK, but not in Sweden for example.

    He doesnít need to be 18. He needs to be 17.

    Yes, but that has nothing to with his WRC GB entry.

    Last year he was 17y one week before the WRC GB but that was little bit too soon/late because driving exams and recce etc. Just one more week and he would have entered last year.

    17y is enough for WRC GB entry.
