    Sordo has had a great year and Hyundai should be laughing for Spain with Sordo and Loeb's road position, but I can't help but feel Breen would've been a better option for Australia. A fast flowing gravel event which Sordo hasn't even done in the last few years, plus Breen has shown he can be quite fast with the i20 (with road position advantage in Finland). He wasn't that far off the pace in Wales either.

    Rather surprised to see Kopecky on the list (and with Dresler?)

    Is that just in case Skoda haven't wrapped up WRC2Pro manufacturers title?

    Nice also that WRC2 isn't a free win for the driver who just enters.

    I suppose Hyundai can still switch Sordo for Breen if Sordo wins in Catalynua and gets a good early start position

    Cant help but think Craig has burnt his bridge with Adamo already after his GB performance. He was supposed to be in a Hyundai at Rally Legend but ended up in a Subaru...

    They didn´t know what MSport is going to do with entries.

    Now Skoda is PRO Champion before Catalonia even starts.

    I´m surprised if Kopecky starts.

    Or maybe Skoda Motorsport just has some excess budget to spend before ceasing the factory team for good?

    spectating

    I am looking to go to this event as I will be in Sydney the week before but looking on the website the information on spectating is terrible - only 3 locations on the Friday (and they look bad). Is there any other information available about unofficial places to spectate?

    Can't even find route maps anywhere. Any help would be appreciated!

    Yes, I agree, his performance in Wales didn't help his chances for Australia or even a partial seat in 2020.

    If in doubt, flat out!
