    First there was a quote about Kajto being faster than PT. My answer was: there are two classes. WRC2 and WRC3. PT want to win WRC2.

    Secondly, PT has no future but to drive in WRC2/3. Budget and speed are the two negativs for him. So, he want to show he can win WRC2.

    WRC2 and WRC3 are series. RC2 is a class and Rally2 (previously R5) the type of car used in both.

    The team bosses know how to read results and see who's the fastest RC2 car, no matter the series.

    I guess WRC2 & WRC3 is about giving more teams and drivers the chance to say they won their Class or a Championship. This is what their sponsor's want to hear.

    WRC2 entry fees are also higher, so it means more money coming in.

    Red Grey (ex MarkkoMärtinMotorsport) is not factory team either

    MSport isn´t full factory team

    and in my mind Østberg is also not factory driver, PH-Sport is not factory team

    Why you think Skoda should use factory team ???

    In 2019 we had Skoda (factory), M-Sport (as factory as in WRC) and Citroen (run by PH-Sport but supported by factory)

    Funny one though, they are literally a 'factory team'. They are the team of the factory that make the rally cars! Though their own team isn't even fully funded by the factory... And the factory isn't fully funded by the Manufacturer, if you take that to mean Ford!
