    With a hot version of the 2021 i20, the i20N coming, is it safe to assume Hyundai will also keep the i20 hatch as the 'base car' for the 2022 WRC car ?

    If so all 3 manu's are staying with their small hatchbacks.

    Engine specs will be frozen in April 2021 for five years, meaning the teams cannot develop their engines during that time.

    Also it says M-Sport are not bringing new updated parts yet because they have a stock of old-spec parts that need to be used first. The new engine will come in Monte 2021 and new aero maybe in Sardegna. Sad situation for them.

    So basically the team that doesn't do a good enough job by then, is fucked for the next five years...
    Never stop dreaming because one day it might happen.

    Also notice that the teams have requested this limitation. Even though you cannot change new parts, you can still work on the setup of things and focus the development on other areas in the car.

    I dont think its a big issue for the teams, after all they all agreed to that. They know engines are quite close in terms of performance.

    To be honest, I can't help but think that if the sport was run better in the UK, was more popular and received decent exposure which brought in all kinds of sponsors/££££££ then ForestryEngland wouldn't be bothered about motorsport on their land; in fact they may even welcome it. They even state it themselves that the sport isn't as popular as it was; yet you'll get some people, maybe even those in the sport saying the opposite.

    We need as many people as possible to e-mail them and make them aware of the benefits that motorsport brings to Forestry and the surrounding areas.

    Is there a better sound than that of Porsche engined Flat-6 ???
