Other Manus shouldnt object as its likely the C3 will still be off the pace.
And given the doubt about Hyundai's future, having any more cars/teams in WRC should be seen as a good thing for eveyone.

I hate reading stuff that makes me think - Shit! maybe he's right.

Yeah, I think if they can have the new stuff itíll be better than people think it will. I am equally sure there will be no championship threat, but occasional good results on certain rallies wonít be out of the question. Also what effect will the switch to Pirelli have? Will it favour one team more than others? Nobody knows...

He might be right, but I seriously doubt there will be no championship at all. Will it be affected by COVID, of course, especially early season, but as the year goes on I’m sure restrictions will ease again.

Haven't PH Sport had a C3 WRC for years which nobody has used in the WRC? I shan't hold my breath...

It remains a mystery whether they ever had the car or not. Perhaps they were first looking for people renting the car before acquiring it from Citroen Racing, but in the end decided not to?

Well they could run a few events in New Zealand and live stream the footage back to Europe 14 days quarantine and a strong business case for NZ and we could let then in

i was thinking about NZ ,a country with little covid affect.

Potential to run at least 3 international standard events in NZ and another 2 or 3 in Australia. Travel from NZ to parts of Australia (one-way) is already possible with no quarantine period required.

Pretty simple to run four excellent events in NZ. The present WRC event and the Whangarei APRC event in the north island and then the South Island for the Otago APRC rally and then combine the South Canterbury and the Autosport rallies for the fourth event
