    [QUOTE=steve.mandzij;1269756]That's great to see! I think I prefer what Croatia was to the current guise of the Tour de Corse...

    I agree. As much as i am in love with tour de corse, it is now only a pale shadow of it former self ... This is a rally which "made sense" some decades ago, as a 24hours non-stop sprint, with 50+ km stages... and terrrible road surface. Now that the rads are wide, flowing and well surfaced, and with the 9 to 12, 2 to 5 schedule it does not make any sense.

    Croatia seemed to be closer to that original spirit (in terms of roads, not schedule of course). So long live Croatia !

    “We can do more on the current car, we could put more into it, but we have to work for next season. That balance is really difficult to strike and one thing which concerns me is that Hyundai is all guns blazing on the current car. That makes me nervous. Trying to make that line in the right place, that’s the most difficult thing – how much energy goes into each topic.”

    Of further concern to Fowler is the return of the Acropolis Rally, meaning a switch from the relatively smooth fast gravel of Chile to Greece’s iconic rough roads in September.

    “Personally, I think it’s good to have the Acropolis back in terms of the championship,” said Fowler, “but for our championship challenge, I think this year we would’ve been better off having not come back to Greece – in terms of the development Hyundai has done and what we targeted.

    From Oliver Solberg's Twitter account:

    @OliverSolberg01
    I'm super excited to announce I'll be back in the @HMSGOfficial i20 Coupe WRC again at @Rally_d_Italia!
    Ever since I stepped out of the car at the end of Arctic Rally Finland I've been desperate to get back in it, and I'm really happy the opportunity has come so soon
    If in doubt, flat out!

    Since he drove it last year it makes sense to run WRC there and not on a rally that he never did before like Portugal. Also they are "delaying" as many WRC2 starts as possible for the new car to come, so better to drive WRC than to sit at home like he did instead of Croatia.

    In line with the introduction of the new generation of power units, which integrate the hybrid technology in Rally1 class vehicles, the FIA will introduce a 100% sustainable fuel in the FIA World Rally Championship from next season.
