    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.

    Heck - is it really possible? I wonder if the FIA have a plan B to keep the series running in some capacity, or at least the balls to treat whatever happens as a fresh start - i.e. changing the regs before the inevitable happens.

    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...
    Will the others object to it being homologated? Not sure, but itís different from the Polo situation as everyone including the other teams thought that at the beginning of 2017 the Polo would have been the best overall car.

    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?

    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
