He then says that Hyundai itself has a TCR program thats well balanced between Factory and Costumer/Privateers just to say that it would not work in WRC because of the "prestige".... Mate, honestly, BIG WRC FAN HERE, but You are literally talking about "Oh, maybe we will have to step down from our top class in this championship because theres not much brand's interest anymore"... so, let me ask: WHAT PRESTIGE? haha Idk, that one was weak
    There is a FIA world championship for manufacturers with over 50 years of heritage in WRC versus private touring car racing series for drivers and teams that collapse after a few seasons to be replaced by another iteration, many people probably cannot name the latest without looking it up. For Hyundai there's no title to go for in whatever that is now.

    I understand that, but the argument is just BS, especially because they are literally talking about "what to do to be relevant", "how to improve this series". "How to attract brands again". Theres no prestige. Motorsport is weird in this sense. They keep using words and claims like prestige, road relevance, going green to save the planet, herittage... And we KNOW this is all BS.
    Idk, just wish for things to improve somehow

    Nogier warned against a customer class as manufacturer's class based on his experience and from his position. It's not official Hyundai narrative and he did not cover any of those points.

    Only you know your true potential.

    I always think, "finally a chance to address the issues" and then they throw everything into the bin, light it on fire and make things worse.

    Ideal solution for 2025:
    Keep Rally1 Hybrid cars. Hyundai and Toyota run three of them, Msport run two.
    Total: 8 cars

    Now... There are some "old" 22-23-24 Rally1 cars not being used, right? Let Msport remove the hybrid and sell/rent some of those. (2 or 3). Add ballast and let them score points. Let Hyundai use another 2 or 3 of their old cars without the Hybrid for their new costumer program (maybe a Junior program?)
    Let Toyota mount a Subaru bubble in 2 of their older cars and find a partner to run the program.
    Total: 14 cars

    We good?
    A man can dream hehe
