    I agree but at least if you read the Dirtfish article it suggests they are employing a more strategic policy now rather than treating the Rally 2/R5 programme as a bit of an after thought as they have done previously. I suspect they are happy to develop a better car that they can sell in larger number in national markets and maybe see some of those cars on ERC and WRC events where the pace against the Skodas can be evaluated rather than get involved in a fight that they would probably lose, certainly early doors. They appear to be waiting to see how the regs for Rally1 and 2 develop which would be sensible I guess. As it is they have started off well in some National series like Portugal and Belgium so will be interesting to see how it pans out elsewhere

    TBH, at National level the driver quality is often much more important than the car. Like in Portugal, Meeke was the difference and probably would have won in any Rally2 car.
