Default Sno-Drift Rally, Tanner Foust+SYMS?

I read that Tanner Foust has shown up with a open class car, fancy big-rig and SYMS support. Anybody know what is up? Do you think Tanner has the budget to run a full season? Do you think Tanner may make the championship more interesting?
Thanks,
Ted Mendham

Tanner should have the budget for the championship, hopefully, he'll also be able to run a high spec car, I just hope he doesn't have problem making repairs as he can be hard on his equipment sometimes. I think he'll be mucking it up big time at the top of the leader board.

Don't know much about SYMS, although I suspect they probably formed their relationship at Rally New Zealand...

Cool.
Google search SYMS Rally Team. Looks like they they have run and won in PWRC. If it is the same SYMS.
Good luck to Tanner.

Looks like Hyundai is coming back. Haven't confirmed this officially yet but it looks like they atleast want to qualify for the X games if nothing else.

Meaning Paul is back full-time?

Also, Lauchlin got backing and is running with CPD all season: LINK

Great news all around! This season is going to be something special.

Paul being back full time is the rumor. I haven't seen any confirmation of anything anywhere yet. We'll see if I get some return phone calls and e-mails.

I think Pinker has a full budget as well (atleast through the X games I think) and ACP and Slowboy are good to go for 2007 RallyAmerica.

you have TP, KB, Tanner, Lauchlin, Iorio, ACP, Andy and Paul running most if not all of the events. I heard some grumblings about some other serious contender teams that we might see from 100AW on as well. I believe Brian Scott will run most of the RA national events as well, he may challenge on some events as well.

Then you have PGT with Matt, Pritchard (who might not have PGT experience but the man can drive), and Cowboy Kenny already.





What I meant when I said I didn't know much about SYMS is that I didn't know how their customer programs were outside of the PCWRC (will Tanner get de-prioritized if the PCWRC team has troubles and there is an event coming up for instance). They certainly seem to have their stuff together but I don't know about how much they can handle. I don't know the details of the deal (is it SYMS build and at event supprt, is it all SYMS, will they just be flying in to thrash on the car for events, where will the team base be, etc.).

There should also be one more very serious PGT team coming together soon as well. Can't say more about that right now though.

They'll be able to handle it just fine.....after sno drift he'll (tanner) have a new co-driver too which will shake things up in PGT with the return of one of the fastest PGT drivers in the US. 100AW should be insteresting.

The car goes to paint next week I think. Hopefully there will be an announcement so other people can know whats up by next weekend maybe?

Is the new navie's initials CB or is he going to have someone from overseas?

Here's some more wild rumors and speculation (some in jest, some in jab, some fo'reels):

1) Tanner has plenty of $$$ to run the championship lots of it coming from some energy drink company

2) Tanner uses more hair product than CB. So, he'll be disappointed when he trys to borrow some and there isn't any to borrow.

3) PGT will have lots of entrants but Johnson and Prichard will dominate even if SV comes back and BB car rumors are true.

4) Rally America will continue to attract nearly zero 2wd competitors to their national events. Plus, Eric B's (probably most expensive rally car in US) car will break anyway.

5) TV coverage (especially X-Games) will cover only 5% of the drivers 90% of the time.

6) Only 15% of the drivers will be trying hard enough to be interesting to watch.

Josh is pretty much right on...of course with the exception of item #3...so quickly everyone forgets that frenchies got skills. On a side note, SV has a new STI drift car that is going to be pretty crazy.



Oh - and not that anyone cares but I may show up in PGT at some point too....

For what it's worth, I spoke with Tanner for 10 minutes when he was at CES a few weeks back. I recall him saying he was switching to the open class with a new one-car team with [P|J]WRC experience (I forgot what he said exactly), so maybe it is SYMS.

Plus the new car seems pretty solid, that is as long as he tries not to break it every rally... That and they seem to have lots and lots of spares now...

Does that mean I'll be seeing the SRT-4 here around CO (I assume Todd put you in touch with the interested party and took all the credit of course?)?



Oh, and I think it will be closer to 25% of the field will be interesting at most of the rallies since the fields will be smallish at most of the rallies.

Can't say that I'm surprised considering they were on the podium in a PGT car last year.

Tanner has "mad skillz yo" and now he has some backing to help him.

It's gonna be a good season - - Travis / Ken / Tanner / ACP / Lauchlin / etc. / etc. - - - Now if Pat could only get some Big money and come back and join the fight!

Pastrana over Foust by 6s. FINAL RESULTS (National)

Christian, good job stopping the long stage in order to secure your win! I'm sure the guys over at SpecialStage will have a field day.

I was wondering how long it would take before someone came up with this as a lame a_ _ excuse.

I hardly think that Travis (or Christian for that matter) are the type of people that would even contemplate this.
If they thought the stage was unsafe - It Was!

I agree though, the naysayers on SS.com (and elsewhere) are gonna have a field day with this one.

I'm not serious of course, but it still was the first thing that came to mind when I read about the cross.
