It's great the there will be an English driver in the IRC this year; Kronos will now be maintaining four cars for the series. I'm also interested to see how Skoda will fare with their new car.

so with a bit of luck and some "good winds" from the global economy the S2000 class may become a decent replacement of WRC. One, there will be way more manufacturers than in WRC: skoda, Ford, Peugeot, VW, Fiat, Proton, Opel/Vauxhal, MG maybe even Subaru can build NA WRX for this, certainly the platform is there.
