Default SUBARU back to WRC in 2010?

Any word on Subaru coming back to WRC for 2010? Just doesn't seem right. A WRC without subaru

I guess the 80 or so years of rally before the 90's counts for nothing, huh?

News

This article mentions 1.6L turbo engines for 2011. I thought they were switching to 2L NA engines & S2000 specs for 2010.

The way I see it, the new regs make it easier and cheaper for other manufacturers to enter the WRC. The same regs that make it cheaper for everyone else will make it more expensive for Subaru to re-enter since they would have to design a whole new car from the ground up.

I think you should do some reading.

Not really...

The World Rally Champoinship was first contested in 1973. That means Subaru was a competitor for well over half of the WRC's existence.

If you really think Subaru means as much to rally as Ferrari do to F1 or Porsche does to Le Mans, you sadly mistaken. As evidenced by the fact that no one really gave a crap about them pulling out except the fanbois here.

The F1 world championship wasn't contested until 1950. However grand prix racing existed before 1950, just like rally racing did before 1973. And even then, Ford has left a much greater mark on rally racing on that time than Subaru, and arguably Citroen has as well.
