I voted for Petter but I have a fealing Marcus will be too strong again this year. I also have a feeling Panizzi's dominance on asphalt is going to start to waiver.

I think Marcus will repeat, but Citroen will take the manufacturer's.

I say McRae will win, but he's risky. Petter will make his mark.

Peugout and Citroen battling for manufacturers champ. Since when where the french good at anything? just kiddin, they are (almost competitive) people too.

Gronholm: best driver, best car

I expect Burns to put up solid challenge.

Gronholm will take it, but not by as big as '02. Colin will take second because I'm old school.
Citroen's gunna do well, and I think Markko Martin will do pretty well, same with Petter.

Im surprised only two votes for Burns, he was strong last year and will continue to be. As far as Petter, he ended with a win, he will have some momentum but doesnt quite have the experience to win it all, but look for good things to come from him. McCrash will do decent depending on how he adapts to his car.

This will be an interesting year. With marlboro jumping to the pugs I wonder if subiw will get some more sponsor money kicked to them this year.....I doubt 555 wants to see the car they sponsor getting whooped by the marlboro car. I'm pulling for petter but unless subaru gets there cars closer to the pugs I think one of the pugs has the best shot at a title.

I voted for Carlos. Citroen seems strong for next year and Carlos has more experience than Loeb and (it seems to me) he's a bit more consistant than McRae.

And although he's not with moya next year, I think Marc Marti will do OK...at least he did reasonably well in Catalunya this year...
