Not if Ford has anything to say about it.

It would be nice, though, wouldn't it?

I thought the head of Prodrive and McRae had a few disagreements in the past over the team and how it was to run? Why would they let him back? Yah he's a good driver and all but wouldn't that cause trouble with Burns? After all Subaru didn't name a car the RB5 in honor of McRae. Maybe Toyota will get back into it and he can join their team.

No more than the RB5. In fact, I've seen more McRaes than RB%s, but that could be because the RB5 looks like a WRX/STi, but the McRae was very distinctive.

If they join forces next year, perhaps they could release two new models, the Impreza Ginger Pig and the Impreza Flying Gerbil

McRae speaks weird.
Toyota pulled out of WRC to join F1.

McRae is quick, but he also totals cars, and has no mechanical sympathy. It is not by chance that he always has more problems with his cars than his team mates

olllld news... pure speculation...

and after the last rally, Colin commented that he was quite happy with Ford at the moment and may consider resigning w/them...

he just wants to win and NOBODY wants to be the #2 driver... which is what he would be if he came back to Subaru... i don't see it happening...

and Geezer... watch the Ginger Pig comments...

Cool

If McRae went back to Subaru, he would be number one! After all, he has won the WRC and has more wins than his insipid carrott top ex-colleague (oh, and some personality!).

It's like George Best and Pele, George was great but just didn't cut the mustard compared to Pele. I'm afraid Mr Burns might as well get used to living in the shadow of the Flying Scotsman, sorry Subie Gal!!!
