And again they did it all wrong,they should enter only a test for the two rounds and then have a massive test in the summer break.I'm sure that the car wont be compatitive the car isn't set up properly and it will break down.

At least it looks better than the pig-ugly road car.
Subaru's used to look good, what happened.

Hopefully this can bring some success and help put
an end to what is, at the moment, only a race to
finish second to Loeb!

"I'm sure that the car wont be compatitive the car isn't set up properly and it will break down"

Subaru have a good history with new cars, 1997 the new impreza won 4 on the trot
and all the years up untill the current car was baught out the cars hae been competitibe from the off.

Is the useless driver Petter going to drive it?

Then it will be developped on backward like he did with the old impreza
unless if Markko is given the job to develop it.

He chased pirelli tyre in 06 nd other drivers are finding it good.


The last time he won it was a given victory in Wales and the last time the impreza was competitive it when Tommi developped it.

I'm sorry for chris, he has n't a teammate. and look at when chris is given the priority to set up the car, he is a front runner but if Petter....disaster.

I would be happy if Markko would be no1 in subaru and petter is given a job of PR in subaru. only that is his capability.

Yes, it's true they tend to bring out a new car that is successful right away, but this is a different situation with the problem they have been having for 3-4 years, it can't be magic. It seem a bit of a desperate move, more in term of commercial than competitiveness. It's a little early and probably needed some more testing, and they haven't sorted out the BOS damper problem yet. I am a big Petter fan and I still hope for him to comeback, ofcourse I want to be proved wrong and the car could be realiable. But it could be a good thing to put it in Acropolis as a test session anyway since it is a very rough rally, to gather datas for Finland.
