They're replacing the Focus with the fiesta? Who the hell wants to see 1.6 litre S2000 spec fiestas running around?

I'm still not sure why Ford and Citroen bother with this championship.

It's great they've kept JML. I personally would've liked to see ERC 550bhp Fiestas in the stages, stil s2000 are quick enough cars 2 keep us entertained.
Citroen just need to get rid of boring Sordo putting Novikov in worx car, and Ford should get Gigi in for Matt.
Now that's my WRC with blackjack and hookers :) :)

The 1600 cc engines will be turbocharges fro the Fiesta from 2011. This will be mint, no doubt about it. If you blow 2 bar through anything its gonna sound and go awesome. s2000 Bring it on. Just watch the manufactures expand. There are plenty in IRC that will switch to the WRC once the rules are all confirmed. :p

For those who has doubts about the capabilities of the 850bhp Ford Fiesta, please take a look at the car used by Gronholm at Pikes Peak this year. Appart from that "normal" 500bhp rallycross Fiesta. :)

Olsberg are taking some Fiesta's to X-Games to go up against the popular Impreza's that usually float around there too.

RallyCross spec Fiesta's aren't no slouch and easily keep up with anything else that's around in a similar trim. Ask Pat Doran :)
