ooo suprise VW wanting to jump in when the rules change and citroen and ford pull out or have to do a complete redisign and re-investment in new rules.

Wonder why they didnt have ago at Citroen and Ford a couple of years back if they are so good at building cars....

Was wondering when this story was gonna appear, thought it was a bit odd Mr Sainz turning up in Germany in a VW and running as the course car. Still as the WRC has been dying on it **** for the last few years its nice to see the Mini showing up next year and possibly a VW in the not to distant future. Not up to speed with the regulation changes for the cars in 2011 but how easily can the S2000 cars be converted into next years WRC cars coz this would no doubt bring a few more teams in??????

They have been talking about this for years, lets wait and see if they commit.

I hope they do, WRC needs manufacturers who'll commit for 10 years.

While all the interest by these Manufacturers is welcomed - the WRC needs more than that. The actual WRC needs and overhaul, as do they events. 10 - 14 indentikit events is not what the sport needs - the 'cloverleaf' format has almost killed the sport. Bring back variety - with a mix of 2, 3, 4 day events - with some night stages, etc

I can't believe that company like Volkswagen need 2 years to build a WRC car. They have enough money so why they are making people to wait for such a long time. Still they have 4 months in hand to move quickly.
