I think Petter should be doing more of this sort of thing seeing as he has limited Funding

There are no shortage of drivers looking for a deal

That Xzara has been sitting Idle on his books since right after Finland Last year

He is asking a whopping £350k for it so it aint gonna sell anytime soon, he may as well rent it out

@ Richard & Taz

Yeah, great news about Kris Meeke & the possibility of Marcus returning with Prodrive and the WRC Mini.

2011 - Matt 10th in every rally, 10 minutes off the pace and 10th in the championship....

2012 - Toyota return and VW join the WRC
Matt 15th in every rally, 15 minutes off the pace and 15th in the championship....

We're now 7 years into the 5 year plan and a WRC championship win looks further away than ever.

Sorry, couldn't resist

I had to chuckle. In Drontal in Germany I think me and the missus were the only Brits there. The announcer was calling out to fans of the drivers. "Everyone supporting Loeb" and the crowd went mad. This went on until Matt and there was complete silence.
