The WRC crown is quite an ambitious target but then why else would they be entering the WRC.
Sordo should help the team a lot with his experience from being at citroen up till recently while Meeke will be a very strong challenger due to his experience of this type of car. The other side of it is that Citroen will be very hard to whack with their Sebs and fast car...
I still can't figure out why he didn't forgive Petter as he would have been the man to fly the flag if I were team boss.
Prodrive picked the perfect time to jump in with all these regulation changes I know but it will take some time before they can win rallies.

BMW said the same thing about World Superbikes, and guess what? They're behind schedule! Darn silly to proclaim such things when competing against long established manufacturers.

It's 2013 - MINI is making W.R.C boring with all its mighty victories.. Only One Man can stop them... Matthew Wilson - who is supposed to be winning championships in year 8 of the 5 year plan..
