Excellent news and just what WRC needs, hopefully the other manufacturers who are rumoured to be considering WRC returns will now commit and swell the number of works teams further. Also great to see the privateers and semi works teams competing in same spec cars as the "big boys" - think there will be plenty of surprises before the season ends....

Good news and good luck to all involved. Hopefully the car will not be as unwieldy as it's name! MINI John Cooper Works S2000!! Come on, it hardly trips off the tongue, or does it sound logical in German?

Anyone else notice the panel that the brake lights are on? It's a rectangle! It doesn't look too nice now but when MINI get the proper livery sorted it should look fine.

I agree that the other potential manufacturers should follow suit. Olivier Quesnel is very sure of himself when he says that Volkswagen are entering the Championship. I've read several interviews and in every one he says VW are coming next year. Here's hoping!
