Well if you ask me BMW better start being nice to Prodrive or I can see a nice little Lucrative contract going Prodrives way, they need to get back round the Table and quick before the Japs get in there

Prodrive have done wonders with the Mini and it would be a shame to loose them at the expense of Toyota, but there are not too many Teams with the experience and capability of Prodrive let alone the facilities

Its a shame Toyota Team Europe closed their doors to Rallying, TTE were always part of the furniture in the WRC, even if they were lets say a bit naughty in 95 - lol, but their days with the Corolla were quite good, it would be great to see Toyota Return to the WRC properly with a healthy Budget

There are rumours Prodrive will be invlolved in Fiat return to WRC. I guess the divorce with BMW is matter of time.

Good news for WRC anyway. More manufacturers will definitelly bring some more concurrency in the championship. With VW enetering nextyear I guess Citroen domination will be soon over.

For Toyota WRC is much better (and probably also much cheaper) bet than F1 where they achieved ony 1 victory I think. They already changed theur motorsport course with WEC, why not WRC also.

Let's all cross our fingers, it'd be great to see Toyota and the classic Castrol colour scheme back in rallying going head to head with Ford, Citroen, VW and whatever BMW/Mini are doing this week!

Richard I will be honest I find WRC just about the most boring form of Motorsport my point was maybe more manufacturers would make it more interesting.

It's indeed good news, and the next gen of Yaris looks like a good racer.

Thanks to the FIA engine regs, Toyota may also enter the WTCC (with an Auris/Corolla I guess).

That would be nice if Honda could ponder entering WRC with a Jazz maybe. OTOH, PSA could also go in WTCC with a 308RC powered by the same engine as in the DS3 - let's dream a bit...

There's little chance to have Renault but why not Nissan then ?
