I have often wondered how this Guy would go in a WRC Car, I have a feeling he could do a Tommi Makkinen, when he won the 1000 Lakes 1st time out in a works entered Escort Cosworth in 1994

this Guy has tonnes of experience and he seems motivated to get a Top Drive, even turning down Skoda to get such a drive, he obviously knows which playground he wants to play in

This Guy could be a Solid bet for M Sport as he is consistant and quick on all surfaces. I guess we will soon find out in the 1st two Rallies of next season, its not looking Good for Petter though, although Malcolm has been quick to confirm that Juho will not take up the Third seat, this is still open

I agree with Dafydd. Juho H could be great choice. Everyone raves about Andreas Mikkelson but Juho had the beating of him everytime they went head to head in the same car. this year on the circuit, the 2 of them were flat out, only a couple of seconds between them on each stage. Juho kept his head, Andreas cracked and went off. The situation for Irish and British rally fans is that when Kris meeke had decent machinery in the IRC, he had the beating of Juho on occasions. It just goes to show, if meeke got a proper chance he would be right up there. the problem now is meeke will be gone past his peak in another few years and it doesnt look like he is going to get factory seat soon. And due to where he is from and how rallying is viewed in the UK, no major sponser is going to back with 1.5million a year to compete.
