Chris Atkinson: It was a good comeback, we were 15th at one stage, so to get sixth is fantastic! Obviously, it could have been better, but I'm happy

daffyd. i am also with you on this one. atko had a reasonable drive, but could hardly be called a front runner. and as you say, he BUYS his drives. that is why he has been in a number of dfferent makes in the last year. if he was genuinely top notch, he would not need to be paying to hire a car.

Chris Atkinson - BUYING? his drives? Seriously? Are we talking about the same Queensland, Australia based Chris Atkinson? Unless your race V8 Supercars it is not easy getting money / sponsorship for WRC events if your Australian. WRC Rallying doesn't exactly have a high profile here in Australia. It hasn't even been shown on TV for the last 2 years.( maybe? on pay-TV? somewhere...)
I'd love you all to tell me the names of the companies or the names of the business individuals who ae sponsoring / throw heaps of money at Chris Atkinson. He brings a 'little bit' of cash with him - everyone does in the lower ranks of rallying but t certainly ain't much. Name me a big shot company that is showering Chris with funds............
