Why are they using smaller cars for 2011? Because the engine is less powerful or is it just a commercial decision?
It looks like that c**p fiat abarth. :(


it is for R3T group as well as Abath 500 R3T - for privateers


Oh, that´s the reason. At the risk of sounding girly-it doesn´t look nice. :blush:

I don't know anymore, these Ford-news are disturbing me big time ''hmm''

Can Citroen afford to let their Golden Boy Ogier leave?

Who would make room for him - Hirvo or Jari-Mari?

But at least we will see the absolute dream come true in Rally Germany - Kimi and Robert :C: !yahoo:

what disturbing??? it was a brilliant move from Wilson! He probably sent a congratulation and the offer strait after Ogiers first win! And he just put Quesnell in a very difficult situation because Wilson probably offered Ogier the only thing he wants: (the third seat beside Hirvo and JML with) the right to race everybody including Loeb... Quesnell is still waiting for Loeb to decide if he want to continue and now he is in the situation where Ogier is requiring that he has the right to race against Loeb. And loeb probably have in the contract that he is the number One driver...

I don't see ogier mowing.. he is where he is because citroen and the french goverment, but it definitely puts ford in a better situation if the citroen drivers would race against each other next year and take away point from each other (and it has to affect Loebs thoughts about retiring or not)...so Ford can only win in this situation... this is just my two cents what the Ford offer is about...

oh, I so like the style Citroen and Ford are playing chess with each other ... when you compare to the psychological war tthrough the media the team managers use in F1 :O

did you also notice that it wasn't many days after Sordo hade slipped that Quesnell was planning a thre driver team next year that Wilson called Andersson and put him on a wheel of a Ford WRC and now he is competing with it... Is it just me who sees a pattern here

That's just the disturbing part, Julia - it's not all very familiar to me yet and reading these... don't know how to build upon them because of so little information :blush:

Why can't they just keep it simple and clear :<>:

I don't think it makes sense for 3 car teams because only two drivers can be nominated for manufacturer points. Somebody will have to go. :fear:

Block relishing move to one car for 2011
News
6th July 2010
By Richard Rodgers

Ken Block says he can’t wait for the 2011 season to begin because he will no longer have to swap between two different types of rally car.

The Monster-backed driver has used a Group N-based Ford Fiesta in the Rally America National Championship and a Ford Focus World Rally Car on selected rounds of the global series.

However, Block is planning to contest all 13 rounds of next year’s world championship in a new generation Ford Fiesta RS WRC at the expense of his national title bid.

Speaking during an appearance on the Richard Burns Foundation stand during the recent Goodwood Festival of Speed, Block said: “It’s very difficult to go back and forth between each car because they are unique and there are lots of different requirements.

“I set myself up with a very difficult schedule at the start of the year but it’s something I always wanted to do. Next year actually gets a bit easier because we go into the new WRC car and I can just focus on the one car and getting the best out of that one car. It will make it easier on myself mentally, and the co-driver and the whole team.”

Block returns to WRC action on Rally Germany in August. Before then he will contest the New England Forest Rally, the final round of the Rally America National series, from July 16-17.
