There’re no seats, no good ones, no middle-class ones and not even bad ones. If he doesn’t manage to get the money to keep on rallying, it’s over. :(


.... well, I assume (and sincerely hope) he has a couple of more motorsport-options than that between his first option and sitting home on his sofa an spitting on the roof... :O

Yeah, but I’m absolutely afraid of motorbikes and even if I watch Nascar every now and then and follow the live timing sometimes, well, I keep on finding hard to understand what’s wonderful in “let’s turn left, and left and left and left and left…”

Just the thought of these two possibilities makes me nervous :fear:

There’s an interview with Ken Block in Rallye Magazin. The last paragraph issues the 2nd car story. This is more or less what they say:

Whether he is going to start the season with a teammate is still open. The Monster World Rally Team doesn’t want to announce any plans about a possible second car until mid-January. “Anyway, there’s more to come -at least from me”, Block grins.

Mid-January? I think, they’re definitively waiting for somebody to find the budget. Let’s wait and see who that driver is.
