Don't think Larsson would even want to make the trip over.

The cap is too low though. When there only is WRX and no ERX there is definitely room for more cars. But I guess the regulars in WRX wants as few single entries as possible.

But the regulars will walk all overMDK, Munnich, Kaszmarski and the like. They did at Portugal. They shouldn't be too concerned. But the fans want to see more action. And yes, I appreciate it depends on other classes but where it's WRX only, it should be 30. With the fees they charge it will rarely get more than that. ,

Decided to read the rules. Doesn't seem to be any wiggle room in the 25 number. There is a reserve list though, up to the Monday before the event. That's a good idea especially for local drivers who could attend at short notice.

Entry for non permanent is 1,100

Tanner Foust? Marklund has run a Polo for him in recent years, could use Magda's. Would like to see him in a Beetle over here though, wonder if Eklund has been approached.

Procter's car not WorldRX legal. Tohill?

To be honest there probably won't be any Swedish teams there besides from the regular ones. Perhaps if someone rented a car from a Swedish team there could be another entry.

Personally could only imagine Foust taking part in a third PSRX VW Sweden Polo since Marklund in the past had official VW affiliation. Marklund however got some cars but it would be odd in my opinion if we saw him in one. Foust also usually announce his program before the season starts.

Even if Foust were to run privately I really doubt that he would want to hire the Eklund Beetle since it doesn't have the highest of standards really.

Wasn't the point of the ECU to keep the costs down? Yet it result in higher costs and cuts out possible cars?

Really restricts entreis to UK drivers as 1100 quid plus travel diesel, ferry is going to be probably closer to 4 or 5 grand for a Scandinavian entry

Either way it matters not, 20 and a few UK stragglers is what you will have plus about 15 rwd cars and a few RX2's

And a spluttering GpB demo.

If Foust or anyone major was going to enter then we would have heard about it by now. Would have been a press release. If anyone, likely to be lower key.

ECU/software regulation is to prevent cheating, not for cost control.

Lol, really, it has nothing to do with making everyone use the same stuff and then they get to supply every car on the grid then?

There is one than one aspect to sole supplying in every race series int he world.

Cheating should be enforced by better scrutineers, a thing that has always been very lax in rallycross compared to other motorsport, because simply it is so free in terms of what you can do.

The only way to keep costs down is budget caps, and I see little appetite for that.

There are a number of manufacturers with homologated ECU's, drivers aren't restricted to just one type so it's not a case of forcing a single supplier on everyone.

Of course, silly me. I'll try and incorporate more wild rumours and IMG-bashing in my next reply.

Actually I doubt the cost of a spec ECU makes much of a difference to the cost of building a podium capable car.

What I do know is that there is every possibility of making a group B engine run well today - a local acquaintance has an original evo spec sport Quattro and it runs loud and clean. It's just so angry it's not even funny

Modern cars are just so very much faster, but I wish they sounded half as good...
