The original pitch had prodrive running the rally arm of the Toyota operation as well... quite how that would work with the prodrive Toyota versus the prodrive Subaru (and possibly the TWPG Lancers as well) was not clear.

I just hope NBM coming 1-2 in the series, winning the manufacturers and drivers titles, and pretty much smashing the field at most rallies is enough for the mob from Altona.... methinks it isnt somehow

Prodrive already have a team in the V8s I wonder how hard it would be to make one of their BAs look like a fridge, oops I mean Toymotor.

I am wondering how they will pull it off with interests in FPR, Britek and TKR in a support role and potentially two Toyotas. Doesnt any new entrant have to support 6 cars?

TSR has a lot of promise if they can keep it on the circuit!
This story was reported in last FRIDAY Sydney Dailey Telegraph.

Isn't Toyota a Subaru shareholder since last year? If I remember well they bought the Subaru shares from GM.

Motorsport organisations tieing up with different manufacturers in the same region has happened before, for example in the mid-80s when TWR ran works Jaguars and works Rovers in European Group A racing at the same time (though Jaguar and Rover were linked of course)

A better example is in the late-90s, Ray Mallock Ltd ran the works Nissan's in the British Touring Car Championship, and at the same ran the works Vauxhall Astra's in the British Rally Championship (the works Vauxhall's in the BTCC of course being run, as know, by 888).

It wouldn't really have any effect on the V8 side of things i wouldn't think, Prodrive own Ford Performance Vehicles after all.

A Toyota/Prodrive rally team isn't impossible, though the ARC seems to be heading into very troubled times (the loss of Rally Australia could have the same effect on Australian Rallying as happened when we lost the Southern Cross Rally in the early 80s), it's not exactly hot property at the moment.
