Silhuette should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
I watched some YouTube coverage on the E car. It looks pretty fast and goes sideways on straights under power like a real WRX car. As support series go, this has my vote. If the drivers are up to spec, this could work!

Not sure if this is just in relation to their webstore...

Nitiss is going rallying this year so unlikely he'll be involved - apparently he's looking to gain experience this year then go for the European Rally Championship in 2021.

Welcome to the doom and gloom, gone to the dogs chat for a couple of months then WRX pulls a rabbit out the hat and delivers 18 permanent entries.

I hope ERX has a better permanent entry this year. Last year was quite poor. And I hope the WRX grows a brain and increases s1600 to 30 max entries. Every round was oversubscribed last year then you get a few drop outs and are left with 22. Just accept all entries and you'll seldom get more than 25 actually starting the first heat.

Why let fact get in the way of a good doom and gloom thread?

Sondre Evjen (in a Polo again) and Ben-Philip Gunderson (in a JC Raceteknik Audi) already confirmed. Some of the Euro entries seemed to come very late last year, so hopefully this is a good sign that we'll see more in advance this time around.

I would guess some teams start late as they get tempters from IMG perhaps to do a few rounds.

S1600 is a no brainer, great racing and a huge talent pool would far rather see them than the RX2 go karts.

I hope they see sense and reduce the fees etc involved for teams as right now it seems no RX cartel either, which reduces the prestige of an already well below expectations last year series, although the racing last year was much improved, other than the nonsense between the Hansens and Bakkerud, which I could do without, that has its place, but not at this level.

Johan Kristoffersson considering his options for 2020:

I'd love to see Johan in an EKS S1.

Would VW Motorsport let that happen?

(or do you mean the KMS Polo?)

I think VW let him use one of the Polos for select events in 2019, but it is back in Hannover now?

Doubt Solberg even got his hands on it. It's incredible though, all those WRC rallycross and WRC cars VW built must just be sitting in some warehouse.

Not many announcements. It sounds like the series is struggling for money.

Reason why a lot of teams and drivers have left the series, it's just not worth it.

Besides, I think many think are more interested in electric cars.

Well the paid or semi professional drivers maybe, I doubt the audience is looking forward to that, despite the sheer power
