Interesting, in a The Checkered Flag interview Marcus Grönholm says that if the Hyundai plans do not go through, they will drive with the M-Sport Fiesta. If the Ford is for sale, does it mean that the Hyundai deal is ready?

Several sources claim that at least 2 of the EKS S1 cars have been purchased by the Belgian team Comtoyou Racing. French Benoît Tréluyer and Belgian Enzo Ide will apparently drive for the team in WRX 2018.

One is from rallycross.no that wrote on Facebook that a team, with a pic referring to Comtoyou, had bought EKS cars and were to run them.

The other source was a pic of a text where someone had wrote that he or she had read on the internet, although not confirmed, that the cars were bought by Comtoyou and that they would field two cars for the drivers mentioned above. It was not visible in the pic who had written the text.

Seems like it’s gathering momentum now
Hopefully EKS are back in the same way as last year and it should keep the progress of the championship

Progress? I see little progress, losing Ford, Audi, and perhaps one or two others is not progress. The series stagnated massively last year.

That is part of the reason why they are pushing electric, in a desperate effort to get manufacturers, that is all IMG cares about, literally ALl.

Hope they have at least the same number of cars as last year. This was the minimum to have a nice event!
In this case, we need some new teams/drivers...

At the moment there are more "-" then "+" with just 2.5 months to go.

Let's hope for some good news next week from EKS.
If it was bad news, they would cover in silence...

EKS have been posting videos and pics since the season ended and was supposed to announce something in December. There have also been lots of rumours of them staying and building new cars.

Only problem would be the DTM race in Hockenheim and WRX in Buxtehude is on the same date; 13 & 14 october 2018.

Was just coming here to post that! Shame for Nitiss, hopefully he will find a drive elsewhere.

I have read a few comments online about Timur Timerzyanov at EKS. Apparently Timur hasn't been at the recent STARD test sessions?
