Seriously doubt that. Sponsors around here aren't that keen on exposure that they would rather want a driver competing in this series over ERX.

The last few seasons drivers have opted for Rally X Nordic mostly because of the lower costs and/or the more even levels of competitiveness.

The French Championship has a long history and is rooted in France whereas Rally X Nordic is a relatively new series that operates in Sweden and mostly revolves around Swedish competitors.

Good hunch. Philip Gehrman will compete in RallyX Nordic, citing that TV and media exposure for his sponsors was very motivating for them and one of the reasons why they made the switch from ERX. He will be driving an ex-WRX VW Polo.

An ex-VW Motorsport Polo? So VW Motorsport have sold one of their World cars on?

Presumably it's a Polo from Marklund. They actually built quite many cars.

The artist impression in that article shows a Polo with no rear radiators...



...and the text (if accurate) would suggest a 2017 (Polo GTi) car.

I think a Marklund car is more likely though. If VW Motorsport were to sell a car it surely wouldn't be cheap!

I usually don't look into to impressions that much since I have noticed many of them being based on WRC cars or cars that aren't representative of the car in question. I think this one may be another example of that.

I think it's impossible for a privateer to get a WRC or RX VW Motorsport Polo. Not even a Polo from before the regulation changes in WRC has been sold.

I very much doubt it is one of the VW team cars of the last two years, before that maybe, but one of the recent cars would cost millions with the service backup required. And by all accounts there were basically run from VW anyway, so will be kept there.

Gehrman told a local newspaper that it was a Marklund Polo (although he referred to it as a manufacture car, don't know why) from 2016. Apparently they built five of them.

In 2016 the team raced under the VW Sweden banner, I assume that makes it a "factory" car.

Ulrik Linneman revealed in a video on Facebook a few minutes ago that he will compete in the series along with OMSE in a Honda Civic.

The video is in Danish however. I barely understood it myself.

That's the fifth driver confirmed and the third driver to make a switch from ERX to Nordic.

Two cars from Hedström, drivers TBA but from the looks of the post it's probably Hedström himself and Daniel Thorén.

16 Supercars for the first round in Höljes.

Notably Niclas Grönholm is on the entry list. Not sure if I'm too thrilled about it since he may completely dominate if he is in the Hyundai.

How many kids has Andreas got for goodness sake, and they all seem to be boys! Give someone else a chance for Gods sake.

Oh, Hansen .....
