Not strictly 2018 Championship news, but it looks like there is a full article on the switch to electric in the latest issue of Motorsport News.

There is also a short article on the Autosport website:

https://www.autosport.com/wrx/news/1...witch-for-2020

Some interesting comments in there; minimum 15 car entry required for the switch to electric in 2020 and potential for some form of international Championship for "conventional" Supercars.

I guess the source was at that meeting Pucher wrote about and the things stated in the article were some of the things they weren't allowed to tell.

"Those bodyshells are expected to be marginally wider than existing cars, and could feature larger rear aerodynamic devises." Seems like they might be moving in a similar direction to that of WRC.

The sport jutsr dies a little more every year since IMG took over.

Just hope that the real rallycross can exist.

This is all about money and manufacturers, nothing else, not fans, not tv, not anything, just money.

Csucsu confirmed that he has signed with Ots Racing to drive a Fabia R5 based Supercar. Can't see anything official confirming whether he is doing the Euro or World Championship though.

Another move I don´t understand. He obviously has the money, so why he doesn´t buy an Ex-Hansen- oder Ex-Marklund-car? These cars would still be more competitive than the Skoda.

Not that I'm biased* or anything, but that Fabia looks really good. It'll be good to see more brands in the series.

*Currently driving a Skoda Superb estate... it's my fourth Skoda. Maybe a bit biased then eh?

Jean-Baptiste Dubourg confirmed in the second G-FORS Clio. Has Linnemann officially confirmed a European Championship campaign? I see a few people have mentioned it, but I haven't seen it anywhere official?

Sebastien Loeb Racing will enter a Peugeot 208 in WRX with Gregoire Demoustier. No affiliation with Peugeot apparently according to the article besides from the car being a Peugeot.

Just spotted that. Would think Demoustier would be more competitive in the Euros.

Enzo Ide confirmed on first Comtoyou Audi S1

Looks like they will do more of a testing & develloping year in an incomplete WRX program.

Comtoyou is in talks for the second car, but it's far from sure the second car will even compete in 2018

Does Ide have any experience of rallycross already? If not it's going to be a bit of a shock to the system!

No he is a long time GT racer. Multiple GT3 race winner and the 2016 Blancpain sprint race champ.
