She said that their budget and other budgets were around that area last season, that's all I know. You could very well be right.

But, since there aren't numbers specifying exact costs in order to maintain a high level of competitiveness, then maybe that is enough. WRX after all is not that expensive compared to other bigger motorsport.

A positive move IMO...now just need to punt Abu Dhabi and go back to Montalegre.

Andrew Jordan tweeting that he's close to sorting an RX deal alongside his BTCC commitment. Although not clear if that's BRX, ERX or WRX.

I have some news for you all: after 2 incredible years it's time to press pause on our FIA World Rallycross Championship adventures. But this isn't the end, and as a team we continue and we work together. And yes, those future plans include me behind the wheel... 😀

We'll share more info soon but until then Id like to thank every single team member, our partners, Volkswagen Motorsport, Monster Energy and Volkswagen Sweden for the support through 2017 and 2018. We have written a fantastic story together, and there's still more chapters to come!

Does that mean Petter isn't back in World Rallycross next year or PSRXVW are not back next year?

So no VW, no Peugeot, no EKS and no OMSE.

Is anyone actually confirmed for WRX in 2019??

ES Motorsport have confirmed a Skoda: looks like they have the title in the bag at the moment!

Prodrive got three drivers and GRX is building another Hyundai, so at least six cars I think.

+1!

The bubble has burst... Or are they all trying to force IMG in to something? Let's hope they sell (all) the cars to privateers at least.

Then there's the Skodas (2 cars?) and the Munnich cars (2?) so that takes us to 10. Hansen will possibly run a couple of Peugeots, there was an A1 for Enzo Ide as well wasn't there? (I'm losing track of who's running what and where!)

However you look at it - it's not gone well for IMG has it?

I wonder if the departure of PSRXVW might actually attract entries? As long as Johan was racing overall victory looked very unlikely, but with him gone it's rather leveled the playing field.

(If Hansen manages to get hold of the 2018 specification 208's then Timmy is surely the favourite for 2019)

I think the worst part is that all those currently build are rotting away somewhere. Just like those Ford Focus. I think the Hansen's have the best chance to enter anyway. As they have been there before IMG and probably will be after.
