Just realized I posted this story in the wrong thread yesterday: GCK will field just two cars in South Africa as the third car is too badly damaged to fix in time. Chichiret and Marklund will be driving, Liam will be watching from the sidelines.

Forgive the double post but I saw this and thought it was a good read:

I disagree that this season has been a classic one, but I do agree that Kristoffersson isn't getting the credit he deserves.

To beat Kristoffersson and VW, you are gonna need one heck of a driver and probably manufacture support as well.

Looks like the other teams have already found an answer for South Africa: stop the VW's from docking!

They cars have arrived safely at Killarney international raceway...

As a Capetonian I had my doubts, sites I've worked on have had containers stuck at Sea for weeks because of the wind, Click image for larger version

Whatever happened to Jerome Grosset Janin? Did anything ever surface on the real reason for the split ?

I haven't read anything else about him. I recall seeing his Facebook page change its name a while ago (to just "Jerome"), but that may be completely unrelated.

Anyway Ekstrom is now leaving rallycross full time. It was great while it lasted with him

I can't really be bothered, those "new style" WRX drivers only seem to be interested or willing to drive if they have factory support and by that are willing to change everything.

I agree that these drivers has changed the sport to suit themselves as professional drivers competing for a world championship. Ekström said himself a while ago that he had always been interested in doing rallycross but that he felt that the level of it wasn't professional enough. Hansen and Solberg as well felt that rallycross could be bigger.

However, now that the sport has changed, you require factory support to win. Even Andreas Eriksson told parferme.no that he had realised this during the season. So when Ekström decides to quit, I think it's more or less because he knows that he won't be able to challenge VW for a title now with Audi gone.
