Well, MINI are doing a limited-run campaign for 2011 with a view to a full effort from 2012. And Saab have been tipped to enter their own limited-run season from 2012, possibly with a 9-1 or 9-2. The problem is that someone needs to be able to challenge Sebastien Loeb on a regular basis. I was hoping Ogier might defect to Ford to keep things interesting, but he’s staying with Citroen.
I’m also wondering what’s happened to Ken Block. I know the Monster WRC team was doing only selected events this year, but I haven’t heard boo from him of late. And with his early exit at X-Games 16, I have to wonder if he’s not simply one-hit wonder.
