    Ogier oops



    Reports indicate that Ogier had an off during testing.

    It is interesting to me that Malcolm Wilson's Fords do not carry sponsor decals. Does this mean sponsorship is still under negotiation? I don't recall seeing any announcement yet.

    These things look way faster than the 2L cars of ten years ago. They make the Group B cars look tame.

    The restrictor's will increase from 34 (another article claimed from 33 mm) to 36 mm, the questimated power increase is likely to be from 230 Kw to 280 Kw. Much more aero freedom and active center differentials are back in. The changes may shave up to 2 sec a km in time.

    The new cars maybe much faster, but nothing (imo) will make the Group B cars look take. They were beasts that had to be manhandled and respected or they would bite, but lacking the refinement of today's cars. Then there was the sound....
