i would lve to see the irc steal the 1.6 turbo idea before the wrc managed to get it together. Because if thet is the man in charge of promoting the show were in for another couple of boring years im afraid,

a sales man who turns down sales thich exceed his target should be at the very least fired on the spot and preferably shot,

They can't as the FIA invent the classes and IRC just choose which one they want to use.

But if WRC don't want more than 4 manufacturers then IRC can have the "spare" ones :)

Loeb said that the 1.6T will be very fast but will have less torque than the current WRcars.

And how many other Manufacturers are building 1600T cars?

Not much use if it's Ford v Citroen...AGAIN!!

Reading between the lines of some comments I have spotted, I see a chance of a Prodrive built VW. But VW, we may as well have Suzuki or Hyundai back, with VW it will still be a fight Ford v Citroen.

That said, I recon the step from S2000 to 1600T is quite small, existing S2000 manufacturers may just do it. But then what are the rules. If 1600T is restricted to WRC only, why should they convert an S2000 to 1600T?

But when can we expect that FIA have agreed on the 2011 tech regs ?

This is getting close to a scandal !

Since it appears Todt has won the presidential election and the way Mosley, Ecclestone and co pushed for him, I tend to believe it's the same people in the background, the much needed change in the FIA is not going to happen at all...

...and to this subject here, messing up with 38 u-turns on a decission of new tech rules getting close to a scandal? Of course it will be, this is the FIA!

If the FIA is so reliant on influence from behind what meaningful changes could Ari have made?

I've been following VW with interest and am wondering what Piech is doing expanding VW at this time. Does anyone think he may be serious about rally?

"If the FIA is so reliant on influence from behind what meaningful changes could Ari have made?"

A lot more I think. It can only be speculation. But Vatane3n promised a lot of change, while Todt kept most of the Mosley gang, like Surinder Thatthi and Mosley F1 adjutant Alan Donnelly. The way Mosley and Ecclestone massively pushed for Todt and against Vatanen, so much so that doubts came up this is not a democratic election, and the fact just showed up, makes me believe Mosley and co pushed for Todt because with Todt nothing will change and they can still pull the strings in the background, while with Ari this would have been different.

VW still wants semi automatic gearboxes so they can promote their DSG technology.

Then again I like the paddle shift gear boxes since they look so cool. The joystick units in the S2000's don't look as nice.
