WRC 2

Lets hope the 2014 version of WRC 2 will be as good as it looks to be. It has the potential to be the feeder class for young talent, but also a class for older drivers that are referred to as Gentleman Drivers.

It could also be a class for WRC drivers that did not get a seat, and will use R5 to fight their way back into a factory seat again.

How many cars will we see in WRC 2 in 2014 in your opinion?

I doubt it will be as many as in 2013, but I might be wrong. The only people I have heard doing a WRC2 campaign so far are Bernardo Sousa and Kristian Sohlberg, both in Fiesta R5s.

Anyway, I would have thought the ERC is the better feeder class. Neuville, Mikkelsen, Meeke all come out of IRC/ERC, when have you ever seen a PWRC/SWRC/WRC2 guy make it big?

I agree with you Chris.
But in many countries the ERC is struggeling to get the same attention as the WRC series. lets hope more northern european countries start using ERC as the area to expose themselves to sponsors and WRC teams!

I agree here. In ERC you fight for overall results and get more TV than you do in WRC2. But the ERC still seems very Eastern Europe heavy, what I am missing in a Scandinavian/Nordic round.
