The FIA want bigger cars for the WRC, so maybe this could be a contender

I'd love to see the GT86 in rear wheel drive form rather than 4 wheel drive cars return to the WRC to get the "slowly sideways" action going, but too few rear wheel drive cars are made these days.

Toyota Motorsport is building a 2-litre RWD version for international rallying. The purpose of the 4WD car is unknown.

bigger cars that means ford could bring back the focus and that means a new Focus RS road car could be built  bounce

Just read that at Rally Germany Toyota ran a GT86 in R3 spec as the course 0 car - hallelujah it was rear wheel drive! Apparently very well received by the fans.

This sounds promising...

Larger, two wheel drive cars, with mandatory flame-spitting exhausts! jocolor

Great for the spectators - not so good for the time-keepers and other marshalls, eh Chris?? Rolling Eyes

Fingers crossed - Steve

Very Happy everything rally car should be rear wheel drive, far more spectacular to watch. And as from flame spitting cars, well..................it is pretty in the dark Embarassed
