Oliver Solberg has been let go by Hyundai so will be interesting to see what his team have planned next for him. A season at M Sport in a Rally2 car and maybe one or two outings in the big car? Monster Energy money and Papa Solberg's connections with the team may help grease the wheels.

Ollie Solberg was out on the Cambrian Rally yesterday 29/10, in North Wales.

He won by nearly 2 minutes which I guess goes to show that he is at a very high level and above the top BRC contenders

dirtfish reported
Wilson said the lack of consistency in terms of podiums and points was the driving factor in the change of policy for next season.

so if thats the case Gus will be leaaving too then?

Unfortunately not a surprise (despite being a disappointment), but echoes of Meeke - fast and capable of great things/running at the top of the field, he did have a tendency to properly bin a car and these are not cheap beasts to repair, especially for a privateer team such as m-sport.

Is evans to m sport speculation or confirmed Billy? I’d have him back but he seems to have lost his mojo a bit this year after the near miss on winning the title.

That’s not the worst group to lump him in with - immensely talented driver and a fundamentally good guy and may well just be bad luck as you have correctly highlighted he started the season strongly and still finished well ahead of greensmith- the margin between success and disaster is tiny but the very best like ogier and loeb seem to find the right side of that knife edge more often than not.

a conspiracy theorist might propose m sport seeing tanak as better bet than breen, and he surely wont sit for long without a contract...
