Who will win WRC 2006?

I'd say it's ford for manufactures title, well there is not many others,
and ford also (Gronholm) world champion).
Ford has now two very strong drivers, had car before already.
Solberg second and Loeb Third.
What You Think Who Will Win.?????

Just to let you know there will be 3 Citroen Xsara WRCs and 3 Peugeot 307 WRCs, even though the teams that have those cars are privateers, they are both factory backed . I think Loeb will win the driver's championship.

solberg being the only person in a completely familiar racing car, i think its almost certain to say that he's about to grab his second world championship.

I do Know That, still they are not factory cars, also they said that ford is faster car than it was before, also peugeot doesn't do anything, if Gronholm and Martin
both said that it's impossoble to drive that car faster that suspension is impossible and car simply sucks,.
Also Solberg has lot's of bad luck.
Too bad McRae didn't get back .
He was doing pretty good with that little Skoda.

Loeb will still be in with a very good chance, I assume he will not be let down by the factory too much in order not to frustrate him for the 2007 season. Would the rules allow a participation of the C4 already during the season for testing purposes?

I thought designated drivers for the WRC were factory drivers only, just in order to leave a slim opportunity for privateers to score points. Otherwise, who should "desginate" a privateer?

WRC == "recognised" factory car current or older
P-WRC == Production WRC
J-WRC == Junior WRC

Each has different rules for the CAR and points awarded in the CLASS but points from final rally positions give driver points that lead to the overal championship. So in theory a P-WRC or J-WRC could win the WRC. But given the machine differences highly unliekly

http://www.fia.com/resources/documen...WRC_regs_a.pdf
http://www.fia.com/resources/documen...WRC_regs_a.pdf


There is a seeding on applications which favours factory supported cars, but beyond that a privateer is not differntiated.


EDT: all dependant on the driver paying the registration for the events and championship !! So some cars/drivers enter and aren't eligible for points.
