    McRae won't be in WRC in 2004, nor will Burns. Trouble with comprehension?

    Colin McRae, one of the best drivers in the WRC is basically out of a seat for next year because there were none available on top teams (Ford, Subaru, Citroen, Peugeot)

    It was looking like McRae was going to spend the season off from the WRC to do Rally Raids (Paris-Dakar) and some people mentioned of him doing some sportscar and touring car racing.


    :wtc: about Burns.

    I know I had made a bunch of colorful comments about him before the Rally GB cause I said he probably chickened out of it so he could blame his loss of the drivers championship on something else.


    Get better Richy. :x: :bigthumb: :hs:

    I can pretty much guarantee you Colin will get the nod for Burns' seat now. Subaru will need another top notch driver opposite of Petter Solberg, and McRae is really the only other top driver out there thats available.

    Skoda has a chance!

    That's too bad for Boo-urns. Hopefully he'll make a full recovery.

    That was from the older rules where teams were allowed to have 3 drivers. The 3rd driver though had to have not scored a podium finish in 3 years.

    Now the FiA scrapped that and went to a 2 driver rule with no restrictions, like how it was a few years ago. So McRae could go to Subaru since Burns wont be able to participate next year. Subaru will be running two cars all season and right now they're only available driver is Solberg since Makinen just retired.

    what about Nicky Grist? has he found a ride for next year, or will he just sit on the side and talk shit again next season?

    With the $ he's making for commentating and not risking his life anymore, I think he's more than content to talk up the rallies instead of co-driving them.



    Someone else I'd like to see take the seat at Subaru, Freddy Loix. Course that depends on what Peugeot does with Rovenpera and Loix. But I think the Belgian Waffle would do good with a good car under him.

    Why not have McRae replace Burns?

    Well, I'm guessing this is whats gonna happen, Colin takes Burns' seat.

    Course its not that simple. Colin was looking forward to doing some non-WRC stuff like the Paris-Dakar rally and some road racing events (24 Le Mans, touring cars, etc)
