    Awesome! Would be nice if they brought Subaru back in to the chamionship even as a privateer or semi-works team, but nice to have Atkinson back in top flight! And interesting how Block will go against the likes of Loeb, Hirvonen and Solberg.

    Yeah Im keen to see how Ken Block goes. Hes not got the driving pedigree of Atkinson, but hes still pretty good.

    American Market blaaaaaah.
    Im sure he will do ok,
    Do not shoot me here, this is just a question,
    If Atko was not Austalian (French for example) would he have a WRC seat?
    I know marketing plays a big part in all sports.
    Really enjoying watching P Solberg back in action.
