Its the policy of GMC not to release the entry list before the programme is out, I know i know they released it last year but this was a mistake that could easily happen again. Be patient all will be revealed the week of the rally.

As far as I know, JJ looked at a Xsara WRC and it was wild money, he looked at the S11 and was equally not impressed money wise and he tried a 2005 focus which he settled on. If he bought his old one back or not , I do not know or would it bother me one jot, NO, as long as he is out in something on his home international, be it a Nova 1600 or RS 50TH
Eoiny should know, or be able to find out what JJ has
So DMG has a focus, I thought it was a Xsara.
From what i hear JJ has a new 05 focus to play with, He lookd @ the xsara and scooby but they were unreal money! Boland is using RS 50TH for the Monte but getting a new 05 focus after that, dunno whats happening RS 50TH.
