On a more positive note, it appears that Eurosport will be stepping in to take over TV coverage and promotion of the WRC, with the FIA having cancelled the North One contract due to the Antonov mess. Good news, but certainly the WRC could have done without all this negative publicity.
I preferred the ONEHD coverage with Paul King.
I heard Mini might only participate in 7 rallies, 5 Europe and 2 long hauls. God i hope this is not true. This whole fiasco is hurting both Mini and BMW's image.
