That sucks. Hope this sport doesn't die out. Most difficult Motorsport IMO.
Kyle Kloewer Oct 17, 2012
Well just cuz they're out doesn't mean they would be in it. Just fed wont supply them with cars is all
Constantin Jacob Oct 17, 2012
They're out and VW is starting with a Polo? This sport just died
Jason Brown Oct 16, 2012
Shelby, have you been to a NASCAR race and the pre-race events? If you have, then you will know it survives...
Bryan Wesly Pascual Oct 16, 2012
Oh great, Hyundai might dominate! Please dont let that happen.
William Downs Oct 16, 2012
Ford stopped backing the teams, the company that actually build the fiesta and races them are still gonna be racing for a couple years, fords just not supplying the money anymore
Bill Estep Jr Oct 16, 2012
Isn't or didn't ford jus make a huge financial gain when they introduced that insane fiesta wit ken block n they even have that one series on YouTube called life in the fast lane
David Justice Oct 15, 2012

Why Anglo Saxon? It should be Anglo German. Anglo Saxon is completely different.
Malachi Monteiro Oct 15, 2012
Damn, I was Remember the work mini put into it for it's WRC debut, and now, it is dead
Shelby Cassandra Oct 15, 2012
Why does NASCAR survive and this can't? I would think that WRC would be popular.
Nick Benz Oct 16, 2012
This is sad. Its because WRC isnt as popular as F1 and nascar. Personally id rather watch rally cars fly through the woods than a bunch of huge tubs go fast and turn left.
Josh Banning Oct 15, 2012
Don't see why they would seeing ad he's not very good
Anthony Calderaro Oct 15, 2012

Tanton Stoneman Oct 15, 2012

Again read the article, ford just isn't backing the teams any more, teams that wanna still race the fiesta can, just ford won't be picking up the bill for the cars.

Austin Jackson Oct 15, 2012
What about Faust that is his big thing
Nick Benz Oct 16, 2012
Whats weird is that little mirror. Its so far back
Jason Brower Oct 15, 2012
No, not really. The weight is on that tire, so any slide is going to wear that tire the most, especially if the driver is powering out of the corner.
Quinn Conner Oct 15, 2012
Smoking the outside tire? Weird.
