Hmmmm.......it'll be great for FOA in my opinion. Whoever he shares a car with better get some insurance though....he's not the best at keeping the cars on the road!!! :s1:

I'd love to see his face when he steps out of a Falcon and realises what he's been missing out on!

Would do wonders for publicity too, get some Rally guys watching the V8's.

He'd want to get straight back in the Focus WRC....

This is pretty much USELESS...............

It's been done before with Scott Pruett, getting drivers in from overseas doesn't work.......... Sure, they may be great drivers in their cars, but that doesn't mean they be good in a Supercar......

It didn't work once; therefore it will never work. Good one! Just because they are from another country doesn't mean they can't drive. I'll see your Scott Pruett, and raise you a Greg Murphy and an Allan Moffat.

If it comes off, and he gets a half decent car, he will suprise a lot of people. Rally drivers tend to adapt more readily to racing than race drivers to rallying. George Fury, Colin Bond, Neal and Rick Bates, to name but a few, cut their teeth in rallying.
