sad to see all of the japanese works shops pulling out of WRC.

subaru has been an underdog since i started watching a few years ago, and suzuki just got started, but i think having underdogs to root more must have made it more entertaining.

the idea of watching loeb/citroen and hirvonen/ford battle it out with only the odd privateer subaru or mitsubishi occasionally making inroads into the top 8 points places sounds boring, and the idea of watching solberg drive something else just seems wrong.

hopefully, this is a sign of the economic times and not a shift in focus of subaru's corporate strategy, because in my mind, rally made them what they are as a company...
