rv65 is on a distinguished road

VW could use the same 1.6T petrol engine they are going to be using in the WTCC and use it in their WRC program. It would be nice to see Skoda and VW compete in the WRC together, even if the Fabia WRC is used by privateers. I even think the new Mini WRC would be more competitive than a VW WRCar. VW will announce their decision after Dakar 2011. They will compete in the Dakar 2011, but for 2012, there would be new regs and they might move the Dakar back to Africa, which VW doesn't find appealing. WRC could work for them, but VW hasn't had successful rally programs in the past save for Dakar.
