New VW Polo S2000, not your usual turn-key rally car

  • Nick Alterskye

    The SA Rally championship is a great championship – very competitive with up to 20 Super 2000 cars per event. Surprised more young European drivers don’t use it for practise and getting experience. All gravel events on good roads with mixture of gravel surfaces. Strong manufacturers in VW, Toyota, and Ford (although Ford are private teams with big budget and strong drivers). More reason why SA needs a WRC event – strong new car sales for likes of Mini, Ford, VW, PSA etc.
    Toyota and VW sell over 100k cars per annum, Ford over 40k cars per annum, PCSA up to 7000 per annum. Nowhere near as big as numbers in Europe and Americas, but growing economy so should have an event for strategic reasons.

    Re above – Toyota and VW sell over 100k EACH – not combined.
