No it didn't- they were reasonably cheap cars to make compared to the blind alley that grp A/ WRC has become.

They had a tendency to kill people instead.

The WRC needs a good kick up the arse. They need to adopt a complete new formula to attract both manufacturers and the media- problem is it's the chicken and the egg scenario, you won't get one without the other and vice versa.

Wish they would let me sort it out. I would have it back on it's feet in no time.

I worked with Ford on RS200 and they bitched like hell about having to build 200 of the damn things as an upfront investment.

And Gp A was intended as a low cost alternative...and then creep, creep more technology and cost.
