From WorldRallyNews.com:


Mitsubishi has pulled out of the World Rally Championship with immediate effect.

The decision has stunned the team's drivers, who were preparing to begin testing for the Monte Carlo Rally.

However, the Japanese concern has pledged to return in 2004. The withdrawal is to give time to concentrate on producing a more competitive car. After taking four consecutive world titles with Tommi Makinen, the switch to the latest Lancer and World Rally Car regulations has proved a severe disappointment, the team's best result since the WR Car's launch 14 months ago being a fifth place.



Hopefully this puts more emphasis on the local championships. In addition want to bet they come back with the Colt? Importantly a change in program car could dramatically change the Lancer's Evolution (could not resist the play on words).

Disappointing News,
Mike

My lame attempt to say "what will happen to the US program"

Now that Hyundai has made it official it looks like the Subaru SCCA ProRally Series.


Well I have always wanted an AWD spec class, just wish I could afford it.

Let me get this straight...
Mitsubishi.. Hyundai.. Proton.. isn't this basically one company?
So why is it so surprising to everyone that this is happening?
