They say change is inevitable but it doesn’t mean that I like it.  We wake up this morning to the knowledge that Frenchman Sebastien Loeb will drive for the Hyundai Motorsport Team in the 2019 World Rally Championship.  The official announcement coming later today.


It won’t be a full-time gig but to have the multiple WRC champion in a Hyundai is going to be pretty cool!  Also a bit of an adjustment as we have always associated him with Citroen.  Maybe a major adjustment. Who would have thought?


The down side of this is how it will affect Hayden Paddon’s 2019 WRC program which is not good!
