In an earlier Post I commented that Vladimir Antonov had bought a WRC team.
Saab’s friend and rally enthusiast Vladimir Antonov said to have cleared North One Sport’s (a WRC team) outstanding debt and is providing significant investment for the future.
It seems like I didn’t get the real story. 🙁
North One Sport is not a WRC team but the promoter of WRC, just as the company of Berni Ecclestone is the promoter of F1.
The main problem of WRC now is the lack of participating brands, that is why I think that Antonov will help Saab build a car suitable for WRC, in order to get at least another brand in the competition.
And looking at the cars that are currently competing in WRC (Ford Fiesta, Citroen DS3, maybe Mini Countryman), a Saab entry in WRC must be a 9-2 and not a 9-3.
Time will tell.
