Speaking Too Soon

I jumped the gun a bit when I listed Subaru’s WRC team for next season — Mikko Hirvonen had yet to be signed, and today, Subaru announced that Chris Atkinson would share the second works car with Stephane Sarrazin. Atkinson will drive the loose surface events, with Sarrazin piloting the Impreza on the sealed surface events. Hirvonen will likely sign a one-off deal with Ford/M-Sport, driving a 2003 spec WRC Focus for most of the season.
