“Or ip ea consecte consequis nullamet wis ercin euis nulputpat nullaorem” his outside chance of taking the title, as he is not allowed to drive on the roads in Spain because he is still 17 years old. He therefore is unable to challenge for the Junior world title because he is ... TOO young. Karl has been running under the entry of World Rally Team Estonia and for this event they have nominated fellow Estonia Martin Kangur at the wheel of a Honda Civic Type R. Until the start of this year the Type R was not allowed in JWRC series because it’s bodywork was just too long to qualify as a suitable car for Junior drivers! The FIA spotted the anomaly and changed the rules for 2010 to allow the Honda to be eligible but, until now, there has not been a Type R in the series! There are two subsidiary titles to be gained in Spain. Firstly the Rookie (newcomer) driver award, which will go to Harry Hunt the moment he qualifies as a starter on the event. The British driver competes in a Fiesta R2. The other prize waiting to be confirmed is the Federation Cup, which the Dutch federation will gain when Weijs starts the rally. There is no confirmation as yet of a time schedule when the JWRC’s replacement championship will be announced. Activity levels at the top may be reduced compared with the recent rallies in Germany and then France, but there will be one special happening. At the same time the WRC event is running, there will be the ‘shoot-out’ for drivers for the FIA-sponsored programme of WRC rallies in 2011 which will replace former Pirelli Star Driver programme. Plans for these activities have only just been released by the FIA, which are aimed at developing the careers of promising aspiring drivers of the future. The original plans were for no fewer than 18 young drivers – and 15 names have now been released, this time including two lady drivers, to have the chance to show their paces and their aptitudes to a panel of judges. This system is expected to replace the successful Pirelli Star Driver programmes run in 2009 and 2010. 44
