    It won two years ago. Granted, it was a different version, but McRae still took it home. The only reason that it can't win the manufacturers' title is that Peugeot runs THREE factory backed rides, and the rest inly two. Yes, Delecour is the third Focus driver in the WRC, but since he's not factory backed, he cannot bring in points for Ford, only drivers points for himself. Notice how Ford is always first runner up.

    Err, rallyfanatic, just how much of a rally fanatic are you?

    Your post seems to indicate that you believe McRae won the driver's championship in '99. He didn't, Makinen did. The Focus is yet to win either the driver's or manufacturer's championship.

    Also, only two cars from any team can be nominated for manufacturer's points. A team can run, 3, 7, or 186 cars if they want, only two can score manufacturer's points.

    The only reason Ford has yet to take the manufacturer's is because of McRae's inconsistency. If he could score points as consistently as Sainz, Ford would have a much better chance of taking the manufacturer's crown. <IMG SRC="http://www.supercars.net/servlets/cMsg/html/emoticons/smile.gif">

    The Focus has been one of the most successful WRC cars in the last 2-3 years. They would have won both the drivers and manufacturers titles in 2001 if McRae hadn't rolled, and if Ford hadn't pulled out of Rally Great Britain out of repect for injuring 11 people in a corner. McRae may not be as consistant as Sainz but he always seems to end the year with more pionts.

    Why don't you learn how to type a coherent sentence, then maybe I will even consider your argument as a rational thought. An insider's hint on keyboarding: The spacebar is that big long thing on the bottom of the keyboard. For instructions on its uses, visit your local english class.

    Also, your "Beast from the East" (???) Integra would last about 6 seconds on a rally course before it spun out and slammed into a tree or cracked its oil pan because it was not built for going over jumps and around hairpins at 100km/h. Thank you for giving us your point of view on Rally Racing by mentioning an Integra Type R. I'm sure this shows us what kind of guy you really are. Dumb. Put down "Honda Tuner" and work on your English first.<!-- Signature -->

    thats like saying that just because the knicks are paying their players more than twice the nba salary cap that they should win the championship every year. <!-- Signature -->
     
  8. Re: if its so great thn why cant it win the WRC?

    Because Peugeot has a better team. The only reason that Ford gets even close is because of Sainz. He gets points in every race. McRae alwayz crashes and shit because he tries to push the car too hard.

    Look at the team's histories. as far as the manufacturers of the cars currently in the WRC, Peugeot has won the most with 5 Manufacturers championships under their belt, Subaru is second with 3 Manufacturers titles, while Ford has a mere 1 Manufacturers championship, which was obtained in 1979.

    As far as manufacturers not currently in the WRC, I believe the Lancia Delta, Austin Mini, and there might be more I can't think of right now, all have far more wins than any of the current WRC contenders.

    "if its so great thn why cant it win the WRC?" haha, i like the way it was worded, and its not a lie at all. speakin of which, what car was racing when ford DID win the whole 1 manu. title?
     
  17. Re: if its so great thn why cant it win the WRC?

    I guess YOU aren't much of a rally fanatic, as 1) for that year, only two drivers could be nominated for points in any one rally, 2) since that season, Subaru has only run two cars in each rally, 3) since 2002, points are nominated by which two cars of each manufacturer do the best.
