    Will be a walk in the park for Honda this year.

    Real shame that Ford is out especially with Citroen showing interest as well it would be a welcome addition in the field of obsolete cars.

    Why is Volvo not entering with the new V40?
  3. You mean 'walkover', don't you?
  4. I wouldn't fully count out the LADA. James Thompson did some promising lap times during practice at Hungaroring. With the new car it is likely Honda won't have too much of a problem with the Chevrolets.

    For Volvo. The problem seems to be the owner. They simply don't want them in WTCC. The C30 was chosen as the car already existed. They just had to adapt it to the new fuel and the new engine. The V40 would be an option. Maybe they change their minds if one or two of the roumored manufacturers enters. (e.g. Nissan/Renault, Subaru, [private] Mercedes, Toyota)
