Default Team Sidvin India - India's first PWRC team

After F1 looks like we now have a WRC team.

Wow, this is a big step for Naren and Leela. I still feel they should have done one full year of PWRC to learn the ropes. Using WRC as a learning exp is going to be pricey.

Tommi Makinnen will be supplying the car to the team and the team will debut at the Arcopolis Rally in Greece.

Is this the same as Team Rally India that took part in the APRC?

dont get confused guys ......hes driving the production class group N and he will be driving a subaru prepared and with full back up from tommi makkinen racing........PWRC drivers can drive only six events they can choose which event they want to do and score points so i think naren will not be driving in sweden and argentina...........@ mpower they did the entire APRC season last year

Just to expand.... 6 out of 8 PWRC nominated WRC events.

Did they not do all but one event, as required by APRC last year?
