    Gronholm to make WRC comeback !

    Marcus Gronholm is to come out of retirement following the announcement that the two-time World Rally Champion will take part in the fourth round of the 2009 season in Portugal.

    The Finn, who retired from the WRC at the end of the 2007 season, had been linked to a possible return to the series this season with Subaru before the Japanese manufacturer elected to pull out of the sport.

    However, he will now get the chance to compete in the Impreza WRC2008 after agreeing a deal with Prodrive to contest the Portuguese event.

    “Prodrive approached and offered me a chance to compete in Portugal with the Subaru Impreza WRC2008 rally car,” Gronholm said. “After having a test in Norway, I decided to take the challenge.”

    Gronholm added however that his decision to compete in Portugal wasn't a sign that he planned to return to the series on a full-time basis – although he will consider his feelings after the event.

    “When I made a decision to retire from the WRC, I didn't say never to coming back,” he said. “However WRC Portugal is just a single event and nothing more. After the rally I have to analyze my feelings and to see what happens next.

    In the sports world they should change the word RETIREMENT to VACATION. Will be good to see Marcus again though.

    Why is the most simple livery the most flattering on the GR chassis?

    I'm glad to see Gronholm back (I've been using computers since 1983 and still can't quickly figure out how to make my keyboard make an umlaut...).

    Blue/white livery usually looks good on most anything. I'd have liked if they'd put more blue on the fenders to emphasize the flaring though.
