Motor Sport News - - Interview: Chris Haird -

It seems very ap­pro­pri­ate that, as we round off the 2016 sea­son, the first glimpses are com­ing of the 2017 World Rally Cham­pi­onship cars, with both Toy­ota and M-sport tak­ing the cov­ers off their new ma­chines to join Hyundai, which re­vealed the i20 the week be­fore.

This is­sue is full of re­flec­tions of the sea­son just gone, in­clud­ing our defin­ing mo­ments of the year, but there is plenty to be ex­cited about look­ing to 2017. If the WRC cars go any­where near as good as they look, the WRC could be on the cusp of some­thing spe­cial.

Mo­tor­sport News has also got some big things up its sleeve in 2017 – not least of all work­ing with new own­ers at the Mo­tor­sport Net­work. MN is about to en­ter a new chap­ter and we hope you will en­joy the ex­cit­ing times that lay ahead for your favourite weekly mo­tor­sport news­pa­per.

In the mean­time, we hope you en­joy our spe­cial bumper is­sue, and en­joy the fes­tive pe­riod. The next is­sue of Mo­tor­sport News will be on sale on De­cem­ber 28. Matt James, Editor
