Honda is currently the only other confirmed factory squad.  Lada are assumed to have a 2 car outfit with a new model introduced in 2015.  Subaru and Renault are considereing a factory team as well. The blue and gold NEEDS to be racing again.  It’s been too long.

The video also shows us the upgrades the new 2014 cars will receive.  The new cars are 100mm wider, increase wheel size to 18 from 17s., will allow more aero development and will allow a huge rear wing (parralell to roof height).  Unseen are the inclusion of Macpherson strut setups, flat floors, an increase in hp to 380hp (from ~320-330hp) and a shedding of 50 kilos.  I don’t think they’re as cool as the supertourers with modified suspension pickups, lowered engine mounts, trick differentials, trannies add electronics, dumped on 19s
