In the last round of the season 2012 coming to an end, the excitement doesn't seem to end with nearly 17 WRC cars and the rest of the folks fielding in other categories. Dani Sordo's entry seems to be there, but let it be there and not just on the list/paper. Mini WRC officially is also signing off the mainstream rallying and it is the last drive for the Spaniard, though in a privateer team of Prodrive. The coming season will see a huge shuffle in the driver/codriver's lineup with new VW WRC team entering and Mini WRC exiting from the arena.
Spain's Catalonian round is a special one with the season closing it is even more special. The stages were done in both asphalt and gravel for different days of the event and is the highlight of the event and a challenge to the teams & the drivers together. The drivers have to quickly adapt for the changing road surface, and the technicians teams in preparing the cars from altogether a different specs in a relatively short span of time.
