alfa 147 in world rally championship?

A staff member of Fiat/Alfa Romeo Ireland told me the other day that Alfa Romeo are entering the WRC next year with a 2 litre turbo 147.Has anyone heard of these rumours and if so are they true.I think the 147 would make a great WRC car and I hope they will enter the WRC--Pat Doyle Ireland

I don't think it's gonna happen and if it is, then it will be by some private racers. FIAT's plans are quite simple: Alfa for track racing, Lancia for serious rallying (in the not so distant future) and FIAT for ... well, driving around town hoping it doesn't break down...

Why is it so strange to have Alfa Romeo in rallying? Alfa Romeo rallied its cars in the 50s, 60s, 70s and 80s. A GTV6 even won the Australian Rally Championship in the 80s. It's all in the preparation and Alfa Romeo know how to build competitive race cars.
