As entries draw to a close for this year's Rally Great Britain, less than 50 crews have committed to Britain's round of the World Rally Championship.
Forty-nine crews were listed as accepted entries last night, with the closing date for priority drivers already gone and the amateurs' entry ending this afternoon.
As expected, Petter Solberg is listed as a Citroen Junior Team driver, along with Aaron Burkart, who won his Citroen C4 drive after finishing second in last year's Junior World Rally Championship while driving a C2.
Top British national driver Steve Perez joins the Stobart Ford team for the Cardiff-based event. The entry is bolstered by 14 Production Car WRC runners and the five Pirelli Star Drivers.
Welshman Tom Cave, who stunned the rallying fraternity with a class win in last year's event – despite only having passed his driving test days before – returns, although the 17-year-old has still to nominate a car.
Norwegian driver Eyvind Brynildsen swaps his usual Mitsubishi Lancer to drive a Super 2000 car for the first time, as he makes his debut in a Skoda Fabia S2000 on the October 23-25 event.
Despite its low number of entries, Rally GB has managed to attract more drivers than Rally Ireland, which kick-started the World Rally Championship year with 43 cars.
