FIA does something useful, creates the R-GT Rally Cup

I've been ranting about the Jean Todt and his way to lead the FIA for quite some time. Weak is the best word to describe his efforts in F1, where he doesn't really make an impact and is unable to solve their financial problems.

Well lookit here — the tiny hot-hatch-loving kids across the pond may have a new toy for the 'bahns and 'stradas. A new version of VW Motorsport's Polo GTI Cup may be afoot.
