The two have finished 4th and 5th respectively in last year's championship and will now try to secure the 2009 P-WRC title with new teams. Sandell will now compete for The Red Bull Rally Team on a new S2000-based Skoda Fabia.
Apart from the two aforementioned drivers, Patrick Flodin is also a name to be considered for this year's title race. The Swedish driver – competing, just like last year, for Uspensky Rally Tecnika team – will use a private Subaru Impreza WRC throughout this year's P-WRC programme and will seek his first title in career.
Czech Republic's Martin Semerad and New Zealand's Mark Tapper are two of the new names making their way into the P-WRC this season, as they both graduated into the series after winning the Pirelli Star Driver competition.
