** The deal, which is being brokered by Block's management team Wasserman Media Group, is reckoned to be one of the most significant in the sport's history.**

They are not shy! Or there IS coke, as Germans claim, in that drink....
However, Ken will be driving WRC in the States because that crash show (stadium Xreme, or something) will be part of the WRC. So sad WRC has gone so low....
American Nick Craw, the FIA vice prez, is behind this. Among FORD and FIAT, which's coming here again to get those "Fix It Again Tony" jokes going (I like 500 Abarth, though!).
What are odds it succeeds? Nick's an ex SCCA boss and SCCA run rally down.

Yeah Topi, that sentence pretty much confirmed that the story was written by WMG. They plug themselves and have the usual overinflated sense of self importance.
It'll still be cool to have a US based/funded team though. Better than that frat boy South African kid.
