4 years ago Ford tried to make a showing and brought Markus Gronholm, 2 time WRC Champion, out of retirement. he got second. Ford hasn't returned since.

I don't see any other mfg's lining up to enter a factory team next year though. Chevy is concentrating on the American LeMan's series as are Porsche, BMW, SRT (Dodge), Mazda, etc... Pike's Peak doesn't get enough coverage nationally let alone internationally unfortunately.
