President of Suzuki Sport, Nobuhiro 'Monster' Tajima, explained: "In addition to this, it is Suzuki's intention to enter several WRC events with the SX4 World Rally Car during the 2007 season, for the purpose of testing and development. However whether this can take place will be subject to discussions with the World Motorsport governing body, the FIA."
"The ongoing development and testing of the SX4 World Rally Car will be managed and co-ordinated at the Headquarters of Suzuki Sport Co. Ltd. in Japan, in collaboration with Suzuki Motor Corporation.
"Suzuki Sport Europe (UK) will continue to function as the Junior World Rally Championship team base and is fully focussed on winning the 2006 J-WRC title.
