    Ford Fiesta achieves FIA Regional Homologation

    Webzine, rally.com.au reports that the Britek Motorsport built Fiestas have achieved FIA homologation for competition in the Asia-Pacific region. The article also hints that the Auris (Corolla) homologation is not too far away.

    Why would the Auris be homologated if it is being fully FIA homologated in South Africa, this application is already in and as far as i know virtually complete.

    Good question! The article only hinted at the Auris homologation. It may have even been referring to the homolgation emanating from South Africa, though the cars currently running in Australia were developed independently, AFAIK. If it is a separate homologation it does seem redundant.
    The Fiesta's homologation is a 'regional' one, which I understand requires a special dispensation from the FIA, the aim of which is to promote regional motor sport. The actual process is not explained in any FIA regulations. There have been numerous previous instances of this 'regional' homologation.
    IIRC, several years ago there were three separate homologations of the same VW Golf model on that year's homologation list. One in Germany, one in South Africa and one in China!!! There was a notation next to the latter two stating that such cars could only be used within their respective regions.

    Im not really up to date with the ins and outs of FIA homologation, but do understand that SA given the go ahead by Toyota Japan to acquire the full FIA homologation.

    I can say that the SA version is very impressive, i incidently co-drive a lower class version of the Auris which has the same build quality which is awesome. I expect the Auris will make its way to Europe fairly soon.
