    Hmm, yes, is there much of a black market for Fabia R5 parts?

    Well that engine from OPC is very powerful, downsized it still could be powerful and reliable. Wonder what engine Holzer used in Opel R5.

    Sadly there will always be someone somewhere that if short of budget will be tempted. Guess there may only be an issue if there is any of the parts that need returning to the factory for a re-build. In the UK there are well documented instances of competitors funding their own motor sport activities by being involved in criminal actions. Like any other addiction some will go to any lengths to feed their habit.

    it has also 86 mm bore, same as Mitsubishi 4B11/Hyundai Theta which is a basis for very good Hyundai R5 engine. M-sport has 83 mm, Škoda has 82,5 mm, PSA EP6 has only 77 mm.

    With Raimund Baumschlager being also one of the main test drivers, BRR is going to be the prime customer team again - They will have already lots of experience with the car straight from the beginning.
