    According to the info from ewrc the new Fabia R5 engine (afaik scheduled for April homologation) features roughly 5 kW (7 Hp) extra power, it shall be lighter, more durable and resistant to shocks and the rebuild period is reasonably prolonged from 2000 to 3000 km.

    Maybe br21 has more info on that, but I think new 208 road car will be presented later this year, and Famin said a year ago that they intend to do an R5 car from it, so if that's still the plan, I can't really see any major upgrade this year for the old car.

    Why not, testing upgraded version in old body, and then put into new one, and start developing 2gen 208 from more advanced level.

    I think they are already doing that, they are calling it a Citroen C3 R5 ��.

    C3 R5 has basically nothing in common with DS3/208. From main components electronics supplier is the same, different transmission, different dampers, etc. From what I know for DS3/208 no upgrades planned. That evo2 kit with again hydraulic power steering is quite OK now, and they focus on C3, they plan to run two or three cars on Corsica.
    I heard the same info about engine of Fabia, so some step forward.

    Not sure if it mentioned here, but Jaeger/ Mikkelsen will drive a i20 R5 in Numedalsrally, Norway 24 feb.

    Jaeger will drive, and Mikkelsen read notes!!!

    I hope that Hyundai Norway have bought a car, to be used here locally!

    I think that this info should be posted more in thread European National Rallying.

    I think ToughMac meant the mechanicals from C3 R5 might find their way into a new Peugeot (209?) R5.

    Yep thats what I meant, I could be wrong but are the DS3 R5 and the first generation of the 208 R5 basically mechanically the same only in different bodyshells? I would also expect 'V.A.G' to do the same with the Polo R5 and the next generation of Fabia R5, it keeps the costs down even though it does take from the individuality of the different cars.
