    Is it surprising? I don't see that hard competition when I look at the results.

    Well, it's Griebel's first season in a R5 car and I expected more competition from Lopez and van Woensel.

    Not the most reliable source, but Rallye Magazin is saying Opel will return with a R5 Corsa in 2019. Not with Holzer but in a joint project with Citroen Racing, as the car will be based on the C3 R5.

    If so that's a shame. Holzer did a good job with the R2 Adam and Gunter Holzer seemed to have great passion for their R5 project. To drop them for the lost boys at Citroen Racing is quite an insult, but not unpredictable when you consider the bigger picture...

    Much better to have a manufacturer backed R5 project though. Helps if you can get the car homologated.

    Yep, Citroen Racing recent tech records are hard to praise, but it’s fair to say that the DS3 R5 was heavily based on Peugeot Sport work with the 208 T16 and despite the long time they took to improve both cars reliability, they eventually managed to make them competitive.

    Btw, I'd also regret not to see Holzer’s Corsa in action, but this rumour seems the most viable (and rational) option: ’18 street Corsa will use current C3 platform and cooperation between brands, including their racing operations, is the main asset of PSA/GM Europe fusion.
