    I've been wondering, has Holzer done anything with their Corsa beyond the filming days they did last and showing it on static display at a few events last year? I've haven't seen anything of any actual further testing. Did they give up after Opel showed no interest and/or got sold to PSA?

    PSA clearly said no unless Opel starts to generate profit. That's it.

    Skoda are closing their Fabia R5 twitter account and redirecting people to @MotorsportSkoda instead.. may or may not be something to read into that.

    Or maybe they start generate profit after start producing competitive rallycars, competing in WRC2 and ERC. Like other manufacturers, showing your sportive brand to the market.

    In some cases one might ask, which came first, profit or engagement in rallying?, so to speak.

    Nobody said it loud and there is no 100% proof but there are far too many indirect signs that they are working on WRC return in 2020.

    If this is true I hope that Kopecky gets a seat in the team. He would deserve it, after this long time with the team.
