    Different times, different technical rules (all active cars before 2006 for example), very different tyres and suspension and very different conditions for design optimization through simulations. I would say that today it's less about personal inventions of the designers and more about very systematic work.

    According rallye-magazin.de Polo GTI R5 will not be homologated in August. So, debut should be in Catalunya.

    So will all R5s have a version of this document, where the last joker it has installed is noted?
    So are manufacturers and firms approved to install jokers issuing them?
    Just so byuers know what to ask the seller to show as proof.

    It looks like it's nothing more than a declaration of what is installed in the particular car to be signed by the team during scrutineering.

    Quite similar list you need to fill on every WRC/ERC event when you start with R5 car, they update it then in their system and control. Next rally you can't start with older spec than it's noted in gold book.
    That Spanish list is nice, but not actual.

    Looks like VW will delay homologation, they will not have time to reach timelines to get it ready for August 1.
    This according to Sven Smets talking to Rallye Magazine. They need more testing to be certain it is good enough on both surfaces.

    3rd C3 R5 to Josť Pedro Fontes, 4th to Simone Tempestini. After that, CitroŽn will focus on spare parts and back to cars production after.

    Peter Bijvelds bought a Fiesta R5. Drove his last rally in 2009, but was always really fast in his Mitsubishi's. Curious to see what he's going to do!
