    Looks very similar to the Spencer Sport Mitsubishi Mirage in shape and size.

    The sound of the Corsa R5 video, leads me to think that they used the RML WTCC engine.Very, very similar sound to the Cruze.

    I don't know if this is new information or not but Yves Matton is quoted in MN as saying the planned homologation date for the C3 R5 car is Jan 1st 2018. Same day as the Proton for what it's worth.

    More news coming in the summer, but Matton very keen to stress it will be a completely new car, with different people working on it to the relatively lacklustre DS3 R5. New technical partners too. He also said they won't run a works team like Skoda.

    It looks like new Proton's strategic partner is not PSA but Geely. According to E15.cz Geely will take 49,9% of Proton in July.

    Gelly owns Volvo (100%) and now Lotus (51%) and Proton (49,9%) and they’re only the 8th or 9th largest Chinese auto maker…China wealth is mindblowing!
    The good news is that they’ve made Volvo return to motorsport (WTCC) and now they can help carrying out Proton/MEM WRC2 project.
    Btw, according to the news, PSA refused the deal because they wanted a majority share.

    Presumably these two will be VW test drivers for Polo R5.. otherwise weird choice for Skoda.

    ... although both are also Fabia R5 customers.
