    I don't really understand VAGs Motorsport strategy tbh. Sure they can borrow a lot of stuff off Skoda to keep the development costs down, and an R5 programme should be profit making. But on the other hand they will probably damage the sales of Skoda Motorsport (indeed we've already seen that if BRR are moving to the Polo)

    Sure they will bring some extra sales to the market from local VW importers e.t.c. but every Polo sale is not going to equal an extra R5 sale.

    We could see from different point of view: They have knowledge form S2000, WRC, R5 programs, using that building car in other platform than Fabia R5 with low resources (while Fabia R5 is relatively new car), which would help to adapt R5 to other brand names (like SEAT) quite easy.
    PSA doing same, and only because their car isn't good enough, that don't work for them very well.
