    An electric R5 may promote their electric road car technology so may get approval.

    New rules and an e-series are probably inevitable in the near future.
    Any electrification of this sport in the foreseeable future will 100% sure consist on Hybrid powertrains, so a bit pointless to invest in a full EV rally car.

    This is just an attempt from a dying project to get some headlines, unfortunately.

    New R5 homologations

    Is the Proton still planned to be homologated in July?

    Can we expect to see the Polo driven in anger in a local rally before it will get the official approval?

    I also find it strange that Mitsubishi do not see a potential to get represented in Rally again, almost for free. If they feel that it is not fast enough, I guess that MPart would appreciate help to improve it from Mitsubishi Motorsport.

    Are there more cars that are in the pipeline?

    Current Mitsubishi marketing is based on environmental friendly vehicles. Traditional motorsport simply doesn't fit the strategy.

    What else do you expect from him But to be fair, last year he drove in Italy which to him was a really good and valuable learning year. He had to drive with Peugeot against one of the toughest national fields in tarmac rallying and later on the season his times were getting really competive. Now he is driving in a lot better car, which he already knows very well so I'm expecting really good times from him on tarmac aswell.

    That seems to be it, could also mean that he has a change to do WRC round there also?

    This video was shot in Poland on the famous Kamionki stage. This stage was used in the Rally of Poland some 10 years ago and in hillclimbing events later.

    In the interview at http://rajdy.autoklub.pl/news/rovanp...szczycie,84723 Rovanpera said he was preparing for Sachsen Rallye.
