    I know a team in Germany who has bought an Opel ADAM R2. Actually they are rather happy with the support they get from Opel Motorsport. But yes, Mirek should be right when he says that M-Sport is still better regarding that topic.

    In Finland 208 has been fastest in most stages.

    Also must remember that Fiesta has different engine variants, pre facelift 1.6 N/A and newer 1.0T 3-zylinder.

    Fiesta was designed to serve in one-make cups not to be the best car.

    Is the Adam still the one to beat, or is the 208 better?
    Is the adam better on asfalt and the 208 better on loose surfaces?

    As always, it depends on who you put in which car.
    And how well which team gets a good test before each race.

    It's good drivers who win races, not cars.
    But a good driver can not win with a car with bad setup.
    Only if the competition is bad or low.

    I would say they are quite equal. Also Fiesta R2t is similar I guess.

    Is there anyone on here aware of new R2 cars being planned/under development? All current competitive R2 cars are quite old already. Both 208 R2 and Adam R2 are in competition since 2013, Fiesta R2T since 2015 I think. Has the FIA made the rules for the new 1.0l turbo cars too strict? What keeps manufacturers from making them?

    Production of 3-door 208 roadcar has ended...
    Fiesta R2 bodywork is old model...

    Some new cars must come or R2 is dying, sooner or later.
