    Kyrgyzstan sounds quite advanced compared to Myanmar where they have ox and carts at night on the roads.
    The NZ chap who does some Rally and overland tours, in 2017 did the following route - obviously it had to be a diesel one.
    Diesel
    Bangkok to Magadan (Thailand - Myanmar- Thailand - Laos - China- Mongolia - Russian Far East)

    China - ldv are doing suvs in petrol, diesel , ( and electric and hybrid in the plans) the 'stan' countries are likely to get Chinese used vehicles in the years ahead.

    Toyota in Brazil are just starting on the hybrid flex fuel - fossil and biofuels and electrics - developing countries likely to have some vehicles like this.

    For more advanced places the battery pack swap is likely for those going far or in a hurry or forget to charge etc.

    Used Toyota Mirai are not going to be a lot of use in places with no hydrogen supply network.

    Škoda Motorsport released an article about Richard Burns Rally moding: https://www.skoda-motorsport.com/en/...-rally-gaming/

    Nothing new for most of you but it's a nice recognition of the fan work from a works team.

    The community of RBR is fantastic, so much effort and dedication has been put in the game from modders. Nice to see Skoda praising them, they deserve it.

    Chaps and chapesses, I wanted to share something that I have been working on for some time – Lanica Rally 037 is one of my all-time favourite completion cars (you might have noticed a 037 theme to my avatar) and ever since it ended its rally career I have been asking myself how would a potential successor look like - 30 years on I have a design that I am happy with and would like to share here. Will it ever be built? Don’t know, I’ve never been any good at finding the budgets required to do engineering projects of that magnitude, while doing it at kit car level (no disrespect to this field by the way) is not something I currently intend to do. Either way, the project was/is a great fun and anything further from now one is a bonus.

    Nice project NickRally. It’d be brilliant to see a modern 037 hitting the road, just like Michael Stoschek and MAT are managing to do with the New Stratos (http://www.manifatturaautomobilitori...s-limited-run/). You should present your project to them or to Key Sport guys, probably the current major authority on Lancia rally cars rebuild (http://www.keysport.it/). Good luck mate!

    Hi Rally Power, thanks for the encouragement, it is well received.
    Talking about MAT, they are a great place to do such projects, although finding the budget is still up to me . I actually met with them at the Geneva Motorshow in March and we had a good chat where they confirmed that small projects like the ones mentioned are right up their street.
    Thanks for the other link, I will have a good look there.
