    For sure they could not developed the kit without testing. That's impossible.

    The FIA/Oreca R4 deal is a bit strange, to say the least. The kit seems to be based on Argentina’s Maxi Rally (dampers aside, as teams are free to choose them), so there’s no justification for the delays. But the most intriguing thing is to have just one R4 kit supplier. A single supplier can make sense for only one country (like Baratec in Argentina) but even in the Asia Pacific region the AP4 cars (yes, they’re different from R4 but they share the regs spirit) can be made by different tuners. The mandatory Oreca kit in Europe (also on ERC and WRC) can become a limitation for R4 category.

    Btw, the R4 Clio from Renault Spain is, for now, a N5 (spanish MR version), built by RMC and expected to start at the next CERA event (Ferrol). The ‘real’ Clio R4 debut date is unknown.
