    Well, it is basically Hyundai, so i can`t see the point. Anyway too expensive for most of the manufacturers. Pretty much all of the manufactures present in WRC are threatened by a fine, reaching billions of euros, because they don`t have the technology for new emissions rule from 2020(21?).

    FIA might encourage someone like SAIC (MG brand)to do similar to what Proton are doing with their R5 car https://youtu.be/b_nZaHe16rU https://youtu.be/8AG-gVbZBVY . MG 3 has 2520 mm wheelbase which is stage rally wb. 1500cc turbo engine std pruction or reduce capacity on 1800cc block etc.,

    I am I heard that Mitsubishi have a vision in motorsport but I think that not in rally, maybe in raid because they are focusing only on SUV's.

    wasnt OPEL interested?
    ANyway... I think it'd be more interesting to have more of those MSport/Ford & AbuDhabi/Ctiroen partnerships, right? Like... FIAT AF-Corse, BMWMini ProDrive, VW Qatar/RedBull, The american SUBARU team...
    like with the R5 cars? Sorry. Idk much about the R5 cars thing... or the TCR program too (almost free costumer cars racing touringcar series all over the world)

    Problem with Opel nowdays is, that they are part of PSA group. Maybe compete, maybe not.
