Just watched the Monte Carlo Eurosport review again and at the end of it they have an interview with George Donaldson, who is talking about the R4 regulations and he mentions that later on in the year they plan on having a team out out there along with a partner and some top drivers, can anybody elaborate on this? Subaru planning to run a team with R4 cars?

Toshi Arai - Corse, Acores, Mecsek, Scotland, Cyprus
Fumio Nutahara - Acores, Scotland, Cyprus
Both in Yokohama colors with Impreza R4 so it's probably that team.Meum est propositum in taberna mori.

It was nice to see (and of course to hear) the comments of the drivers who’s did the test. The test drivers’ comments about this R4 improvement are encouraging.
I don’t think this test was about speed, moreover about the handling of the car. Let’s see how the R4 will cope with the S2000?

Ralliart Italy is constantly testing in Italy with Gr N and R4 cars. Test results will be posted when available.

I understood that R4 regulations only applied to current model of each manufacturer, so has Ralliart Italy homologated a kit for Evo IX, as well?
7th Apr 11, 17:07 #334
Yes Ralliart Italy has exclusively Homologated the R4 EVO IX.

This is the reason why Boon in Fabia R2 did not make it to the finish in Wallonie last weekend and also didn't take home R2 victory in front of C2 and Twingo (Princen!):

Nice spare part list where the serial parts and the kit parts are clearly separated.

A complete Fiesta R2 from M-Sport is 48.955 € (exchange rate 0,87) and a complete Citroen C2 R2 Max is 58.000 € and a Skoda R2 62.000 €. What should be considered is also what one gets for a certain price.
The contest of the different kits are quite different and it’s difficult to compare the kits, so I did a counting of items (rows) from spare parts lists with similar contests to compare “what do you get for the price”.
The only kit a know for sure is the Fiesta’s kit and it include about 340 items. The Renault Twingo R2 kit has about 310 items and the Skoda Fabia R2 kit has about 490 items.
Calculating the average price per item gives the following results:
Fiesta: 123 € / item
Twingo: 148 € / item
Fabia: 141 € / item
Pity that Citroen don’t have similar spare parts list as the others one, so I couldn’t do the calculations of the items for Citroen. But anyway looking at the average price per item, the Skoda is not so expensive despite of the high price for a complete car.
For a comparison the price per item for a Renault Clio R3 is 163 € / item and has 605 items in a similar kit.

That the Fabia and C2 cost more is without calculating average price per item is not even bad because they are the best R2's on the market now. Fiesta and Twingo having not power/speed of the Fabia and C2 in my oppinion.Join us on https://www.facebook.com/TACrally
