    Probably only a good thing, hadn't there been a question mark over the future of the Alpine brand? Should raise the profile of Alpine and the RGT program will be small change by comparison. Also, Renault are already funding both programs this year.

    Yep, it seems the A110 is actually homologated under FIA RGT rules. Alpine purpose was always to build a GT rally car able to run in any championship. Besides, FFSA RGT regulation is copy paste from FIAís Art.256 (apart a small detail regarding Led lamp pods); definitely different from the local GT+ (more liberal) or GT (sort of N/GT) categories.

    Actually thatís good news, once the Alpine brand was rumored to vanish once more, before the new CEO (Luca de Meo, ex-SEAT) arrival. Apparently De Meo plan is to make Alpine a larger sport brand inside the group, launching new models and taking Renault motorsport activities. Fingers crossed!
