    R4 would be like N4+ sequential box, 34mm, less weight and few other items which are allowed in other R classes.
    Still be significant cheaper then S2000 or S2000 1.6T version
    Passion will make you crazy, but is there a other way to live ? :burnout:

    Great to hear that! If only it doesn't become too expensive and if they will drop the name 'standard class'.

    R1:

    The Renault Twingo R1 kit costs 9.500 €.


    R2:

    Renault Twingo R2 kit: 27990 €

    http://www.renault-sport.com/en/rall...ws=124296.html


    Ford Fiesta R2 ready to run: 40.655 € (The price is from the Finnish magazine VM)


    Citroen C2 R2: Tarmac kit: 18.400 € Gravel kit: 19.300 €

    http://www.piecescitroensport.citroe...R2complet1.pdf

    Citroen C2 R2MAX: Tarmac & gravel kit: 34.000 €

    http://www.piecescitroensport.citroe...AXcomplet1.pdf


    R3:

    Renault Clio R3 Maxi kit: 52.000 €
    “Standard part” kit: 7.800 €
    “Off-road” kit: 8.200 €

    http://www.renault-sport.com/en/rall...io_r3_maxi.php


    Honda Civic Type R: The kit installed into the donor car, which is not included in the price, 95.000 €.

    R3T:

    Citroen DS3 R3T kit: 62.000 €

    http://www.piecescitroensport.citroe...alisation1.pdf


    Note that a “kit” doesn’t include the donor car or assembly of the kit.

    As you can see it’s little bit difficult to compare the prices because they include different things. Usually there are also some kinds of options and add-ons which increase the basic price.

    "The GpN 4WD Turbo rally car category is currently undergoing the process of being renamed as R4 for 2011"

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Group_N

    "With the new S2000 rally car category currently under review due to lack of manufacturer interest, R4 which is effectively the new name for GpA (GpN 4WD fitted with a GpA/WRC spec. engine) is being evaluated for rallying in the WRC for 2011."

    Yes, I have also been told similiar.

    I suspect S2000/S1.6T will be canned or phased out. As this was a category when Max Mosley was in charge.

    Surely an official announcement will be made by the FIA soon?

    Here is some correspondance from someone known in rallying who has been working on it.

    Hello

    We started the end of january disscusion about R4 regulation and it is going forward. The plan is to be ready with the new regulation begining of 2011. It is long prosess and many people and companys are involved on that, but it is looking very positive. We will inform you how we improved in near future.

    Will be interested to hear more on this.

    As there is much talk about GpN / R4 becoming the top class of the WRC by the people involved in and with the FIA discussions going on.
