    I don't think that it was a Michelin test but I may be wrong.

    Dirtfish wasnt sure about it if you read how they wrote that.

    ''DirtFish understands the test was centered on tire development for Michelin.''

    maybe just skoda wants to test the faster tyre,now the opposition is up on the game.

    Seems like that. Solberg already uses Pirelli on his ‘Skoda Motorsport Customer Racing’ Fabia too.

    Is there much development room left in the current car? I think a new Fabia road car is coming early next year so surely they will start testing a new ‘Rally 2’ car in the not too distant future?
