    Anyway, if they want to keep their involvement in rally they must get ASAP a R2 car (maybe around the 1.2 Pure Tech), before deciding on their future R5. Probably in March (Geneva show) we’ll know more about all this.
    I think Bruno Famin (and also a couple others here) have said that they are working on it, so I would assume it is only a matter of time. However, about two years ago he also said that they will build an R5 from the new 208 as well, so we will see...

    Proton planning some APRC events and selected WRC2.

    Also the Iriz is the only R5 homologated in RHD - useful for the Asian market and Ireland.

    Are RHD R5s not allowed elsewhere? What about WRGB?

    Is it normal to homologate, specified with side of the steering wheel?

    Why should that matter?

    It doesn't matter but you have to have it as homologated. That means if the company homologates the car with a steering wheel on the left you can not put it on the right unless the manufacturer homologated both options - and people in UK or in some Asian countries are used to drive on the left like all of us did before Napoleon decided to change it just for the sake of the change.

    If my German translation is correct, it doesn't sound like Hyundai are ready to write off their i20 R5 just yet: https://www.rallye-magazin.de/wrc/ar...dai-teamchefs/

    New one planned for 2021? Unfortunately doesn't mention if the factory have any plans to run the current one this year.

    Yes, they continue with the R5 programm. Adamo basically says that the main issue of the current car is that it was developed in very short time with just a few people (only four at the beginning while now the customer department (R5 + TCR) has sixty people. Despite that he is confident the car is competitive after new modifications done during last year. He says the engine is the strongest point of the car (as most of us noticed I think). The new R5 car will come in 2021.
