    Their only other rally car, the Fiesta, is coming to the end of production according to rumours. If there is to be another Ford Rally2 it has to be a Puma.

    Do Ford really care about Rally2? In my head, other than approving the affiliation, that's pure M-Sport business.

    I want to push PLuto on this too. Peugeot 208 is next up to lapse, in 2024...

    It's going to take some serious work and investment by anyone who wants to make a new Rally2 if they have any hope of competing with the new Skoda.

    Fabia undisguised: https://youtu.be/qb0RNdkCXgQ

    I guess that's Andreas driving the zero car on Bohemia then..

    The headquarter operation in the UK seems to have their hands full with Rally1.
    As I have said before, the Polish arm should be given responsibility for all Customer Rally cars, then we could see movement on development on their Rally2 car.

    i think no-one will move before the new 2025 reg. for now, the thing to do is rally3 and maybe the super lowcost rally5e

    Don't think it matters if they aren't running any. Maybe in the future it'd make sense to be based where the market is.

    FWIW I meant Ford-Ford, blue oval people who produce consumer road vehicles.

    Few pics from yesterday's Fabia RS rally2 test with Mikkelsen behind the wheel. The word really is that he will drive at Rally Bohemia as a zero car.

    I don't think Andreas has driven the car on tarmac much, if at all, so makes sense to give him a go before the debut.
