    Why have they that rule? The car in the Rally2 down to Rally5 is anyway productionbased cars, it should be no need for manufacturer-involvment there.

    I think it’s fair enough.. the manufacturers will want some control over competition vehicles bearing their brand in order to protect their reputation, and besides without some kind of manufacturer support a Rally2 project is unlikely to be very successful. It’s not the olden days any more where vehicles in the lower classes were literally a road car with a rollcage and some bucket seats bolted in.

    Where does the profit go from all these Fabia R5 sales ?

    I wish a lot of those were M-Sport Fiesta R5 sales to help keep this rally business thriving.

    From what we're told, I doubt Skoda would have hung around if the program didn't make a profit. Good to share the wealth around and they're rewarded for a great product.

    As other wrote. Škoda Motorsport works on its own budget as a self-sufficient business.

    And many rebuilds on R5s as well, and a huge number of spare parts that also brings revenue.

    In addition the Evo's/ Rally2 that also has triple digits in prod numbers!
    Maybe that model will reach 200 before the new Rally2 comes in the summer.
