    What baffles me is the sound. It sounds trully as a 3-cylinder but I'm quite sure it is 4-cylinder engine (the only VW three cylinder is 1.0 TSI Evo). The sound is simply weird.

    Any news regarding the homologation date?

    agreed, same tone as a Rally4 car, but with more grunt and bang.

    On gravel some are saying that MkI is faster, and give them better feedback and feels safer.

    Once again, thank you M-Sport for giving me a flawless and competitive Fiesta Rally2.

    Looks like they changed the intercooler and radiator arrangement (from vertical to horizontal), of course this can change during further development.

    Thoughts on new Fabia:

    - I am pleasantly surprised how blistered the wheels arches are considering the width of the road car. Road car shape must just work to enable them to still do that.

    - Engine doesn’t sound like a three cylinder to me but has a very raspy exhaust note, like Polo R5 or some older Citroen WRCars. I like the loud turbo ‘chirrups’ and bangs though!

    - Rear wing is bigger

    - Car retains the front suspension geometry of the current Fabia: https://www.ewrc-results.com/image/634869/

    - It looks very well sorted already, especially in Kopecky’s hands who knows these roads well (is this the first public test?)

    - Zero car for Barum with Meeke or Tidemand?

    I don't know what happened with their ERC programme, but at least Proton Iriz R5 continues to compete in Britain. Ollie Mellors and Max Freeman are going to return to the stages after their big crash at the Nicky Grist rally. They are going to enter an event called Three Shires Stages in September:
