    It used to be very good. I still believe in the formula and I think it is the ideal car for beginning drivers wanting to start an international career. They are not cheap, but they are the real deal with the sequential gearbox etc.

    In my opinion the issue is that FIA didn't decide to make the R2T faster than traditional atmospheric cars already one or two years back. For sure it would hurt at the beginning but it's the only way how to make the manufacturers invest in the new R2T. Meanwhile there is no hope new atmospheric cars would come because the manufacturers mostly already stopped production of useful engines. Thanks to that we are now in this lose-lose situation.

    Totally agree. FIA totally dropped the ball with this one and out of step with what the manufacturers are coming up with. Hard pressed to see anyone else entering the fray at this point.

    According to what I heard, Peugeot and Ford are both building a new R2. Peugeot with a 1.2t and Ford with a 1.0t

    With current regulations 1.2T is R3 not R2
    also production of 3-door 208 has ended wile ago.
    Maybe new "208" is coming but that means long wait for rally version

    Don't know about the model.
    All R2 cars now are R2B, which is max 1.0T. There is also an R2C, which can have a 1.2T. The weight of the car must be higher and I presume they need to fit another restrictor to make it fair.

    Think this is the latest from FIA on Supercharged R Classes

    R1A: up to 927 cm3
    R1B: over 927 cm3 and up to 1067 cm3
    R2B: over 927 cm3 and up to 1067 cm3
    R2C: over 1067 cm3 and up to 1333 cm3
    R3C: over 1067 cm3 and up to 1333 cm3

    But how did FIA come up with these max volumes, is is volume x 1,7 as the turbofactor?
