    TBF, Skoda's only experience with the lower tier rally (apart from S2000/Rally2) was the Fabia R2. And it was quickly overshadowed by Fiesta and the PSA duo.. (I think)

    That's not true.

    First Fabia R2 had little to do with Škoda. It was private project of Impromat Motorsport for which Škoda gave some limited support and granted FIA homologation.

    Second thing is that you can't ignore the whole history of Škoda Motorsport which was all about lower tier cars until Octavia WRC. Especially in 70'-90' period I dare to say that Škoda built some of the very best lower tier cars in the world.

    Thats true, the 110-130 rear engined versions were winning their classes over a long periode.

    But that fact only tells me they car do it again.
    To be fair, the Rally3 is a middle tier car in the new pyramid!

    Skoda Motorsport has all needed know how to quicly put together a top notch Rally3 if they want to.
    And they have a lot of tuners and so on inside their republic, or neighbours, if they would out- or insource the engineering and/or production of a new class.

    Skoda has 120 years of experience in lower tier rally cars. Ever heard about Favorit or Felicia Kit Car?

    If I remember correctly Skoda won F2 trophy with Felicia Kit Car in the nineties.

    Felicia Kit Car never won the F2 (it was second overall twice I think) but the ultra-light 1.3 litre Favorit 136L/A indeed won the 2 litre championship in 1994.

    Anyway sorry for off topic.

    TBH, I was focusing to the early R-class era. But thanks for the explanation..

    Has there been any decision made from Renault Sport on the issue of making a Rally3 car to take on Ford?

    Benoit Nogier said in the beginning of August:
    On the question of whether Renault would seek to join in, he added: No stress, its not the moment still to make that announcement. But its closer and closer each day, I would say, and we are in a very good position to confirm definitely the project.

    Any news yet?
