    Rally3 class

    Who will be first on the market with a new rally 3 car?
    A R2 with 4 wheel drive?

    In some countries this class will become a factor between R2 and R5 or R4 if it takes off.

    In championships that are mostly run on gravel or snow, this will be a good learning 4wd class for youngsters.

    Is something said from FIA about regulations for the 4wd in this class?
    Will it be a kit, as in R4 or will it be free for tuners to make?

    No, it will be similar concept like R5 or R2 - cars made and homologated by manufacturers.

    Tragic. Some classes could be left to the rest of motorsport industry to make parts for. This class will most likely be for parts of the world where gravel/snow is predominant, sweden and finland have many smart tuners that could contribute in this class, mostly for young and coming drivers.

    I think You don't understand the concept. The idea of R5 was to use as many standard production parts as possible no matter the manufacturer and to keep the cost of the car and its spare parts basically frozen for all the time. There is even higher number of such stock parts in the Rally3 concept (thanks to lower performance). This concept absolutely works in R5 and there is a good reason to expect it will work with Rally3 as well.
