    So, MSport will be first again to homologate for a new class!
    The Rally3 could turn out to be another money maker for them.

    Renault is still standing with a plan on paper, arent they?

    New photos from Ford Fiesta Rally3 tests that were held in Poland this month can be found below. It wasn't revealed who was driving the car. It is only known that this time it wasn't Kajto and that the driver wasn't Polish:

    According to the rumours yes, but before the Clio Rally3 they'll launch the Rally4, on which they're now working (in order to homologate it on early 2021).

    M-Sport reveals 1.5-liter engine plan for Rally3
    More details of M-Sport's latest rally car have been revealed – and there's a surprise under the hood

    M-Sport reveals 1.5-liter engine plan for Rally3
    M-Sport Poland’s groundbreaking Ford Fiesta Rally3 will run an all-new 1.5-liter turbocharged engine when it arrives in January.

    The world’s first four-wheel drive Rally3 car will be powered by the 197bhp EcoBoost unit found in the Fiesta ST road car. The original expectation had been that it would follow the one-litre route from the Fiesta Rally4.

    The FIA took the decision to broaden the original Rally3 regulations to allow for cars from one liter to 1.6 – with power outputs equalized and regulated via the turbo’s restrictor.

    These changes in rules governing which engines can be used in what’s increasingly seen as a vital class for domestic rallying – as well as the progression through the World Rally Championship – are the reason the Fiesta Rally3 began its testing programme later than planned.

    M-Sport on course to deliver world’s first Rally3 car
    The Fiesta Rally3 is in the middle of an intensive asphalt and gravel test schedule in Poland. The car is expected to continue with more rough road running next month.

    M-Sport Poland managing director Maciek Woda told DirtFish: “When it became clear we could make the change from the one-liter engine, we were keen to work with Ford on that. This three-cylinder, turbocharged engine just gives us that bit more torque – which is great for a four-wheel drive car.”

    The standard torque figure from the Fiesta ST road car is 214lb-ft (290Nm).

    “The engine has worked really well,” said Woda. “We are very happy with the way the testing’s going. We’re gathering good and useful data and having no major problems.”
