Wrc & Their Road Cars


Recommended Posts

I thought of starting up a new discussion on WRC cars & their road versions.

Standings for drivers

If you have been following the current WRC standings you would see that the Citroen team is leading the manufacturers & Drivers championships. Mind you this is an old car.

Second in line is the Ford Team.

They are followed by Subaru, Peugeot, Mitsubishi & Skoda.

Mitsubishi & Subaru have built up names for them with their performance versions in Sri Lanka and abroad. So has Ford established themselves abroad.

The question will be what about the others??

Would you guys go for a Citroen Xsara or a Peugeot 307 / 206 or a Skoda performance version if they were offered in Sri Lanka as second hand at a very cheap rate. (note the pugs are offered here at low rates, but not the performance models)???

Next thing is I read in an old AUtocar magazine about the similarities between the WRC vehicles and their performance vehicles.

The Evo & Scooby head the list being very close in the performance aspect & well as the looks whereas the others are worlds apart from their rallying cars.

Toyota apparently is re-entering the WRC in 2017 after a 16 year hiatus. What they are developing as a rally car, perhaps quite surprisingly, is a Toyota Vitz ! <it is not a very pretty looking thing but maybe this also means that we might be getting more of something like the turbo charged Vitz GRMN>
