    So not competing in the full-on WRC - It is a N4 class vehicle - in one of the lower levels of WRC 2

    "WRC 2 – the major support series in WRC and the final stepping stone to the headline WRC category"

    "Open to four-wheel drive cars in the new RC2 class which are built to one of the following five technical regulations.
      • R5: Powered by a 1.6-litre turbocharged engine with a 32mm restrictor and using a five-speed gearbox. The price is capped at 180,000 Euros to ensure cheaper, more standard parts are used.
      • S2000: Powered by either a 1.6-litre turbocharged engine with a 30mm restrictor or a 2.0-litre normally aspirated unit.
      • Regional Rally Cars: Powered by the same engines and transmissions as the World Rally Cars, but power is restricted by a smaller 31mm restrictor.
      • R4: Powered by a 2.0-litre turbocharged engine, closely related to the road cars on which they are based. They use an uprated transmission and lighter body panels.
      • N4: also known as production rally cars, these are very popular and less modified, ‘showroom specification’ vehicles. Cheaper to run, but lower on performance, these cars also compete for their own Production Car Cup."
