      Rallying is the purest test of man and machine, in which drivers and their co-drivers fight for victory on all kinds of terrain. The FIA World Rally Championship (WRC) is the sport's undisputed pinnacle; and it's where the world’s best drivers and their co-drivers vie for glory.

      The Rally2 category was introduced as R5 in 2012 by the Fédération Internationale de l’Automobile (FIA), which is motorsport’s governing body. It was intended as the second tier of world rallying. Since then, it has become one of the most competitive categories of world motorsport, hosting cars built by many of the world’s most prominent manufacturers. Accommodating privateer teams, the category offers affordability through strict cost-capping of cars and components, while producing a high-performance rally car that is at home on the stages. In line with the class regulations, our four-wheel drive i20 R5 weighs 1,230 kg and is equipped with a 1.6 litre, turbo charged engine, fitted to a 32 mm air restrictor and a five-speed sequential gearbox.
