The FIA has set the cost of purchasing a new-generation Rally3 car, a vehicle introduced to bridge the performance gap between Rally4 and Rally2 cars. At a cost of 100,000 euros, subject to approval, Rally3 is effectively for Rally4 cars adapted to four-wheel drive. FIA Rally Director Yves Matton explained: “The price of the cars will be very important to the success of the category so we have worked with the manufacturers to agree a price that was reasonable and could be achieved within the regulations. “We therefore aim to make the regulations more precise by specifying the cost of the car in tarmac or gravel specification. We don’t want customers to have to buy a separate kit if they are only doing gravel events, for example. “We also want the cars to be sold already painted, because the cost of painting a car can be 5000 euros. We want the parts catalogue for each car to include the price and for cars to be sold without mandatory options.” A catalogue of FIA Rally cars will eventually appear on FIA.com to further promote the FIA rallying pyramid and spread the use of these cars as widely as possible, particularly at national level, while also maintaining the value of cars that have been previously owned.
