Polo R WRC road car. Now you to can have a 4WD Polo that somewhat looks like a WRCar with a Golf GTI engine. If the Polo does well in the WRC, then VW might make a Polo R and there are no plans for the UK to get this as all will be made in LHD. That probably won't stop a few UK importers from importing them as grey market vehicles.

Not a bad result for its second rally. And for Seb-two to beat a competitively running Seb-one seems to indicate it wasn't one of those victories where everyone else fell off the road or broke.

And a side note - wilslow... nothing need be said.

Yes, the Polo seems to be very competitive. I guess VW has changed their management style, but I think the Polo WRC is really a Fabia S2000 with a fancy Polo bodyshell and a 1.6T WRC spec engine.
