Is it evo 1 or is it evo 2. It all depends on what you call the original of course !

A bit skeptic to the new air intake below the grill. Looks like a leave, gravel, snow collector. But they might cover it, and not have direct access to the radiator as it look like on the pics/drawings.

But it looks goood, and hopefully will match the Fieasta !

You say match, do you think the Fiesta is ahead now?

Ok, so Mikko won on Monte, but the Fabia won in Sweden. I do think he is a better driver than the Fiesta drivers who were in Sweden, but....

I think they are all pretty close, and the 207 too.

Gravel is IMO always the best test of how fast the car is, snow and asfalt require specialized drivers (at least it used to....)
So lets see, but M-Sport has a lot of experience to build a car from, more than Skoda Motorsport I think, but hopefully I will be proven wrong :lol:

But is it an Evo 1 or 2 ? What has Mitsubishi and Lancia and other called it when the first upgrade from the original came ?

I don't think Skoda call it anything officially yet other than "Fabia S2000 facelift"

I guess the European rounds (Sardinia) onwards will be a good measure of the Fiesta vs. Fabia as Mikkelsen will be driving it and he was already quicker than all the other guys in sWRC in Sweden (apart from PG).

One more thing Sulland, can you explain your avatar to me?!

Very hard week for EVO 2. Within period 6 to 8 April performed Skoda hard test at Milovice. The drivers Juho Hänninen and Nicolas Vouilloz had a job to keep during these three days Fabia under full power to find out weak parts of the car.
Video here.
Yesterday April 9 made Jan Kopecky whole day break test on twisty track at Navarov.
Some rumours speculate that wide Fabia will have first run on Ypres rally. For sure it will not be Sardinia as planed.

Thanks Jarda. I am pleased that Nicolas Vouilloz was involved, I was very impressed by him during Monte Carlo. It seems he will do some more tarmac events later in the season.

It makes sense to take the new car to Ypres, since the wider track will be more of an advantage on asphalt. I wonder whether Kopecky will take a new car to Italy?

Kopecky will drive in Italy the car from Skoda Italy. I'm not sure if they will have a new car. I know only that Jan will drive at Canaria the unused car from Argentina and Juho will have very new car.
