Marcus Gronholm testing the Skoda Fabia R5 in Portugal


Like Hyundai, Toyota and M-Sport, Skoda Motorsport has
used the Iberian peninsula to perform the test prior to the Rally
. Training Czech has opted for Portugal, a scenario in which Pontus
has been put at the controls of the Skoda Fabia R5. However, it has not been
the only pilot present in these tests the entire time that Marcus Gronholm also
it has been uploaded to the Skoda Fabia R5
. The two times champion of the WRC and pilot tester
Volkswagen Motorsport it seems that it continues to provide services to the Group
Volkswagen, although in this case, their test can have two readings.

The abrupt departure of Volkswagen Motorsport in the WRC, that
among other things it has left without standardization the Volkswagen Polo R WRC 2017 in the
they both worked Marcus Gronholm, does not imply that the finn is out of the
Volkswagen group
and their tasks for the branch sport of the German giant
have been completed. In fact, these test with the Skoda Fabia R5 as shown,
the entire time that your presence in these tests will serve to Skoda Motorsport and the
own Pontus Tidemand to compare data
and get as best prepared as possible
the Rally of Mexico, where there are only five registered in WRC2 and the victory should
be the ultimate goal.

All in all, the incidence of the test of Marcus Gronholm with the
Skoda Fabia R5 could go beyond
and is likely to be a first
contact with the class R5 before work that you can expect to Finnish in the
next few months. However, Volkswagen announced the development of a Volkswagen
Polo R5
ahead of the season 2018 and before the launch of their official drivers, its evolution well you can run the account Marcus Gronholm
and Dieter Depping
, the two testers of Volkswagen. In addition, the
relationship between both R5 can be one of the keys to German project.
