The Mitsubishi Mirage R5 to debut in the WRC


Ford, Skoda, Citroen, Peugeot, Hyundai, Volkswagen or Proton. All of these manufacturers have or will have in the near future your own vehicle R5, either through the direct development of the car or by the granting of the approval to the preparer external that has made it possible. A list that very well could be Mitsubishi and that is not by the decision of the trademark is not approved at the international level FIA the Mitsubishi Mirage R5 that began to develop Mpart Sport in 2014. Since then and without the approval of the brand, this Mirage R5 has competed, literally, where he has been able to.

Mpart Sport got the approval of the Mirage R5 of the Federation of Sweden, to gradually become a hole in the nationals of countries such as the Uk, Ireland, Estonia, Latvia, Russia and Poland, getting the approval R5 of other federations such as Italy, Belgium, Denmark or Lithuania. However, the great success of the Mitsubishi Mirage R5 is, until today, to compete in the Championship Rally of the Asia-Pacific (APCR) high-level. With its 1.6-litre engine derived from that used in the Lancer EVO X, your box Sadev five-gear and its awd system has been at the height of the rest of R5.

Although Mpart Sport has updated the Mirage R5 during this time, both at the mechanistic level as on an aesthetic level, adapting even the front of the car to the image of the new Mirage or Space Star, the preparer Swedish without receiving the support of Mitsubishi. However, this does not preclude the Mitsubishi Mirage R5 debuts of once and for all in the WRC, because the Mirage will be enrolled in the Rally of Sweden into the national section, since the approval of the Swedish federation of motorsport allows this fact. A just reward this presence in the WRC to all the work done by Mpart Sport. For the moment, there are four registered units.
