The success of the fifth-generation Clio designed for racing continues to grow, with 225 units already built and made available in just ten months.

Alongside Clio Rally5, Clio RX and Clio Cup, the Dieppe workshops have also begun production of the first Clio Rally4s, which are due to make their competition debut in May.

In Italy too, the Clio Rally5 duo of Herve Milliery and Andre Perrin took top honours in their category on Rally Team 971 contested around Settimo Torinese.
