Skoda wouldn't directly compete in the WRC. They would develop a slightly detuned version of a VW WRC using an all new custom 1.6T racing engine by Oreca. This engine might be based on the engine used in the Audi S3 or something like that. Skoda will continue to compete in the IRC with the Fabia S2000 powered by a 2.0NA engine and then a 1.6T. The new WRCars are actually enhanced S2000 cars with a a few WRC specific enhancements.
