S2000 Proton Satria Neo Race Car Specification

Super 2000, also known as S2000, is an FIA specification and classification for production based race cars. The specification is split to cover both rally and touring car racing. Super 2000 rally cars are also permitted to compete in Production World Rally Championship events alongside Group N cars.

The goal of the Super 2000 classification is to allow more manufacturers and privateers to race by reducing the cost of a competitive car. The World Rally Championship currently has two manufacturers fielding teams, while private teams rely on older cars from current manufacturers or from "works" teams that have left the WRC, such as Subaru, Škoda, or Mitsubishi. The World Touring Car Championship currently has four manufacturers competing, these being BMW, SEAT, Chevrolet and Lada with independent teams generally using older cars from previous seasons.

In order to cut costs & shorten development time, the Super 2000 rally cars originally used a common control gearbox & drivetrain made by a French company, Sadev. The FIA has since announced that Xtrac and Ricardo Consulting Engineers will be allowed to also manufacture S2000 gearboxes to FIA specification. This is to further cut costs by introducing competition into gearbox supply.

This new formula has already started to bear fruit, especially in the Intercontinental Rally Challenge, already known as the premiere Rally Championship for S2000 cars, with 7 manufacturers already registered and competing. They are, Honda, Peuqeot, Mitsubishi, PROTON, FIAT, Skoda and Volkswagen.
