Buying possibilities 

Next to buying a complete, full spec Fiesta Proto Car we also give people and teams the possibility to build Proto's theirselves. As there are many Mitsubishi EVO X Group N & R4 cars available we have decided to offer packages with parts needed to build a Proto.
We developed four packages in which various conversion possibilities are given. 

Here under are four buttons, a click on them will open an PDF file in which the full list of parts and prices is shown. For extra informations, remarks or questions: Please contact us. 

Next to buying a complete car or a conversion pack, Heuvel-Motorsport can also convert your existing car into a Proto car. In this way you will have to buy the wanted conversion pack + a fixed amount of labor needed to convert the car. For more info about conversion possibilities please contact us.

In order to obtain both, performance as reliability it's vital to use the best parts available on the rally car market. 


Homologation Process

First established in Poland the PROTO class is getting more publicity and therefore more countries and ASN are interested in taking the class to their countries. In our country we worked together with our ASN to establish a Cup to let the Fiesta Proto drive during all Dutch Rally events. The Dutch regulations can be found here under.
