Something is coming closer...

Decimal depends on how you read them. Taking those Byte as unsigned 8-Bit Integers would yield: "83 50 49 48 48 48 48 50 52"
Not that it looks any helpful.
 

I rather suspect there is further encoding to be done with the ASCII decoded numbers.

On 27 September 2008, the Colin McRae Forest Stages Rally took place in Perth, Scotland. An enhanced entry list of several former big-name rally drivers took part in memory of Colin.[41] The impressive entry list included ex-World Championship drivers Hannu Mikkola, Ari Vatanen (partnered by his 1981 WRC winning co-driver David Richards), Björn Waldegård, Stig Blomqvist, Malcolm Wilson, Russell Brookes, Jimmy McRae, Andrew Cowan and Louise Aitken-Walker, many competing in their original cars. A handful of current WRC drivers also took part including Matthew Wilson, Kris Meeke and Travis Pastrana. The event was deemed a great success, attracting record spectator numbers to the Perthshire forests. The outright winner was Stobart VK M-Sport Ford Rally Team driver Matthew Wilson in a Ford Focus WRC. Fittingly, Colin's brother Alister McRae won the classic category.

In video game Colin McRae: Dirt 2 there is a race series named "Colin McRae Challenge" that is dedicated to him. Winning the race unlocks a video that is a tribute to him.

And the McRae rally challenge is back this year at Knockhill just down the road.  Yep, something might just be coming this year thats a little more special, and that DR2.0 is onboard with and contributing to..  🤞🏻
 

For UK viewers, look out for Chris Harris running L555 BAT in this series of Top Gear too

That's some top sleuthing, gents. Well done!

So basically some more Wales stages and a new car. Good, but I'm somewhat crushed it's not a whole new season and rallies.

Hoping the Scotland rally (if so) has at least some quite different lighting, objects, or stage design to differentiate it from Wales.

All this for just one car? I can´t believe that....

Well considering we’re still just getting teasers it’s a bit early to say it’s gonna be ‘just one car’. Let’s wait until official confirmation, now is the time for feverish speculation!

Yeah, it's surely more then one car: that said, given the car in question, everything else that comes is icing on the cake now!

Since I was only 4/5 when this car was about, I’m not too familiar with it or the other cars of that era. What class would it fall into? And could we be seeing a new class with other cars from those years?

With the classes we have in game, it surely going into 2000cc @RallyDriven.

As has been discussed before a late '90's class would make perfect sense with the Evo VI (which was beyond Group A in reality) and the S3 WRC in it, but I personally think that is unlikely to come at this point in the games life, as moving the Evo VI would require leaderboards to be reset. 

With that in mind I am not expecting the S3 to be the fastest car in class, but I am hoping it will be as entertaining to drive as the '01 Focus.
