With Garen having disappeared, has anyone taken over distribution of Motonica in the US or Canada?

Looking at the statistics of the last EC-A I believe only Robin d'Hondt was driving a Motonica. To me it is telling that it is not a very populair car at this moment....

But there is nothing wrong with the car and the manufacturer....

Motonica still exists, but so that you know, RC is not their main activity.
they are still producing parts. They have produced pan car kits recently. But it's a bit too early to talk about a new on road 4x4!

For sure with all the new brands (HB, WRC, BP Racing) coming in onroad racing it's difficult to make money with so few customers!

Wait and see!
