M-SPORT WORLD RALLY TEAM FORD FI­ESTA RS WRC

Motor Sport News - - Wrc Preview -

Tricky year this one for M-sport. Like the rest of rally world, it’s all eyes on 2017 as the sport gears-up for sig­nif­i­cant regulation change and all-new World Rally Cars. M-sport’s ri­vals Volk­swa­gen and Hyundai can rely on sig­nif­i­cant re­source to run the 2016 pro­gramme along­side the test and de­vel­op­ment ef­fort for next sea­son, but that’s likely to stretch the Cum­brian squad – es­pe­cially in Septem­ber and Oc­to­ber, when the in­ten­sity in both ar­eas will go up a level. Af­ter a year with up-and-com­ing driv­ers, it’ll be fas­ci­nat­ing to see what a rally win­ner like Mads Ost­berg can do with the Fi­esta.
