Ford Fiesta RS WRC

The Ford Fiesta RS was launched in 2011 to comply with new FIA technical regulations. It delivered a 1-2-3 result on its first event (Sweden) and went on to take 13 podiums in its debut season. After Ford’s WRC withdrawal at the end of the 2012 season, cars have been developed and run by Ford’s former rally partner, British-based preparation firm M-Sport.
