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, British-based preparation firm M-Sport has been solely responsible for developing and running the cars.
