Ford has announced its motorsport programme for the next few years,
confirming a four-year commitment to the World Rally Championships. The
rally programme will continue in partnership with M-Sport, and from 2006, an
all-new Focus RS WRC - which will have a road-going equivalent - will
compete. Ford will also participate in Junior World Rally, Touring Car and
Formula Ford championships, as well as selected one-make race series. The
Fiesta JWRC car will also be developed by M-Sport, who will support
privateer teams, and the Fiesta ST Cup may be extended outside of Germany to
other European countries. A new Focus touring car has also been developed
for sale to customer teams.
