A true pillar of the World Rally Championship for several decades, the British team no longer hides its enthusiasm for the historic arrival of the hybrid in the WRC.
“It has always been important for our sport to evolve with the times, and this commitment to hybrid technology aligns the future of rallying with Ford’s global commitment to a more sustainable future”, Malcolm Wilson said. “As the toughest championship for production cars, the WRC provides the perfect platform to test, develop and promote the latest in road car technology. Which makes this development essential to the relevance and continuation of our sport. ”
“It is also an integral part of our continued successful partnership with Ford and preserves M-Sport’s immediate future in the WRC. Over the past two decades we’ve had some fantastic performance and developed some of the cars and fielded some of the most successful drivers. ”
Seriously involved in this new era, the M-Sport team has already made good progress on its new Rally1. With several teasers already published on the web, the project has really taken shape in recent weeks with the first runs.
“Working closely with Ford Performance, we intend to continue this success in 2022 and progress on our future car continues with tests in the UK and America. There is still a long way to go, but we are determined to launch a new victorious self as the world moves towards a more sustainable future. ”
