Mads Ostberg announced the other day that would compete with a Ford Fiesta RS WRC 2017 at the Rally of Sweden, giving the starting signal for a private program that will take you to compete in all of the calendar appointments for 2017 WRC with the exception of Mexico due to personal issues. However, what appeared to be a personal project under the banner of Adapta Motorsport, team of your family, it is not as well as unveiled ‘Autosport’. However, Mads Ostberg will be associated with Martin Prokop to compete in the structure of the Czech rider, a classic among the private pilots of the championship.
In this way, and according to sources consulted by ‘Autosport’, Martin Prokop and Mads Ostberg will compete under the umbrella of MP Racing, although in some way the management of the two Ford Fiesta RS WRC 2017 will be independent. All in all, this partnership will allow reduce costs in logistics, sharing synergies and, more importantly, form a structure of two units of private with certain guarantees, and that more facilities at M-Sport to be able to register these two units and to comply with the requirements of the FIA. A couple of fact full-blown.
Now you just need to define the program of Martin Prokop. While Mads Ostberg will be in eleven of the thirteen rallies of the season, losing the Monte-carlo and Mexico, the project of the Czech rider is an unknown. However, Martin Prokop is contesting the Dakar at the controls of a Ford F150 developed and evolved by MP Racing, his own team. Surely you will miss the Rally of Montecarlo, while the rest of the year it is very likely that combine their appearances in the WRC with his usual dabbling with the endurance races in GT, and perhaps with some proof of the World cup FIA Cross-Country.
