M-Sport already test individual pieces of the Fiesta RS WRC 2017


it is Not a secret that M-Sport is long and the team with fewer resources to develop its new World Rally Car of face-to-2017, a direct consequence of not having the official support from a manufacturer. Despite this, and without altering the initial plan to make the first tests of the new Ford Fiesta RS WRC in the summer, the coach of Cumbria has already begun the work. In this way, and during the last week, M Sport carried out a test in which the tested parts of the Fiesta RS WRC 2017 on the current model.

Although M-Sport has been able to prove any of these parts in the current model, in Cumbria it is understood that the new model must be very different both on the inside and the outside to be able to be competitive in relation to models of Toyota, Citro├źn, Volkswagen and Hyundai. It’s not worth to adapt the current model to the technical requirements of 2017 and the design team led by Chris Williams has started the design of a Ford Fiesta RS WRC from zero, where the airfoil will take an importance that is remarkable in relation to the development that has made M-Sport’s current Fiesta RS WRC in the last few years.

With these tests of parts of the model 2017, M-Sport starts to take the first steps towards their new World Rally Car, a model which in principle also will claim that Ford’s return as the team official and do not limit your paper to a slight technical help. In any case, in addition to the test with the Ford Fiesta RS WRC, during these last few days have also performed other tests in the breast of M-Sport. Ott Tanak tested for DMACK with a Fiesta RS WRC in the vicinity of Cumbria. The objective to evolve the tyres of the land of the brand.
