M-Sport World Rally Championship

The M-Sport team, previously the Ford World Rally Team, boasts a rich World Rally heritage, having won the FIA Manufacturers' World Rally Championship title with Ford in both 2006 and 2007. Recent notable achievements include winning six of the past seven editions of Rally Sweden, one of the most demanding rallies on the calendar. In 2010, Ford and M-Sport unveiled the new-look, Castrol EDGE-lubricated Fiesta RS WRC, the car that current drivers will be pushing to the absolute limit in order to reclaim the top of the World Rally points table.

M-SPORT TEAM

Mikko Hirvonen spent six of his ten professional rallying seasons with Ford, winning 14 times, and is one of the biggest talents in rallying. 

Elfyn Evans enjoyed an impressive 2013, where he showcased great pace in WRC 2 and had an impressive WRC debut that thrust him onto the world stage.

Ford Fiesta RS WRC

The Ford Fiesta RS WRC’s four-wheel-drive powertrain, gives the cars impressive grip and handling even on slippery gravel, rain-soaked mud and in the snow. Powered by a Castrol EDGE-lubricated 1.6-litre turbo engine, the Fiesta develops an astonishing 300bhp and 450Nm of torque. That’s amazing power for such a compact engine, demanding truly extreme performance from Castrol EDGE, our strongest oil.

About WRC

The World Rally Championship is a thrilling, globe-trotting tour featuring some of the toughest events in the world. Drivers race the terrain and the clock, tackling a series of point-to-point stages over three or four days with the aim of completing each stage in the fastest time. The rally cars are based on road-going cars, but have race-tuned 1.6-litre turbo engines that develop 300bhp. Maximum performance is required, and that’s where Castrol EDGE delivers every time.
