M-Sport and Michelin will attend Rally Legend in October with their top-specification EcoBoost-powered Ford Fiesta WRC. Regarded as one of rallying’s most prestigious festivals, the San Marino ‑based event attracts an incredible entry with some of the most exciting and inspiring cars from throughout a rich and celebrated history.
M-Sport and Michelin achieved one of the sport’s most inspiring success stories when they launched the Fiesta WRC in the 2017 FIA World Rally Championship – a private team from the edge of the English Lake District National Park overcoming the might of three of the world’s largest automotive manufacturers to secure the Driver, Co-driver and Manufacturer Championships.
That achievement would not have been possible without the support of dedicated and long-standing partners like Michelin, and the two companies are delighted to showcase the top-specification Fiesta at Rally Legend. The team will announce which driver will take to the wheel at a later date.
M-Sport Ford Team Principal, Richard Millener, said:
“The Ford Fiesta WRC is one of our most special and successful cars and what we achieved will be remembered for a very long time. But none of it would have been possible without the support of our partners, and it’s a pleasure to be able to showcase it at an event as prestigious as Rally Legend with a partner as valued and respected as Michelin.”
