Fiesta WRC to debut on Arctic Rally

Ford's new Fiesta WRC to debut on the Arctic Rally
Ford's all-new Fiesta RS World Rally Car will make its debut in Finland's Arctic Lapland Rally next week.

Mikko Hirvonen and Jari-Matti Latvala will drive a leg each in the two-day snow and ice rally based in Rovaniemi, as the final part of the squad's pre-season testing schedule.

Hirvonen will drive the Fiesta RS WRC on the opening leg of the rally before Latvala takes the wheel for the second day.

The Arctic Rally will conclude the Fiesta RS WRC's comprehensive test and development programme ahead of its WRC debut on Rally Sweden next month and will be an extension of the team's four-day test in Sweden.

"The Fiesta RS WRC has covered thousands of kilometres in testing over the last four or five months,” team boss Malcolm Wilson said. “However, a traditional test cannot truly replicate genuine competition for learning about a car. We believe that going to the Arctic Rally will provide ideal preparation for both the team and the drivers ahead of Rally Sweden."
