Kosciuszko to skip Acropolis, switches to Ford Fiesta

Michal Kosciuszko: We decided to change the car and work with M-Sport. I would like to thank Motorsport Italia for its co-operation and wish them luck for the future
Michal Kosciuszko will sit out the Acropolis Rally of Greece this week following news he has decided to swap his MINI John Cooper Works WRC car for a Ford Fiesta RS WRC.

Kosciuszko, who competes under the Lotos Team WRC banner, has also split with Motorsport Italia.

The Pole will now get his first outing in the Fiesta RS WRC on Rally d'Italia Sardegna next month. It will be run by M-Sport.

“I am a player who is committed to high standards and consistently strives to achieve the intended objective,” the 28-year-old told the official WRC site. “The place where I got, the WRC, confirms my determination.

“The beginning of the season for us was technically very difficult, so I thank my strategic partner - Grupa LOTOS, which showed great understanding.

“Together we decided to change the car and work with M-Sport. I would like to thank Motorsport Italia for [its] co-operation and wish them luck for the future.”

M-Sport boss Malcolm Wilson added: “Michal showed some impressive pace at the wheel of the Ford Fiesta S2000 in 2010 – securing a podium finish as part of the S-WRC in Mexico – and, considering his clear progression at WRC level, we'll be hoping that he can challenge for some good results both this year and in the future.”
