Ford’s rally team head to the Algarve


This week the Ford World rally team will be heading off to the Algarve to compete in the Rally de Portugal; that will be taking place between the 29th of March and 1st of April.

Just last month, the team displayed great form in Mexico, winning half of all stages, and will of course be hoping to carry forward this success to the Portuguese fixture.  The team officially use a selection of Ford Fiesta RS world rally class cars, based upon the road version of what has become one the popular Ford cars for sale.

The race will take vehicles through a great variety of conditions and road types, mixing both open roads and jagged abrasive tracks, certainly not for the fainthearted!

To find out why the Ford Fiesta was chosen, why not head to your nearest Ford dealer ship, such as Ford Swindon.
