Ford Shows What Goes On During Development of a Supercar-class Rallycross Racer
Ford has released “Project RX”, a four-part documentary series which will highlight various elements of the Ford Focus RS RX vehicle development, along with behind-the-scenes access and interviews with the engineering team and drivers.
Ford vehicles wearing the RS badge have had winning participation in rally for decades. Because the RS badge is reserved for vehicles that display the highest level of Ford Performance technology, automotive enthusiasts have been incredibly excited about the latest version of the Ford Focus RS. Their unbridled passion, in addition to the vehicle’s global release, made 2016 the perfect year for the program’s debut to a new generation of motorsports fans.
M-Sport is exclusively appointed by Ford Motor Company as long-term development partners for rally and rallycross products based on Focus and Fiesta models.
The Ford Focus RS RX vehicle development is Ford Performance’s factory program in the FIA World Rallycross Championship series. “Project RX” takes an inside look at the development process between the Ford Performance team based in Dearborn, Michigan, the UK-based M-Sport, and Hoonigan Racing Division.
Some details of the Ford Focus RS RX Race Program in 2016 are as follows:
- Two-car team campaigning in the FIA World Rallycross Championship
- Both drivers will compete under the Hoonigan Racing Division banner
- Hoonigan Racing Division drivers will be back in action May 6-8 in Hockenheim, Germany.
