Ford Unveils Cool New Fiesta ST Racecar for Global RallyCross Championship

Feb 7 2013, 8:29am CST | by

New racecar for GRC is based on the production Fiesta ST

Ford has officially unveiled its new racing car designed specifically to dominate the 2013 Global RallyCross Championship. The racecar is based on the 2013 Fiesta ST that will go on sale in the United States this summer. Ford is mum on the specifications for the car as far as power output and performance.

The racecar is built by OlsbergsMSE and will be on display this week at the Chicago Auto Show. The first of the racecars will be driven by Tanner Faust and Brian Deegan in the GRC season kicking off this year. Later in the year, another Ford sponsored driver will step behind the will of a similar racecar.

That driver is Hoonigan Ken Block and we will undoubtedly see Block blasting through the streets of some city in his next YouTube video behind the wheel of this new car. Block will also compete in the GRC and other events using the vehicle.

Would Canada welcome back pioneering Citroen?

Oct 14 2014 2:26pm CDT | Source: Driving Canada

Think about the high-tech features in modern cars today: headlights that turn with the steering to provide better visibility in corners; height-adjustable suspension; rain-sensing wipers; variable-assist power steering. For these now-common features, you can thank French automaker Citroen, which introduced them to the mass-market automobile marketplace decades ago. The Citroen DS, introduced in the mid-1950s, was the brand’s true technology pioneer. Its styl ...
