PREVIEW M-Sport Ford World Rally Team - Rally Sweden 2019
Team secured the very first #WRC
2 Pro victory at last month’s Rallye Monte-Carlo and will return to the snow-covered stages of #rally
Sweden with two EcoBoost-powered #Ford
Fiesta R5s for #gusgreensmith
Greensmith made history when he became the first #WRC
2 Pro winner last month, but the Brit will face a fresh challenge when he tackles a classic snow #rally
for only the second time in his career.
The Mancurian first took to the white stuff in 2017 when he secured fifth place in the #WRC
2 category. Having developed his skills over the past two years, Greensmith will be keen to show his potential against some of the championship’s most experienced snow specialists next week.
Getting his season underway next week, Pieniążek also has limited experience on snow when compared to others in the #WRC
2 Pro category. The Pole did however finish eighth overall when contesting last year’s Arctic #rally
Lapland, and has been working hard in the lead up to his debut with the Fiesta R5.
Getting to grips with M-Sport and Ford’s most successful global #rally
car whilst improving his skills on the ice, Pieniążek conducted a comprehensive test in Estonia to familiarise himself with the high-speed sensation that only comes with studded tyres, ice and snow.
The two crews might not have the same experience as their rivals when it comes to winter rallying, but the Fiesta is a proven winner – securing all but one #WRC
2 victory on snow and ice since the category was introduced in 2013.
