    Cool Ford Takes it 2nd Consecutive WRC Title



    Ford today won its second consecutive world title by securing the manufacturers' crown in the FIA World Rally Championship with the Focus RS World Rally Car 07. The BP-Ford World Rally Team finished Rally Ireland this afternoon with a 21-point lead to secure the prestigious title with one event remaining in the 16-round series.

    The team led the gruelling championship, which spans five continents on surfaces as diverse as snow, asphalt and gravel, since the third round in Norway in February. It has secured enough points to claim the title for 2007, even though one round in Britain remains.

    I wonder if the news will make it or ever show up in a Ford America Car Ad ?

    Unlikely. For DECADES Ford had the winningest (is that a word?) car of all time in its lineup and not a single mention was made in the US: the Ford Escort.

    Dear Ford:

    Please get your head out of your ass and bring the Focus Rally RS to the states. I guess you haven't gotten the memo showing Mitsubishi and Subaru's success with AWD, high powered, stellar performing WRC inspired cars?
    Please research Subaru and Mitsubishi and follow suit.
    Putting the Cosworth engine in them and not one of your own boat anchors would be even better!

    Sincerely,
    Everyone in the 21st Century

    I thought this year they were going to mix it up and make an SUV bigger than Rosie O'donnell's ass.
