    Cool Ford extends WRC participation with new 2year agreement

    Ford of Europe announced today it is extending its participation in the FIA World Rally Championship into 2012 and 2013.

    Long-term partner M-Sport, the British-based preparation company, which has successfully operated Fordís WRC activities since 1997, will continue to operate the programme from its state-of-the-art facilities at Dovenby Hall in north-west England.

    The Fiesta RS World Rally Car will continue as Fordís WRC flagship in 2012 and 2013. The car, based on the successful Fiesta road car, claimed a clean sweep of the podium in both the first and final rounds of its debut season this year.

    Finlandís Jari-Matti Latvala and co-driver Miikka Anttila, who topped the world rankings for special stage victories in 2011 and won the final round of the championship in Britain last month, are confirmed as team leaders for 2012.

    They will be partnered by former world champion Petter Solberg and Chris Patterson, who have signed a one-year agreement to drive the teamís second Fiesta RS WRC in all 13 rounds. The experienced Solberg won the world title in 2003 and the 37-year-old Norwegian has 13 world rally wins to his name. It will be his second stint with Ford, having launched his world rally career with the team in 1999.
