M-SPORT’S 2016 LIVERY REVEALED
The M-Sport World Rally Team Ford Fiesta RS WRCs will be adorned with an evolution of last year’s popular livery for the 2016 FIA World Rally Championship (WRC).
The 2015 design quickly became a fan favourite and the team were keen to continue the same theme moving forward.
In a poll conducted by the WRC Promoter on WRC.com, M-Sport’s offering was voted the best looking manufacturer car of 2015 with 34 percent of the public vote – a huge figure when compared to that of their manufacturer rivals.
Continuing the trend, this year’s design maintains the eye-catching blue stripes that hark back to some of Ford’s most iconic rally cars. The white base however has been replaced with a popular colour from Ford’s 2016 palette – Nitrous Blue.
As well as being applied to the Fiesta RS WRCs of Mads Østberg and Éric Camilli, the bold new look will also appear on the new evolution Ford Fiesta R5 of Elfyn Evans which is confirmed to start both Rallye Monte-Carlo and Rally Sweden.
Team Principal, Malcolm Wilson OBE, said:
“The 2015 livery was immensely popular so rather than changing it completely, the team opted for an evolution which has created a bold look for our 2016 FIA World Rally Championship campaign.
Drawing inspiration from what continues to be a strong technical partnership with Ford, this year’s colour scheme creates a fresh look for our new team.
“We also continue our partnerships with Michelin, Castrol and our valued trade partners – without whom this project would not be possible.”
