Background to the Fiesta Sport Trophy International...

With the Fiesta able to compete throughout the world in near-identical pan-European championship events, and in the Fiesta SportTrophy International without having to change specification, the FST provides a direct stepping stone towards the World Rally Championship.

2011 will also see the start of the FIA WRC Academy, a new six round series using Ford Fiesta R2 Rally cars supplied by M-Sport. The series will act as a step forward for young drivers to work their way up the ranks into world rallying. The series is hoping to attract drivers from across the world and, with an arrive and drive set up, it is likely to attract a diverse crowd. With the ‘rungs’ falling into place on Ford’s ‘Ladder of Opportunity’, there can be no better place to start rallying than the Fiesta SportTrophy.
