Ford Fiesta good and ready for X Games

Ford brings the Fiesta Movement right on the racetrack there when some of the minded city autos in Europe are campaigned now on X Games 15 month at the end. The rally compact racer however is slated to be seen at the motor sport in North America debuting at the future Pikes Peak International Hill Climb, located in Colorado. The car’s run on hill is therefor guaranteed to be a lot more than only some shakedown run.

'The new Fiesta is already creating headlines around the world' stated Brian Wolfe, the director at Ford North America Motorsport. 'The announcement that it would compete at Pikes Peak was greeted so positively by enthusiasts everywhere. Now, to back it up with competition at the X Games will just create even more buzz for the car'.

'We are very excited to see the Fiesta competing not only at the Pikes Peak Hill Climb, but also at the X Games in LA' affirmed Jost Capito, the director of Ford Global Motorsport Business Development. 'The competition will be extremely strong in both events, but we’ve put together a strong team with the ROCKSTAR/BF Goodrich Tires Fiestas and our all star drivers. The Olsbergs Motor Sport Evolution race team is doing an outstanding job in preparing the cars for both of these world famous events'.
