Ford Racing has announced its 2011 RallyCar contingency program to support competitors who campaign Ford entries in three classes of the 2WD division. The Ford Racing contingency payouts will be available for all Ford competitors at the RallyCar 2011 Rally America National Championship events as well as for Fiesta entries at RallyCar regional events.

Ford Racing contingency program will award competitors competing in the Fiesta Sport Trophy (FST) championship featuring the R2 Fiesta as well as competitors in Group 2 and Group 5. Ford Racing will also award a championship prize of $5,000 to a Ford driver for wining the overall 2WD Rally America National Championship.

“Our program in RallyCar has been a big part of establishing the Fiesta brand in the United States,” said Scott Denby, Ford Racing Business Manager. “Fiesta offers competitors a great Rally platform which has benefitted from years of development in Europe and we’re committed to helping reestablish 2WD rallying in the U.S. with Fiesta. From our involvement in the Team O’Neil Fiesta Rally Experience, to our growing support of RallyCar, their competitors and enthusiasts, we are excited for the future of the sport.”

“Ford is bringing support and excitement to 2WD rally that RallyCar has been missing,” said J.B. Niday, RallyCar Managing Director. “The Ford Fiesta Sport Trophy should develop into an exciting series and their contingency program support for any Ford demonstrates their broad commitment to rally racing.”
