RE: New sponsor for Ford

Jost Capito, Director of Ford Team RS, announced today a new partnership between BP and Ford Rallye Sport in the World Rally Championship. The meeting took place at the Lamina Center on the site of the Acropolis Rally. The new livery of the Ford Focus RS WRC was unveiled at the same time, under the watchful eyes of the Ford drivers and Team Principal Malcolm Wilson.

"Ford and BP are both leading global organisations and associations between energy companies and the automotive industry have long produced fruitful partnerships in the world of motorsport." said Jost Capito at the announcement. "BP's support of Ford in the world rally championship will create both technology and business opportunities for both parties and the announcement comes at a very exciting time for the Ford BP Rallye Sport team."

"Our radically new Focus RS World Rally Car captured the imagination of the public on its first two rallies, both with its looks and its speed. We have three of the brightest young drivers in the sport in our line-up and I believe that Ford and BP can confidently look ahead to successful times together," added an enthusiastic Jost Capito.

BP's General Manager of Group Advertising and Sponsorship, Richard Buitenhek, said the company was looking forward to entering the world rally arena.

"BP has a portfolio of world class brands, including BP and Castrol, and we see our partnership with Ford in the world rally championship as the ideal platform to communicate those brands to the millions of rally fans who follow the sport either on television or at the events themselves." said Buitenhek. "It also allows BP to demonstrate the special relationship that we have developed with the Ford Group over the past few years and which we intend to build further in the future."

"World rallying is an excellent proving ground for Castrol to develop and test the latest generation of lubricants. The extreme conditions in which the sport takes place allows Castrol to push lubricants technology to the limit and the benefits will be seen in the performance of the Ford BP team and in the products produced for road cars," added Buitenhek.

What could be better than a "Oil Company" sponsoring you?

That's a very sophisticated FIA homologated, ELPA endorsed, Greek emergency brake, I'm surprised you had to ask.

:p

Too cool, I love the teeth! I must have one. If I win the lottery, M-sport is gonna end up with a good chunk of the prize.

Look, they even put my name on one. They keep screwing up the county flag though.
