Focus World Rally car debuts at Goodwood
3 July 2006

Ford's latest Focus RS World Rally Car will make its British debut at next weekend's Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Former World Champion Marcus Gronholm will drive the car up the hill and through the forest 'special stage' on Sunday 9th July, with Mikko Hirvonen behind the wheel on Friday and Saturday, the 7th and 8th.

Ford debuted this car in the Monte Carlo rally this year, since when it has won three times.

Gronholm and Hirvonen lie second and fourth in the World Rally Championship. Ford is pleased with the fact that it has managed 68 consecutive points finishes in the WRC, having scored in every rally since the Monte Carlo in 2002.
