Autocar was given access to the team on Thursday's shakedown session at Margam Park, where we spoke to the team's drivers, as well as the fine-tuned technical team which ensures the cars are in optimum shape.

We then headed back to the rally HQ in Cardiff Bay, where we were shown the cars in more detail. You can see the hi-res pics from behind the scenes at Ford here.
