Double World Rally Champion Marcus Gronholm has tested the Ford Fiesta he will drive at the Pikes Peak hillclimb in America next month.
The Finn drove the car, run by the Olsberg Motor Sport Evolution team, for two days in Sweden, completing the test last night.
The test marked Gronholm's only chance to drive the car before he arrives in the US, when he will test in Colardo just before making his debut at the July 19 event.
"The car was quite good," said Gronholm. "We have lots of power. It's 800 horse power, which is very nice! But it's not easy to get all of that power down, at the moment, it's a bit like a switch, so we have some more work to do.
"I wouldn't say I feel confident now. I feel better having driven the car, so I know more about what it's going to be like in the car, but the place we tested was not so much like Pikes Peak - it was Sweden. So, we have to wait until we get to America for the next test. Let's see then."
