Article by Christian A., on November 2, 2010

If your dream was to imitate rally drivers like Mikko Hirvonen, Jari-Matti Latlava or Ken Block, now is your chance to really do this as Ford revealed its new R2 rally package designed for the all-new 2011 Fiesta.

The car is already available throughout Europe, but the good news is that this new package will be available also in the United States, ready to take you in the RallyCar’s Rally America National Championship.

The package is now available for order through Team O’Neil Motorsports, a division of Team O’Neil Rally School in New Hampshire (info@teamoneil.com).

The package is developed by M-Sport, Ford’s WRC partner since 1997, and will transform any production version Fiesta into a rally car.

Also, the package includes engine parts that will increase the power of the 1.6-liter Ti-VCT four-cylinder engine to 168 horsepower and 134 lb.-ft. of torque using new pistons, conrods, camshafts, valve springs, injectors, airbox, air filter and a sump baffle kit.

This means a 40 percent increase in horsepower, comparing it to the standard Fiesta. Other upgrades include: five-speed Sadev sequential gearbox with flat shift gear cut, Reiger adjustable dampers with Eibach springs, ventilated disc brakes with AP four-piston competition calipers and a new T45 steel multipoint roll cage.

In addition to this kit, Ford Racing will offer a Stage 1 kit based on the R2 package. The new Stage 1 kit consists of a roll cage, ball joints, engine performance upgrades, dampers and a limited-slip differential.
