Ford hit back at illegal car talk

The comments, made in a Letter to the Editor on www.rallysportmag.com.au, stated that the cars were outside the S2000 rules, because of their build cost.
But Laws says that is not the case.
“I can assure you and your readers that when it comes time to sell a car, it will be well short of that figure. There is a cap as to what a new S2000 car will cost and that is 150,000 Euro in tarmac competition trim,” Laws sid.
“Many of the European manufacturers are allegedly charging a significant amount more than that amount for a gravel spec car, but regardless, the rule is as stated above.
“I would also note that the approximate cost of a driveline package from Sadev in France is sold at a mandated FIA maximum price, which is around the $50,000 mentioned. Again, not considered illegal by the FIA or CAMS.”
Britek Motorsport have already advertised this year’s Fiestas for sale, with the cars becoming available to interested purchases at the end of this year’s Australian Rally Championship.
