Ford has begun looking into the possibility of their company producing cars that comply with the Super 2000 formula through their offshoot, M-Sport.  According to the company's competition chief, Jost Capito, Ford have commenced a feasibility study on the profitablity of building cars that would comply with the rules for the privateer rally market.  Capito made the announcement during last week's Propecia Rally New Zealand.

"We don't yet know which production Ford model would be the most suitable and the decision on whether we proceed down this path depends on this being a profitable move", he said. "There are attractive factors about Super 2000 - for example, it could become the world's premier formula though there is currently no indication that World Rally Cars will not continue. In the meantime, the Focus World Rally Car will stay as Ford's official car in the World Rally Championship."

If Ford proceeded down the S2000 path, it would allow them to compete in the Production World Rally Championship against Mitsubishi and Subaru who currently partipate in the category. As well as the company's current involvement with the Focus World Rally Car, they are currently producing a range of kits that enable the Group N Fiesta to compete in more than 15 One Make Championships around the world, with great success.
