Jourdan Serderidis will take to the wheel of the EcoBoost-powered Ford Fiesta WRC for two rounds of this year’s FIA World Rally Championship.
Experiencing the power and performance of the top-specification Fiesta on asphalt and gravel, the Greek driver will take to the wheel of M-Sport’s championship-winning Ford Fiesta WRC at Rallye Deutschland in August, and again at Rally Australia in November.
Since making his World Rally Championship debut at the 2013 edition of Wales Rally GB, Serderidis has become a regular face on the world stage.
Having made his debut with the Ford Fiesta R5, he and co-driver Frédéric Miclotte contested three seasons as part of the championship’s premier support series before progressing to become the 2017 WRC Trophy Champions.

Following the huge success of the new-generation world rally cars, the pairing are now eager to experience the very highest level of competition for themselves.
“I am extremely pleased to be back with M-Sport – the reigning World Champions – and even more so with the latest Ford Fiesta WRC which is the best car you can drive in rally nowadays,” Serderidis said.
“I perfectly understand the chance I have and I will make the necessary efforts and preparation to make the most of the opportunity.”

“Considering these two rallies, I hope to secure a top-fifteen place in Germany and a top-ten place in Australia which represents a reasonable target for me.”
M-Sport Managing Director, Malcolm Wilson said the team is trying to help him secure some championship points.
“Knowing how hard Jourdan works – and how much experience he has at this level – I have no doubt that he will put absolutely everything into these drives. And our aim is to help him secure his first FIA World Rally Championship points with a new-generation world rally car,” he said.
