M-Sport confirmed today at the 2015 Autosport International show that it would be providing two Ford Fiesta ST RX cars to Bryan Herta Autosport for the 2015 Red Bull Global Rallycross season.
Since launching the car in 2013 Ken Block has achieved success in both the Red Bull GRC and FIA World Rallycross Championships. With two event wins and more heat wins than any other GRC driver, Block has helped showcase the potential of the M-Sport prepared car.
In 2013 Herta run an ex-Scott Speed X Games winning Ford Fiesta; Austin Dyne took on driving duties and showed promising pace. The step up to two cars from M-Sport shows a serious bid for the 2015 title.
M-Sport Managing Director Malcolm Wilson OBE said “Ken [Block] showcased the power and performance of the Ford Fiesta ST RX with his numerous achievements last year and it is great to see that the car is proving to be an attractive option for a number of new competitors.
“Rallycross is a sport on the up and we hope to continue our progress and development as the sport continues to grow.
