M-Sport Ford will take a top-level WRC specification Ford Fiesta to the Rally Legend festival in San Marino in October.

The Cumbrian team will head to one of the largest rallying celebrations in the world, set to take place between October 8-11, with the support of long-term sponsor Michelin and their selected driver will be announced closer to the event.

Rally Legend, now a traditional date on the rallying calendar, sees a large selection of cars entered every year, all of which have been part of the sports history and last year was won by WRC regular Thierry Neuville in a Hyundai i20 WRC.

M-Sport’s relationship with Michelin helped the team take Sebastien Ogier to the Driver’s title in 2017, when the team beat Citroen, Hyundai and Toyota to the Manufacturer’s crown and Ogier’s co-driver Julien Ingrassia also won the Co-Drivers title all in that same year.

“The Ford Fiesta WRC is one of our most special and successful cars and what we achieved will be remembered for a very long time,” said Team Principal Richard Millener on the news.

“But none of it would have been possible without the support of our partners, and it’s a pleasure to be able to showcase it at an event as prestigious as Rally Legend with a partner as valued and respected as Michelin.”

The 2020 FIA World Rally Championship is set to get back underway at the beginning of September, with the newly created Rally Estonia set to be the first event since the COVID-19 pandemic brought the season to a halt back in March.
